21 Jan – JC Santos recently confirmed that he is already married, with a kid on the way.

As reported on ABS-CBN News, the actor shared the good news during the press conference of his new movie, "On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets", saying that he tied the knot with his high school crush, Shyleena Herrera in September last year.

"I really am thankful to the Lord for fulfilling all my prayers, all my dreams, last year... Aside from my career, I met my high school friend whom I had a crush on 15 years ago and this time I didn't let her go," Santos said.

Santos said that after dating for a few months, he told Herrera's parents of his intention to marry her, and tied the knot soon after.

He also said that the two of them will be welcoming their first child next month.

As to why he kept his marriage and baby news a secret earlier, the actor said that they never intended to keep it hidden from the public.

"Nobody asked, and my social media has always been focused on my work," he added.
