PUTRAJAYA: Being a single dad for the past four years, actor Datuk Seri Eizlan Yusof, 48, is ready to tie the knot again.
The father of three is set to wed Natasha Rossa Boudville, 29, of Eurasian descent, on Dec 12.
The bridegroom-to-be made the announcement during a special press conference held at Bora Ombak here today.
Eizlan was introduced to Natasha by a mutual friend four years ago and only became close the past year.
“I decided to make her my wife in September,” said the artiste who never thought of walking down the marriage route again.
“As we got to know each other better, I realised how comfortable I’ve become just by being around her and that’s when I realised she’s the one. Her close relationship with my children also played a big part,” he shared of his future bride who works in the hotel line.
Eizlan said that he was drawn to Natasha because of her personality and also the fact that his three young children (from his previous marriage) had consented to their union.
“Three months ago, I proposed to her after getting the consent from my kids who have since become close to her over the years.”
Natasha said yes and they chose Dec 12 as their solemnisation date.
Their solemnisation ceremony will be held at Bora Ombak with the wedding reception on the following day at the same venue.
Eizlan also said that Natasha, a Eurasian, had embraced Islam in August last year.
“She became a Muslim way before we decided to get married,” he said, adding that he has decided to hide the face of his future bride until their wedding day.
Eizlan was previously married to entrepreneur Vie Shantie Khan in 2007. While blessed with three children, Vie Zara, 11; Zareef Yusof, 9, and Vie Zaara, 6, their marriage only lasted eight years.
