Paolo Paraiso’s Kids Were the Best Men in His Wedding

Actor Paolo Paraiso married his longtime girlfriend Jessica Sto. Domingo. His kids with Mylene Dizon served as his best men.

Actor Paolo Paraiso and his longtime love Jessica Sto. Domingo tied the knot last September in Virgin Beach in Batangas where family and close friends attended. What made it special was that his two children with Mylene Dizon, Tomas and Lucas, were present. They even served as his best men!

“My Best Men, @paraisotomas and @lxsparaiso, I love [you] with all my heart. I will forever cherish your wonderful speeches,” he wrote on Instagram.

Some of the celebrities present at the wedding included Paolo’s sister Bubbles, host Phoemela Baranda, and actors Max Eigenmann, Geoff Eigenmann, and Richard Gutierrez.

In an Instagram post, Bubble shared a sweet and humorous message for her brother.

“So many happy tears and laughter during the whole weekend that was filled with love, good vibes, amazing people, and lots of alcohol,” she said. “Also, I can officially say that playing the roles of sister of the groom + bridesmaid + reception host + driver of the Best Men was more physically exhausting than doing a triathlon.” 

Father and son relationship

Although he and Mylene Dizon have long parted, Paolo makes sure to spend as much time as he can with his two children. In July, he even shared a photo of him and his two kids with Jessica during a lunch date.

In a 2021 interview, he described his setup with Mylene about their sons.

“If the boys are with me, we do [the] usual stuff that dads and their sons do—play, swim, bike, and we all love eating, too!” he told the Business Mirror.

In the same interview, he also shared that he continues to emphasize the importance of health to his boys.

“They’re growing up fast and teenagers start to focus on activities they enjoy. So I always tell them to choose activities that will make them happy, and keep them healthy and fit. The pandemic has slowed everybody down somehow, so we just have to be innovative on the kind of activities we do—running, walking, biking, swimming indoors if we have or know of accessible places for these stuff. But it is important that we keep our bodies active.”

Congratulations to Paolo and Jessica on their wedding!
