TV director and now Taguig congressman Lino Cayetano will be tying the knot with Fille Saint Merced Cainglet, his girlfriend of three months.
Entertainment reporter Ogie Diaz broke the news on his website, revealing that the wedding is set this month. The groom-to-be, however, refused to give further details about the wedding.
"Outside Metro Manila gaganapin ang kasal; this month na nga ang kasal; family affair lang talaga ang kasal at sa reception na lang imi-meet ang piling-piling bisita," Ogie Diaz shared.
According to reports, Direk Lino has formally introduced Fille as his fiancee to some colleagues from the House of Representatives. Meanwhile, Direk Lino's older brother, Senate Majority Leader Allan Peter Cayetano confirmed the news in an interview with Rappler.com at the senate.
"For more than a month, he’s (Lino) really been talking about settling down, being in love and for the last couple of weeks, he said that he’s very, very serious and they just wanna do it, settling down and deciding to stay together as husband and wife. When they’ll actually do it and how they’ll actually do it, I’ll leave it up to them," said the senator.
The sudden wedding announcement created speculations that Fille, a former star player of the Ateneo Lady Eagles volleyball team, was pregnant. However, sources close to the couple denied the rumor.
The 36-year-old Direk Lino met 23-year-old Fille last summer in a UAAP volleyball tournament. Before the two became a couple, the director was previously in a relationship with host Bianca Gonzalez, stylist Liz Uy and actress KC Concepcion. He was also once linked to Kris Aquino.
