"Okay na sa akin yun,” Heart told reporters during their Manila reception at the Blue Leaf Filipinas, Wednesday, February 18. (We talked today. He congratulated me and he said 'I am very happy for you.' That's okay with me.)

When asked if she was hoping her parents would come to the reception, Heart said: "Hindi na siguro. Sobrang nang dami nangyaring na magaganda. Wala na ako mairereklamo pa."

(No; so many beautiful things have already happened. I guess I have nothing to complain about.)

As for the message of Heart’s dad to love her unconditionally, Chiz said:  
"Hindi ko na kailangan sabihin pa. Para sa kanya na makita at maramdaman,” he said. (I don't have to say anymore. It is for him to see and feel.)

Mr. Ongpauco and his wife did not attend the wedding in Balesin, but gave a surprise letter at the reception held at the resort, which Heart’s sister and cousin read. (READ: Chiz Escudero on Heart's parents: 'Mahal at tinatanggap ko sila')
