Shaira Diaz revealed that she and her fiancé, Edgar Allan Guzman are planning to get married in 2026.

In the recent episode of Fast Talk With Boy Abunda, Tito Boy asked the TV personality about their decision to remain celibate until marriage.

"Ako gusto ko talaga dahil naniniwala ako at ino-honor ko talaga po ‘yung mga binigay kong salita sa magulang ko, ‘yung mga binigay nila sa aking advice,” she said, adding that her decision was rooted from Bible.

"And siyempre sa Bible rin po. ‘Yun naman talaga, na dapat walang ganito before marriage."

The Unang Hirit host then clarified that she is not against couples having other perspectives on love, marriage, and sex.

"Wala talaga akong against sa mga hindi gumagawa noon. Siguro sa akin talaga choice ko talaga na gusto ko na i-save ‘yon sa pagkakasal namin.

Before heading to the highlight of the show, the Fast Talk, Tito Boy asked Shaira about their wedding date, confirming if it was in 2026.

“Basta ang kasal ay sa 2026?" Tito Boy asked.

“2026, opo,” Shaira responded.

On remaining celibate until marriage

The couple, who recently revealed they'd been engaged for two years, openly talked about the realities of practicing sexual abstinence in their 11-year relationship.

The pair were asked in an interview on Fast Talk with Boy Abunda on Feb. 19 about how easy or difficult it was to be celibate.

"First two years namin, tito Boy, umiiyak ako sa kanya," Edgar said. "Kasi ang hirap. To be honest, ang hirap. Sobrang... Noong time na iyon parang hindi ko na kaya. Kasi siyempre, 'di ba?"

"Kaya sabi ko talaga sa kanya, 'Baba, hindi ko na kaya.' Pero noong may sinabi siya sa'kin na, 'Kung mahal mo talaga ako, hihintayin mo 'ko.'

The 35-year-old actor continued to say that he chose to remain abstinent because of Shaira.

"Sabi ko nga noong nag-announce kami sa engagement namin na I respect Shaira a lot," he said.

For her part, Shaira shared that she chooses to be celibate because of a promise she made to her parents.

"Ino-honor ko po 'yung family ko, especially my mom and dad. 'Yan po ang promise ko sa kanila talaga na kahit iwan niyo ako saan, eto, buong-buo pa rin ako. At saka sabi nila na eto yung magiging best gift mo sa magiging asawa mo," the 28-year-old actress said.

The pair first met in 2012 and began dating a year later. In February, they announced that they have been engaged since 2021.
