Romance and Showbiz
Yasmine was married to Alfred Vargas, a Filipino actor and model. She and Alfred meet in Laguna while doing a taping last year.
Alfred said, "Na-meet ko siya backstage, kasi may common friend kami. Tapos, nu'n, ano na, yun na love at first sight na." ("I meet her backstage, 'cause we have a common friend. Then, I fell in love with her at first sight.").
Yasmine Espiritu and Alfred Vargas officially wed in the Supreme Court here in the Philippines last year August 2010. At that time, Yasmine was already pregnant and she went back to Italy after the marriage.
While in Italy, on October 23, 2010, Yasmine gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Alexandria Milan. Then, Alfred went to Italy together with his family.
Alfred was very happy for being there and he felt that it's alright for him to set aside his showbiz career just for his family.
Alfred has this urge to inform the pubic about his newborn daughter but Yasmine's family wanted to temporarily keep it in private. He said that showbiz is different and creates intriguing issues. For him, it stresses to a person outside showbiz.
Yasmine likes to be in private about the newborn daughter issue. She is very shy and doesn't have the poise to be talked about in showbiz.
Privacy helps Yasmine and Alfred enjoy their life in Italy and even in the Philippines.
In June 11 (2011), their baby girl will be baptized. Yasmine and Alfred don't want to hide this event to the public. They don't want to keep it to themselves because their friends and Alfred's co-stars in ABS-CBN already know this. As they go outside and meet with other actors/actresses in showbiz, Alfred proudly introduces his wife, Yasmine Espiritu.
They choose the following famous and honorable sponsors for the baby's christening: Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera, Ricky Lo and Paolo Contis.
Yasmine recently admits that she is currently pregnant for another baby (it might be a girl or a boy). The couple are surprise when they knew that Yasmine is positive in pregnancy. This will be their second child who is expected to be born on the next few months.
Yasmine Espiritu is regarded and known to be as the "look-alike" of Marian Rivera. Her face seems so similar with Marian. And that what makes her more controversial and special.
