JAKE Zyrus is bent on marrying his non-showbiz girlfriend, Shyre Aquino, a registered nutritionist-dietitian.
In an ambush interview during the presscon at Luxent Hotel for Frontrow Cares' Biggest Charity Music Festival (December 16 at the MOA Concert Grounds), the transman singer-actor again confirmed his engagement to Shyre.
"She's an amazing woman," said Jake. "And I can't imagine myself not spending the rest of my life with her."
Definitely, the wedding isn't happening in the Philippines, but Jake cannot say particularly where. "I still don't know (where), maybe in the US, but it's happening next year."
In a report from PEP.ph, Jake's mom, Rachel Pempengco is said to have commented about it: "Better for her if she’s engaged. God bless her."
At least, we see no trace of words coming from what Jake described as 'evil queen.'
