Entertainment columnist and talk show Lolit Solis claimed on her radio show and tabloid column that preparations were under way for a planned beach wedding of actors John Lloyd Cruz and Ellen Adarna that will take place either on the last week of this month or early in February.

Citing a source from Ellen’s home province of Cebu, Solis revealed very specific details about the surprise nuptials including the identity of sponsors like Dr. Cuanang (presumably the renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Joven Cuanang) of St. Luke’s Medical Center, and former politician and diplomat Alberto “Bert” Romulo.

Solis added that a caterer and a florist had also been contracted for the event. John Lloyd, she added, gifted Ellen, an engagement ring reportedly worth almost P3 million.

The couple met and grew close as cast members of the ABS-CBN sitcom “Home Sweetie Home.” Ellen is reportedly five months pregnant.

Until recently, neither John Lloyd, 34, nor Ellen, 29, had admitted their relationship although they had been widely rumored to be a couple for months.

That was until Friday, January 5, when Ellen posted a photo of a family gathering in Cebu. The photo which Ellen captioned “Fambam” also included John Lloyd who, according to Solis, spent Christmas and the New Year as a guest of Ellen’s family.

In the comments section of the same photo, Ellen was quoted as having replied in Cebuano to a follower, “Di ba??? Hahaha! Kinsay nag too na ma kami diay lol!” (“See? Hahaha! Who would have thought that we’re going to be a couple?”).

Last December 28, Ellen also posted a photo of her being kissed by John Lloyd that was supposedly taken in Zermatt, Switzerland.

Ellen and John Lloyd have yet to admit her rumored pregnancy.

Regarded as one of the country’s leading men and until his involvement with Ellen, one of the most eligible bachelors, John Lloyd has been involved in numerous well-publicized relationships with Kaye Abad, Krista Ranillo, Ciara Sotto, Liz Uy, Ruffa Gutierrez, Shaina Magdayao and Angelica Panganiban. He was also reported to have briefly dated Maja Salvador and longtime leading lady, Bea Alonzo which both actresses denied.

Krista and Ciara have since gotten married although Ciara has separated from husband Jojo Oconer in 2016. Kaye, who is also married to actor Paul Jake Castillo gave birth to their first child, a boy, just a few days before Christmas last year while another former girlfriend, celebrity stylist Liz Uy, is rumored to have recently given birth. The father is reportedly Raymond Racaza, chief operating officer of Xurpas, a technology solutions company specializing in gaming apps.

Prior to John Lloyd, Ellen has also been romantically linked with actors Diether Ocampo and Ejay Falcon, businessmen Filo Cucueco and Raoul Olbes, basketball player JC Intal, political scion Raymund Romualdez and presidential son Sebastian “Baste” Duterte.
