While some reel-to-real loveteams are breaking up nowadays, former on-screen pair-turned-real-life couple Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo continue to go stronger and sweeter in the past 14 years of being together and a decade of being married.
But, did you know that the Philippine Teleserye Queen used to have no plans of getting married? In an interview with Kris TV in 2015, she confessed not seeing herself walking down the aisle and only wished to have a kid once she turned 26, which was fulfilled when she adopted Yohan. Then, her life began to significantly change when Ryan came into her life.
Just like other love stories, they started out as friends when they worked together in the 2004 superserye Krystala, wherein Juday played the titular character while he was one of her leading men. According to Ryan, it was actually not the first time they met for they used to bump into each other during a photo shoot many years ago, which was succeeded by a remarkable encounter when he exclusively interviewed her inside her car for his show.
From being a mere loveteam, their relationship went beyond the screen and they became a couple for some years before he surprisingly asked for her hand in marriage during her 30th birthday celebration on May 14, 2008.
A year after, on April 28, 2009, they tied the knot in an intimate religious ceremony at the San Juan Nepomuceno Church in San Juan Batangas.
At present, both of them are busy with their respective showbiz commitments and personal endeavors, along with being supportive and hands-on parents to their three adorable kids Yohan, Lucho, and Luna on top of their priorities. But in spite of these, Ryan and Juday make sure to still have their “bub-time” by going on dates and travels, especially during their wedding anniversary celebrations, with just the two of them.
May you have more anniversaries to celebrate, Juday and Ryan!
