US-based celebrity and former MTV Asia VJ Donita Rose got married to her non-showbiz fiancé, gospel singer Felson Palad, in a sunny ceremony in Southern California, four months following their engagement in May.
Rose took to social media to announce that she finally tied the knot with Palad and shared some snaps from their garden wedding ceremony held in a private estate in the city of San Clemente.
“Surely, your goodness and unfailing love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever,” read her Instagram post.
The former TV host wore a white short-sleeved wedding dress, while Palad looked dapper in his cream suit.
Palad also shared a photo on Instagram. “It took 37 years,” he wrote.
In the comments section of Rose’s post, celebrities KC Concepcion, Ana Roces, Alessandra De Rossi, and Iya Villania-Arellano expressed their best wishes to the couple.
The former actress’s impersonator, Donita Nose, also congratulated the newlyweds.
“Wow! Parang kailan lang ka-video call lang natin siya. Now eto na. (We were just having a video call with him last time. Now, you’re finally married.) I’m so happy for [the] both of you, twinny. Congratulations nang bongga (Warmest congratulations),” she commented.
In a now-inaccessible Instagram story, model and actress Ruffa Gutierrez also shared her happiness for Rose.
“Cheers to second chances! I love you, @dashofdonita. Congratulations to the newlyweds,” she said.
“I’m so happy for you, Dee! The momshies and I can’t wait to meet the man who swept you off your feet,” Gutierrez added in another story.
Joshua Paul, Rose’s son with former husband Eric Villarama, walked her down the aisle.
On March 27, Rose had posted a photo on Instagram, with a partly-covered face of Palad, hinting about her dating status. On April 1, the former TV host revealed her partner’s entire face in another post. “My plus one for LA Fashion Week,” she captioned.
