His character Bart Ramirez Jr. in the 2011 fantasy-drama series 100 Days To Heaven may be torn between two amazing and equally-beautiful women, but there’s only one leading lady that occupies the heart of Rafael Rosell in real-life – his gorgeous long-time girlfriend Valerie Gomez Chia.
Not much has been known nor written about her considering that she is non-showbiz, but a little dig on the internet revealed that she’s of Chinese and Spanish decent and they’ve known each other since 2011.
In his conversation with the King of Talk last year on Tonight With By Abunda, he recalled how he met his girlfriend of three years.
WATCH on TWBA: Rafael Rosell talks about his relationship with Valerie
“We met at a gathering sa mga barkada namin. Nagka-eye-to-eye, ‘hi, hello’,” the 37-year-old actor started off, then went on to disclose, “Pero I didn’t think much of it back then. Basta, ‘hi, hello’. She’s pretty and crush ko siya that night and then our friend just exchanged our numbers tapos nagka-textan lang. We just discovered a lot of things in common.”
Even though talking about marriage is already logical for them, Rafael still chose to dodge the questions about it as they prefer keeping it to themselves for it not to be jinxed and for privacy as well.
Going through their sweet and lovely photos together that are uploaded on their respective Instagram accounts and some of which we collated in this gallery, it’s definitely obvious how much they love each other. We also see how much they are fond of goofing around and doing crazy things together and throw puns at one another in the captions of their posts that never failed to amuse their followers. They also love to go on trips and adventures together and tag each other along in various events and shindigs. And if you’re an avid supporter of their love story at least on IG, you would know that they celebrate their monthsary every 20th of each month.
Stay in in love, Rafael and Valerie!
