The caption reads: “Happy to welcome you to our big happy and crazy family. Soon!!! Mrs Maine Mendoza Atayde ka na. Can’t wait for the Big Day. Love you, my soon to be Daughter in law.”
Just as fond, Maine responds, “Aahhhh thank you so much Roco, Campo, and Atayde family for last night. Had such a wonderful time with everyone. Thank you, tita… future mom!!! Love you.”

Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza’s pamamanhikan
Prior to this, Arjo made an effort to visit Maine’s relatives in Bulacan—a gesture called “pamamanhikan” wherein a bachelor respectfully asks for the maiden’s parents’ approval.
Sylvia, has also shared some IG snap of their travel, as they rode a helicopter to Bulacan. Attached with the post is a caption that reads: “Off to a very important decision.”
Maine and Arjo started their romance in December 2018, when they were cast in “Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles.” Several reports have it that the two will tie knot somewhere in Northern Luzon some time in July 2023.
