By Jennifer True Santos

Filipino American actress, TV host and former MTV Asia VJ has married gospel singer Felson Palad in ceremony in San Clemente, California.

Born in Utah, the US-based celebrity, 47, whose real name is Donita Rose Ramos Cavett, has been working as a corporate research and development chef at the popular Filipino and Asian supermarket chain Island Pacific Market based in Los Angeles at the time of her wedding.

At the helm of Island Pacific is founder and president Nino Jefferson Lim, husband of former actress Krista Ranillo.

Donita, whose father is an American military officer and mother from Pangasinan, first married Eric Villarama in Sta. Barbara, California but broke up after 12 years together and a son, JP or Joshua Paul.

JP walked her down the aisle during her wedding with Palad, four months after their engagement.

The former MTV Asia VJ  married Palad four months following their engagement in May.

Donita herself took to social media to announce that she finally tied the knot with Palad and shared some snaps from their garden wedding ceremony held in a private estate in the city of San Clemente.

“Surely, your goodness and unfailing love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever,” she wrote in her Instagram post.

The former TV host wore a white short-sleeved wedding dress, while Palad looked dapper in his cream suit.

Palad also shared a photo on Instagram. “It took 37 years,” he wrote.

In the comments section of Rose’s post, celebrities KC Concepcion, Ana Roces, Alessandra De Rossi, Geneva Cruz, Jackie Forster, and Iya Villania-Arellano expressed their best wishes to the couple.

The former actress’s impersonator, Donita Nose, also congratulated the newlyweds.

“Wow! Parang kailan lang ka-video call lang natin siya. Now eto na. (We were just having a video call with him last time. Now, you’re finally married.) I’m so happy for [the] both of you, twinny. Congratulations nang bongga (Warmest congratulations),” she commented.

Model and actress Ruffa Gutierrez also shared her happiness for Rose.

“Cheers to second chances! I love you, @dashofdonita. Congratulations to the newlyweds,” she said.

“I’m so happy for you, Dee! The momshies and I can’t wait to meet the man who swept you off your feet,” Gutierrez added in another story.
