In the intricate tapestry of Filipino politics, the story of Alan Peter Schramm Cayetano is not only defined by his legislative accomplishments but also by the enduring love and partnership with his wife, Lani Cayetano.
The love story between Alan Peter Cayetano and Lani began in the picturesque setting of Baguio City, where he not only proposed to her but later exchanged vows in March 2004. The proposal, taking place in the same city where their marital journey commenced, adds a touch of serendipity to their narrative.
With an age gap of 11 years, the couple’s love story is a testament to the enduring power of connection that transcends conventional boundaries. Their union, forged in the crucible of political engagement, began when Lani joined the Senate as a Political Affairs Officer for Alan’s late father, the esteemed Rene Cayetano.
Today, as Alan Peter Cayetano serves as a Senator, Lani Cayetano has carved her own path in politics. She currently holds the position of Mayor of Taguig, adding her voice to the governance of the city they both call home.
Lani’s political journey is noteworthy in its own right. Elected as the first female Mayor of Taguig at the age of 28 in 2010, she stands among the youngest local chief executives in the Philippines. Her prior service as the Representative of the 1st and 2nd districts of Taguig-Pateros further underscores her commitment to public welfare.
