Marian Rivera Doppelganger Yasmine Vargas Looks Gorgeous in These Swimwear Photos.

Marian Rivera Gracia-Dantes (born Marian Gracia y Rivera; 12 August 1984 in Madrid, Spain), known professionally as Marian Rivera, is a Spanish Filipino commercial model and actress, best known for her roles in Marimar, Dyesebel, Amaya, and Temptation of Wife. As a recording artist, Rivera has released two studio albums: the Marian Rivera Dance Hits and Retro Crazy. She starred in such films as My Bestfriend's Girlfriend, You to Me Are Everything, and Panday 2.

Marian was included in 2011's Top 20 Endorsers. She was hailed as FHM Magazine's Sexiest Woman in 2008, 2013, and 2014, setting the record of three cumulative victories through voting online and SMS. It’s hard to deny that Yasmine Espiritu-Vargas, Alfred Vargas’ wife, bears a startling resemblance to Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera. The two look so alike that one might mistake for twins or sisters. It was love at first sight for Quezon City Councilor Alfred Vargas and Yasmine Espiritu. Cliché? Yes, but it’s true. In fact, even before they met, they were already in a way “connected” to each other. “I was a fan of Alfred’s,” Yasmine said in an exclusive joint interview with “Startalk” (aired last Saturday) at Café Mondial in Tiendesitas, Pasig City, which is owned by the couple.

Yasmine is half-Filipina and half-Italian who spent most of her growing-up years in Milan. When they finally met on March 16, 2008, in Sta. Cruz, Laguna, where Alfred was having a show, they instantly matched. “When we started getting to know each other,” confessed Alfred, “I visited her at home and she gave me a tour of their house. I was surprised when I saw my poster in her room.” Yasmine was here at that time on one of her regular vacations.

She usually stayed at the family’s ancestral home. “I fell in love with Yasmine at first sight,” recalled Alfred. “She stood out in the audience. I told myself at that moment, ‘This is the girl I want to spend the rest of my life with.’ I was hooked. It was fiesta time and a lot of people were watching the show. After the show, I made it a point to get her cell phone number. I told her, ‘Nagpo-photography ako. Baka naman puwede ko makuha ang cell phone number mo at baka puwede kitang gawing model?’ Bulok na style but it worked. Hindi ako tumigil hangga’t hindi ko nakukuha. Honestly, I told myself at that very momenty, ‘Sigurado akong siya na ang babaing pakakasalan ko, hindi nga lang ako sigurado kung pakakasalanan niya ako.’ Hahahaha!”

That was what Yasmine also had in mind when she first saw Alfred in a TV show. “He’s the guy that I will marry,” she told her lola in jest. Since that fateful first meeting, Alfred didn’t stop until Yasmine became his and his alone. “He’s my first boyfriend and my first love,” added Yasmine who is so shy that when she talked, she was almost whispering. She’s showbiz potential but no, she said, “I’m not comfortable in the limelight.” She’s a fine arts undergraduate.

They got secretly married at the Supreme Court on Aug. 16 last year. A month later, Alfred and his mother and some relatives flew to Milan to formally ask Yasmine’s hand in marriage. They have a six-month-old daughter, Alexandra Milan (born in Milan on Oct. 23 last year), who will be baptized on Saturday, June 11, at the Christ The King Parish Baptistry in Greenmeadows, Quezon City, with Alfred’s manager Lolit Solis and this columnist among the godparents.

Now occupied with being a father and husband, a public and an actor (he took a respite from showbiz and came back as a cast member of the just-concluded ABS-CBN soap “Mutya”), Alfred said he’s thankful for having a “queen at home” who is supportive. “I’m very lucky. Yasmine is not only a good wife and mother, she’s also a good housekeeper. No matter how busy I am, I set aside Tuesday for our family day. I see to it that I don’t have any commitment scheduled on that day. On Sundays, the three of us, with Alexandra in a stroller, walk around UP. Sometimes, nagdya-jogging kami ni Yasmine. ”

Both Marian and Jasmine are lovely ladies that have fair complexions, delicate features, and stunning physiques. Yasmine was a viral sensation at one point because of this uncanny resemblance. She was dubbed Marian’s doppelganger and it’s not hard to see why. Just look at them. It’s almost like they were molded by God from the same batch of clay.

Previously, Yasmine went viral for her beautiful prenup photos with Alfred. Now, the wife of the actor-turned-politician has been making rounds online once more. This time, it’s because of the sizzling hot photos of Yasmine wearing skimpy two-piece bikinis. In a photo gallery published by GMA Entertainment, they compiled nine stunning photos of Yasmine flaunting her beach-ready body.
