It’s been a little over a month ago since celebrity couple Derek Ramsay and Ellen Adarna tied the knot in a dreamy mountain resort in Bataan, and they’re still high on romance! In fact, they're planning on celebrating their honeymoon in Africa early next year, at around the second week of January. Elias, Ellen’s son to ex-boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz, will be tagging along in their trip.
In an interview, Derek explains their reason behind this. “Gusto namin ma-experience ni Elias yung na-experience namin. Pinag-iisipan namin ni Ellen ito, e, na kung nandun na kami, tapos yung mga makikita namin, iwi-wish siyempre na makita ni Elias iyun.”
The actor, who treats Elias as his own son, is also excited about the activities they’ll take part in. He says, “Yung Safari, once mo lang gagawin yun, eh. Maganda kung makasama namin si Elias, para ma-experience din niya.”
They also would’ve loved to bring his teenage son Austin, but unfortunately couldn’t because he still has to attend his classes.
Further opening up about his newly married life, the actor says living with Ellen brings him zero pressure at all. “Wala kaming away. Sobrang positive ang energy dito sa bahay. Parang Big Brother lang, ano?” he shares with a smile.
He says their relationship has always been smooth-sailing, even during the wedding preparations, which is ordinarily perceived as stressful for couples. “Nagpaplano pa lang ng wedding, usually nagpi-prepare ka, nai-stress kayo, nag-aaway kayo dahil sa preparations. Pero sobrang relaxed talaga namin ni Ellen. Sobrang comfortable.”
Aside from pulling hilarious pranks at each other, Derek says they’re just enjoying time spent at home for now because of the pandemic. The couple plans to have a baby next year, with Derek hoping that they will have a boy.
Aww, We can’t wait to see this couple have a good time on their honeymoon!
