No doubt about it: Cassy and Mavy Legaspi's fam is one of the ~cutest~ celebrity families out there, and we wanted to know if there are any *nuggets* of wisdom when it comes to love that they picked up from their parents Carmina and Zoren! During an interview with Summit Media journalists during their contract renewal with GMA, we asked the twins: "What's the best love advice you got from your parents?"
"Enjoy life," Mavy said. "Ngayon nage-gets ko na yung meaning ng 'enjoy life' kasi parang...[dati] 'Ang simple naman ng sagot mo, Ma or Pa! 'Yon lang, enjoy life? Okay, sige ha, mage-enjoy ako.' But you know, as you mature and get older...mas nage-gets mo."
He said their stories encouraged him to just go with the flow until he finds the right person for him. "That's what they mean by 'enjoy.' Not enjoy na let loose and walwal...but just enjoy life and don't be too strict about it na parang 'dapat by this age mayroon na, dapat kino-court ko na 'to, this month kami na, this month bibilhin ko na 'tong ganyan. Wala, just enjoy."
Adding to what Mavy shared, Cassy said Carmina and Zoren's relationship taught her about timing and the importance of friendship. "Timing sa love...Honestly, na-inspire din ako sa love story ng parents ko na they really started out as friends, as best friends. Tapos yung dad ko, 'Okay I'm here for you.' Tapos, my gosh, naging sila! Can you imagine? Oh my goodness. So ako naman, I guess, now [I] don't have to be in a rush na 'Okay dali dali, dapat may jowa na ako. Dapat may label, dapat ganito'...I guess focus more on the friendship. Because friendship is very important sa love life."
Is there one thing their parents do for each other that they would like to do for a special someone someday?
According to Mavy, seeing their parents' dynamics as best friends and lovers at the same time is something he wants to have in his future relationship.
For her part, Cassy said their parents' wedding "set the bar" for her future boyfriend. ICYDK, Zoren surprised Carmina with a proposal and wedding in 2012 and Cassy and Mavy wore sworn to secrecy prior to the big day!
"The wedding. That really set the bar for my future Mr. Right. Na parang...I deserve to be treated that way also. And it also made me realize on my mom's end na...yes, we can go through heartbreaks, but at the end when you find the one...see, nai-in love ako. My parents are so goals!" a visibly gushing Cassy shared. "At the end, when you find the one, you'll really find the person who treats you right and treats you the way you deserve to be treated. It set the bar for my future guy, and at the same time, it also taught me na you can go through heartbreaks, heartaches, but it's not the end."
ABS-CBN tells us that Carmina and Zoren have known each other since his That's Entertainment days, and that they were actually neighbors. According to Zoren, they fell in love while on vacation in Santorini, Greece! Mavy and Cassy were born in the United States in 2001, and Carmina and Zoren officially tied the knot in 2012. Here's a throwback to Cassy and Mavy's interview with Tito Boy right after their parents' wedding:
