Melason and their reconciliation

Jenny Molbog-Mendoza

MELASON is back.

In July, their fans and friends were shocked to learn that Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco called it quits after almost three years of marriage.

The split, based on what the actor shared on social media, stemmed from jealousy.

He narrated that it took two months before he learned that his wife had a leading man in the now defunct Kapamilya afternoon soap "I Will Survive."

Accordingly, the situation brought tension between them, especially that he never gave a nod for her to have a partner in her show.

"Hanggang sa dumating ang punto na nanlalamig na kaming mag-asawa sa isa't isa, 'di na nagpapansinan sa bahay. Hanggang sa ako'y sa kabilang kwarto na natutulog," Jason admitted via an Instagram post. "Almost two months na kaming ganun. Ako'y iyak ng iyak parati, di pa ako nakaranas ng ganoong iyak sa buong buhay ko, sa lungkot na nangyayari sa amin, hanggang sa dumating na parati na kaming nag-aaway."

But that was a few months ago. Things are different now.

During the September 30 episode of Melai's morning show with Karla Estrada and Jolina Magdangal, the couple announced that they are now more than being reunited as they have just received another blessing.

She dished that their daughter, Mela, will soon become a big sister.

"Siya ang sinasabi naming bagong kapamilya dito sa 'Magandang Buhay,'" she quipped. "Ten weeks [na]akong pregnant!"

When asked about Jason's reaction, she had this to say, "Tapos sinabi ko kagaad kay Jason. Tapos sobrang saya niya na madadagdagan na ang aming family, kaya happy family kami.”
