Pain and heartbreak are always part of loving someone. Although many of us bravely face that fact, some might have kept their hopes low on love in fear of experiencing those shattering moments. This love month, here are some real life celebrity couples to cheer you up and might let you believe in forever again.
Some celebrity couples who already formed a family together continue to be a living testimony that ‘forever’ do exist. The list includes Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez and singer-songwriter/comedian Ogie Alcasid who were married in 2010 and now have a charming son named Nate; superstar Judy Ann Santos and actor/TV host Ryan Agoncillo who were married in 2009 and now have three endearing children Yohan, Lucho and Luna. Magandang Buhay host Melai Cantiveros and actor/comedian Jason Francisco who were married in 2013 now have two beautiful daughters Mela and Stela; It’s Showtime host Mariel Rodriguez and actor Robin Padilla who were married in 2010 now have a lovely daughter named Isabella. And, singer/actress Kaye Abad and actor Paul Jake Castillo who were married in 2016 now have a son named Pio Joaquin. Another is the soon-to-be married couple Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez, who now have two adorable sons Zion and Kai.
Even after these celebrity couples tied the knot, they all continue to inspire us as they sweetly express their love for each other on and off cam. In all their interviews, all these couples also told us that having kids didn’t stop them to have quality time and be intimate together, given that this is one of the most essential factors in marriage.
Besides these married couples who already have kids, Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford also stirred our hearts with how sweet and strong their love has been for each other. Both being hosts of It’s Showtime before, sparks flew for the two of them and everyone witnessed how patiently Billy pursued Coleen on the show. They started dating in 2013, became official after a year and was engaged in 2016. It was in last April 2018 when the couple finally exchanged their ‘I do’s’.
Apart from the married ones, here are some celebrity reel to real couples who proved to us that true love can also happen even in the industry where they always play fictional characters in stories. This list includes the most ‘kilig’ love teams in the industry namely Kim Chiu and Xian Lim or “KimXi” who were first paired in the 2011 romantic comedy drama series My Binondo Girl; King and Queen of Hearts Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla or “KathNiel” who were first paired in the 2012 teen drama Princess and I; Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil or “LizQuen” who were inteoduced as a love team in the 2014 romantic drama series Forevermore; Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia or “JoshLia” who were first seen together in the 2016 box office film “Vince and Kath and James;” and Nadine Lustre and James Reid who were first paired in the 2014 box office film “Diary Ng Panget.” Another couple who are now officially a couple after they first met each other on a project is Dawn Chang and Justin Cuyugan. Their romance started when they both guested in the long-running primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Meanwhile, popstar royalty Sarah Geronimo and actor/triathlete Matteo Guidicelli uplift our hopes of finding true love because of the sweet and steady relationship they continue to set before us. With the help of Billy Crawford, Matteo first caught Sarah’s attention when he patiently waited in line at the back of Sarah’s fans called the Popsters to have a picture with her, during the popstar’s meet and greet in Batangas. Knowing that he really felt something special for Sarah, Matteo then did every effort for Sarah to be his girlfriend. It was in June 2014 when they confirmed their relationship.
Despite all the pain and heartbreaks of being in a relationship, these are the celebrity couples that continue to prove to us that having a special someone is truly wonderful. Let us all be inspired to have faith in love in this month of hearts. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
