Michael de Mesa is known for so many things: a critically acclaimed actor, doting father to his six children, and, finally, a faithful husband to his wife, Julie Reyes-Eigenmann. In over 16 years of being married, the couple has managed to establish a strong bond—a far cry from their failed relationships with their estranged partners in the past. Looking at the veteran star’s social media account, it looks like it only gets better for the two with each passing day.
They may have a huge age difference (13 years, exactly) between them, but Michael and Julie just seem to click in every way. To name a few, both of them are wanderlusts, foodies, gym-goers, and possessors of youthful spirits.
Moreover, they pursue different endeavors—with Michael in showbiz and Julie in the dancing field—but still make it work for their marriage. In fact, the actor just played the role of Roman Dela Vega in the hit soap opera television series, “Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin“. The wife, on the other hand, is best known for her stint as a member of dancing group, Hot Legs.
Oh, did we mention that they’re also lovers of furry babies? Michael and Julie are one of the owners of K9 Couture, a one-stop pet grooming salon in Tiendesitas shopping center in Pasig City.
Earlier in their marriage, the couple settled in the United States, in hopes of living a peaceful and private life. Thanks to their grandchildren, however, the two decided to come back to the Philippines for good so they can watch them grow up. What’s more, they also missed being in the spotlight and doing what they love the most: acting and dancing, respectively.
Faith in love restored!
