In the photo shot by BJ Pascual, Uy is wearing an oversized black polka-dotted suit but eyes are drawn to her left hand encircled by an engagement ring. She captioned the photo “In all lifetimes, always a yes.”

It was an exclusive tell-all interview with The STAR’s Supreme in 2018 where Uy revealed the father of her son, Xavi, now three years old, and shared how they met.

According to the interview, Isabelle Daza was the one who introduced Uy and Racaza to each other in a business meeting in May 2016 and the two connected immediately. They didn’t hear from each other for a month and after another encounter later, the two recognized that their bond could lead their relationship a step further.

In February 2017, Uy found out she was pregnant and on her seventh month, she flew to the United States and gave birth to a baby boy in September 2017.

In 2018, Uy introduced her son to the world by posting a photo of her with the then six-month-old on her lap on Instagram and captioned the photo “Xavi.”

Even before Uy’s revelation in her tell-all interview, the couple had been hounded by controversy as Racaza was still married to accomplished physician Dr. Geraldine Zamora when Uy and Racaza began their relationship. 

It was reported that Racaza was the one who filed the annulment, with a court hearing that began in May 2017 and ended in January 2018. Racaza and Zamora share a daughter from their marriage.

Uy, who was previously linked with actor John Lloyd Cruz and former President Noynoy Aquino, was in a relationship with British Richard Griffiths who works in the shipping industry before she met Racaza.
