“It’s Showtime” hosts Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford tied the knot in a glorious wedding in Costa Del Sol of Balesin Island resort last April 20. However, some people were surprised that the celebrity couple decided to exchange their vows at such a young age.
In an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal, Coleen Garcia admitted that a lot of people asked her “Bakit ang aga mo magpapakasal?”
She unabashedly responded:
“You know kasi a lot of people are telling me before, kasi syempre medyo bata di ba para magpakasal, they were telling me, ‘No, you have to enjoy first yung freedom mo, gano’n-gano’n.’
“But you know, I’m more free with Billy.”
Coleen Garcia admitted that even though Billy was much older than her, she doesn’t feel like he’s holding her down or limiting what she can do with her life.
“I feel like I can be myself more with Billy kasi imbes na tino-tone down ko yung sarili ko, I feel like he’s amplifying me even more.

“There are days na tamad ako, there are days na I’m discouraged, siya pa yung nagsasabi na, ‘Love, you should go spend more time with your friends, you should really go experience new things also kahit wala ako.’”
“Instead of holding me back, siya pa nage-encourage sa ‘kin to experience new things and to really put myself out there.”
At 25 years old, Coleen Garcia also believes that her 10-year gap with husband Billy Crawford is an advantage in their relationship.
“It really helps, I love that I’m with somebody who’s so experienced already, who’s been through so much in life…
“To the point na I don’t have to worry about certain things kasi may mga bagay na pinagdaanan na niya so he was able to give me advice especially since, you know, he’s been in the industry for more than 30 years.
“Also, he’s been all over the world, he lived in the States, he’s lived in Paris, he’s really been everywhere, so it helps, it really helps.”
