Personal life[edit]

Villaroel was previously married to Rustom Padilla (later BB Gandanghari) in 1994, but filed for annulment several months after, which was granted in June 2002.[2]

Villaroel married her partner Legaspi on 15 November 2012; the couple had their twins Maverick Peter and María Cassandra in 2001 in the United States. Legaspi planned the surprise proposal and civil wedding with the help of their families and the network. The ceremony was later aired the following Saturday as the television special Zoren-Carmina: Always Forever, A Wedding Like No Other.[3][4][5][6] The idea of a surprise proposal followed by a flashmob-style instant wedding was inspired by a remarkably similar episode of the US television programme Mobbed, hosted by Howie Mandel.[7]
