Kapamilya Snaps: How real-life celebrity couples mark their anniversaries

With how complicated and hectic the world of show business is, many believe that it’s indeed impossible to have genuine and long-lasting relationships. However, there are celebrities who are able to prove that those can still happen, just like the nine couples featured in this episode of Kapamilya Snaps.

As we celebrate the “love month,” let’s look back how their respective love stories began, as well as how they commemorated their most recent anniversaries!

From making us kilig in the teleseryes and blockbuster films they’ve starred in since 2011, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla indeed delighted everyone when they finally confirmed their relationship in 2018. Despite being among the top loveteams and A-list celebrities in the local entertainment scene, KathNiel has managed to keep their relationship low-key. Thus, we’re looking forward to see how the stars of the upcoming series 2 Good 2 Be True will mark their 10th anniversary on May.

Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil made headlines in 2019 when they finally admitted their relationship in the late-night talk show Gandang Gabi Vice – thanks to a toy lie detector apparatus. Since then, the Make It With You stars have been more open about their romance as they post photos of their moments together, such as celebrating each other’s birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and their anniversary. And for their 7th year last year, LizQuen went on a romantic dinner date just like what they did in the previous years.

Their stint in It’s Showtime may not be that long, but couple Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio were able to withstand the test of time. And as they marked their fifth anniversary last November 2021, LoiNie went on a romantic trip to Siargao! This year, we’re excited to see them back on-screen together as they top-bill the upcoming series “Love In 40 Days.”

After incessant speculations, Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson first confirmed their relationship in September 2020 by posting a photo and a video of them together in their respective Instagram accounts. In March 2021, the proud parents of Baby Jude kept their second anniversary celebration simple with some more sweet photos and video, with Viral Scandal actor captioning his post “2 amazing years with you my love. I love you more than the sun loves the sky.”

Michelle Vito may not be into her boyfie Enzo Pineda at first, but they are now on their second year as a couple this February! They grew close while working together in the soap opera Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit and only revealed their relationship in August 2020. Since then, they’ve been blessing us with their adorable photos together, including their simple celebration of their first anniversary last year, wherein he brought him a huge bouquet of flowers when he visited her at the Bagong Umaga lock-in taping.

The same goes for Kylie Versoza who also didn’t like Jake Cuenca at first sight when they initially worked together in the remake of the “Ang Panday” movie in 2017. However, starring together in the afternoon drama Precious Hearts Romances Presents Los Bastardos made them closer and romance eventually bloomed between them. The sexy couple has been officially together for two years now, and has been celebrating their anniversary and the Viral Scandal star’s birthday every year together with their family and friends in the past two years.

From their simple banters in It’s Showtime, Vice Ganda and Ion Perez went on to delight their avid shippers when they finally confirmed their relationship in October 2019, live on the noontime program after Team Vice was hailed as the winner for that year’s Magpasikat. And as they marked their third anniversary last October 2021, the Unkabogable Star dedicated a sweet Instagram post for his beau and wrote in the caption, “3 years of not giving a f*ck about other people’s thoughts and judgements. 3 years of just being unapologetically in love and happy. I love you Noy! And i love winning in life with you!”

With Piolo Pascual to thank for playing cupid for them during the ABS-CBN Christmas special after-party a few years ago, Robi Domingo and girlfriend Maiqui Pineda are now on their third year as a couple! Last year, the Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10 host made us kilig with his sweet message for his girlfriend on IG, saying, “For all the dreams, laughs, and conversations we’ve had (and we’re going to have), I really thank you. I love you.”

After going through a lot of heartaches, Angelica Panganiban has finally found genuine happiness and peace in the arms of boyfriend Gregg Homan. The “The Goodbye Girl” star surprised everyone when she commenced 2021 by posting a photo of her kissing the then-mystery guy, who she eventually proudly introduced a month later. They celebrated their first anniversary in July 2021, which she marked by posting a sweet photo of them together and captioned it, “I don’t ever want to be madly in love ever again. I want to be healthy in love, sanely in love, peacefully in love. Happy first year my love.”

Love may be scary to some, but these celebrity couples prove that it’s definitely okay to fall in love and take risk because maybe the person meant for us is right in front of us or just lurking around the corner. May you be in love and happy as these couples this Valentine’s month, Kapamilya!
