Robi Domingo’s ‘bittersweet’ wedding day: ‘My lola passed away that same morning’


Robi Domingo’s grandmother passed away on the same day he tied the knot with non-showbiz partner Maiqui Pineda. 

A few days after his wedding over the weekend, the TV host took to social media to share the bittersweet moment. 

“January 6 was the happiest day of my life. My heart was filled with immense gratitude -from preps in the morning, to the ceremony, to the reception which lasted until dawn,” Robi described his wedding day. 

Robi said his family had to inform him and Maiqui of his lola’s death later on so as not to spoil their special day. 

“As I was about to leave the place, my mom was sobbing as she tried to tell me that my Lola passed away that same morning. Apparently, my family didn’t tell us so that our focus was our magical day,” said Robi.

The Kapamilya host then reminisced the good memories he shared with his beloved lola.  “‘Ina’, as I fondly called her, took care of me especially when I was a toddler. I loved how she made her ube halaya and Leche flan sa llanera

“Rest in peace, ina. Please look after us together with ama. Thank you, and we love you,” he added.

Robi and Maiqui exchanged their vows in an intimate and private church ceremony more than a year after their engagement in November 2022.
