Zsazsa Padilla can now marry Dolphy

ZsaZsa PAdilla's marriage to her first husband is already annulled. The question is, will Dolphy marry her. Rumors said that the children of Dolphy to other women are against the marriage. 

Here is the news: 
NOW SINGER-ACTRESS Zsazsa Padilla can joke about it.
“Di ko pipikutin si Dolphy,” she quipped. “He hasn’t even proposed yet. I won’t force him to marry me.”
It’s because she has been swamped with questions about her much-delayed wedding to the King of Comedy, especially after the “decree of nullity” to her first marriage (to dentist Modesto Tatlonghari) was granted last week.
Since a shotgun wedding is out of the question, will she consider secretly eloping?
“If ever, it’ll be as quiet as possible. People would just get surprised that we got married,” she quipped.
They’re in no hurry to get hitched, she clarified. “It’s not a big issue for us. We both know where we stand. That we will always be here for each other, in good times and bad. Tried and tested na kami.”
She explained that she and Dolphy would “need to fix a lot of things first.”
Suffice it to say, she admitted, “when I wish for a grand wedding, it would only be for my daughters (Karylle, Nicole and Zia).”
