We, Filipinos, are known and admired for our close family ties. Thus, it’s highly important for some of us that our partners would get the approval of our family as we went on with the relationship, or before we could take it to the next level.
And the celebrity couples in this Kapamilya Snaps feature are indeed blessed enough to have siblings who are supportive of everything that they do, even when it comes to welcoming a new family member. Read on to find out who they are!
Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza
Despite being among the brightest stars in the country at present, Arjo and Maine are amazingly able to keep their romance lowkey. And after more than three years of being together, they surprised us when they announced last July 29 that they’re already engaged!
Luckily, Arjo has a supportive family to help him out with the preparations for the intimate yet grand proposal, spearheaded by his younger sister Ria. In an Instagram post, Ria wrote: “So excited to officially welcome you into the family,” to which Maine replied in the comments section: “Thank you, Ri!!! I know how much effort you put into this. All wouldn’t have been possible without your assistance too.”
Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano
Being together for more than seven years, LizQuen has indeed formed a tight bond with each other’s family, as they even go on trips together in and out of the country. But Liza has apparently become besties with Enrique’s younger sister Andie, based on the pictures of them together that they post in IG.
They seemed to have never missed greeting one another on their birthdays and being present at each other’s celebrations. In fact, the three of them even created YouTube videos together, such as the fun “Who Knows Me Better” challenge.
Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez
Those who have been following the life of the Gutierrez family would know that Ruffa is the only girl among the six children of Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama. Thus, she found instant sisters in her sisters-in-law Alexa Uichico and Sarah Lahbati – the gorgeous wives of her younger brothers Elvis and Richard, respectively.
The It’s Showtime Sexy Babe judge regards them as her “sestras”, and captioned one of her posts with them: “We take care of each other, watch out for each other, and comfort each other through ups and downs.”
Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff
With how they’re able to complement each other’s personalities, not to mention how adventurous they both are, Anne and Erwan are indeed one of our ultimate celebrity #CoupleGoals. And along with their relationship, the It’s Showtime mainstay has also gained a sister in Solenn Heussaff, who’s also the one that introduced them to each other since they’ve been longtime friends
Making their bond extra awesome was when they experienced pregnancy at the same time, with Solenn giving birth in January 2020, while Anne welcoming her baby two months later in March. Now, as first-time moms, the besties-turned-sisters-in-law have not only gone to various trips together with their beautiful, growing families, but have also established their own clothing brand for kids.
John Prats and Isabel Oli
Since both of them are child stars, we’ve witnessed how talented siblings John and Camille have grown and matured as individuals and artists through the years. Aside from being able to work together in several projects, the two have also formed a lovely bond off-cam, too!
And when the FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actor got into relationship with actress Isabel Oli, Camille is able to form a close bond with her as they hang out and attend events together, as well as support each other’s endeavors. Who would forget that Camille was also one of her brother’s accomplices when he staged a grand wedding proposal to Isabel in 2014 at a mall in Quezon City?
Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo
Now that they’ve been together for around a decade, we can say that Daniel and Kathryn have indeed already come a long way. Thus, it’s definitely not a surprise that they are already part of each other’s families.
In a Magandang Buhay interview in 2018, we were able to witness her lovely bond with his younger sister Magui, as the latter imparted how the 2 Good 2 Be True leading lady has served as an ate to her and their bunso Carmella.
According to Magui, it was Kath who influenced her to use makeup. But more than that, Kath, who’s the youngest in her own family, shared that she also guides them by having conversations with them about serious matters.
Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo
Their love story may have faced a lot of tremendous challenges ever since they officially became together in 2013, but Sarah and Matteo refused to give up on each other and fight for their love. Luckily, they have his younger sister Giorgia Guidicelli as their number one fan and supporter.
In one of her IG posts in 2020, Giorgia expressed her love for the Popstar Royalty by posting photos of them together on her wedding day, which she captioned: “One week ago today, I gained a real life sister. Welcome to the family, Mrs. Guidicelli!!!!! We love you!!! [sic].”
Kristine Hermosa and Oyo Boy Sotto
From being his father’s leading lady in a movie, Kristine Hermosa went on to become the beloved wife of Oyo Boy Sotto. However, she has not only gained a husband and five adorable kids through their marriage, but the actress has also found an additional sister in Danica Sotto-Pingris.
As they spend a lot of time together, the sisters-in-law have become besties, too, as they go on trips together and even went twinning in one of their escapades. At the same time, Kristine’s sister Kathleen has also become part of the ever-growing Sotto clan as she was spotted in some of their family get-togethers, and even had TikTok videos with Danica!
May we also have lovely relationships with our siblings too, just like these celebrities do!
