Vilma Santos’ husband Ralph Recto admits infidelity!


Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto revealed on Monday her husband, Senator Ralph Recto, once had an affair with another woman.

Santos-Recto, in an interview on Winnie Monsod’s “Bawal ang Pasaway” aired Monday night on GMA News TV, said the senator admitted to her about his infidelity.

“Tinanong ko, totoo ba itong ganyan-ganyan?’ Sabi niya, ‘Totoo,’ (I asked him, ‘is it true?’ And he said it was true),” she said.

Santos-Recto said they had an agreement that if such problem ensued, Senator Recto should just admit about his pecadillo rather than her discovering it from other people.

Santos-Recto said she has forgiven her husband, who she revealed was crying when he said sorry to her.

“O, sige. Next time, be careful. I told him,” said Santos-Recto. She said she told him being married to a show-biz personality like her, people would easily recognize if he’s dating another woman and the news would easily spread and reach her. “I’d know it at once,” she said.

When asked about the possibility of her husband siring an illegitimate child, Santos-Recto said there could be none.

“Siguro naman kung mayroon, lumabas na iyon, ‘di ba? (I think if there’s one, he or she should have come out in the open already, right?)” Santos-Recto told Monsod.

Santos-Recto also recounted Recto was only 21 years old when they met.

“He is 10 years younger than me. He was 21 and I was 31 years old. He was still in school at the time and he didn’t know who I was,” Santos-Recto said.

They have only one child, Ryan Christian Recto.

Prior to her marriage to Recto, the veteran actress-turned-public servant had a son, actor-host-model Luis “Lucky” Manzano, with former partner, actor Edu Manzano.

Angel and Luis Family

Weeks after publicly announcing their rekindled romance, Luis Manzano and Angel Locsin recently met Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto, Luis’s mother, and other family members over dinner.

Locsin, for her part, also shared a snap of them together with Luis’ younger brother Christian and stepfather Senator Ralph Rector. (Photo above)

She wrote:

“Finally, a day off! (Half day off pero keri na) dinner with my awesome boyfriend’s family. I missed them so much.”

The Star for All Seasons was quoted in news reports rating Angel 9 out of 10, 10 being the highest, as a potential daughter-in-law.

Vilma said she was happy that her son and Locsin are finally back together. She said that she admires the actress’ big-heart and compassion for the victims of recent calamities.

“Isa sa mga na-appreciate ko kay Angel, na nakikita ng mga tao, ay matulungin. If there’s anything na pwede niyang i-share or pwede niyang maiabot na tulong pag may kalamidad, she’s always there and that’s a good sign. (Pati) kung paano niya alagaan, paano niya i-respeto at bigyan ng prioridad yung tatay niya, importante yun,” Vilma said in “Tapatan ni Tunying.”

She added that if the couple decides to settle down and start a family of their own, they already have her blessing.

“Alam ko na masaya sila ngayon. Wala namang problema (kung magpakasal) kasi hindi naman ako ang makikisama. Plus the fact na hindi na bago si Angel, at least I know her. They’re back at maligaya sila sa isa’t isa, so we’re happy for them.”
