On the November 28 airing of GMA’s 24 Oras, Joyce Pring, who is set to marry boyfriend Juancho Trivino, asked veteran newscaster Mel Tiangco to be a ninang at her wedding on live television.
On Instagram, Joyce shared a photo with Mel, Arnold “Igan” Clavio, and Vicky Morales as she wrote, “My mom told me I could be anything, so I became makapal ang mukha and asked Ms. Mel Tiangco to be our ninang on live television right beside Ninong Igan.”
The moment happened during the last segment of "Chika Minute" where Joyce was the guest anchor and she was delivering the happy news of her engagement to Juancho. The couple has been engaged since August 2019 but only broke the news in November 2019.
In a quick interview, Mel asked Joyce when the wedding will take place and the Chika Minute segment host revealed that she is marrying Juancho in the first quarter of 2020. Joyce also revealed that the wedding will have a garden setting in a “very special place” where Juancho first said “I love you” to Joyce.
Mel asked if Joyce and Juancho already have a ninang and ninong. Joyce said, “Nandiyan na po si Ninong Igan, makakasama po natin.”
