Joey de Leon and his partner of more than 35 years, Eileen Macapagal, have finally tied the knot! In a report by Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP.ph), the long-time couple got married in an intimate civil wedding ceremony at the Supreme Court of Justice.
On Sunday, March 18, Joey de Leon posted a throwback photo of himself and Eileen on Instagram with the caption, “A Great Wall and a GREAT WIFE!”. This led netizens to speculate that the “Eat Bulaga” host may have finally married his partner in a secret wedding.
The news was confirmed by Pauleen Luna-Sotto the next day when she posted a photo of the newlyweds on Instagram congratulating the two. Tito Sotto also posted the good news on the social media app, saying, “That’s it! Natuloy din!”
Joey de Leon was previously married to actress Daria Ramirez, who is the mother of two of his children: Cheenee and Keempee. Now, at the age of 71, the actor has finally re-married, this time to Eileen, with whom he has three kids: Jocas, Jako, and Jio.
