We’ve been seeing Angel Aquino’s timeless beauty since the late 90s as she showed her versatility and brilliance as an actress in various shows and movies she starred in. She had also graced lifestyle shows as a very eloquent host, which brought her strings of recognitions and nominations from different award-giving bodies. And now, we see her as the defiant, courageous, and intellectual lady general of the Philippine National Police Diana Olegario on the hit primetime cop series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Aside from her formidable achievements as an artist, we are also mesmerized by her youthful glow, not to mention she’s already 44 years old and just looks like an older sister to her pretty twenty-something daughters Iana and Thea. Thus, there’s no wonder why a dashing man like her current beau won’t be captivated by her goddess-like splendor.
It was the King of Talk Boy Abunda’s inquisitiveness which pushed Angel to spill the beans regarding her newest relationship. During her guesting in the late night talkshow Tonight With Boy Abunda on August 2016, the host recalled a certain photo he saw in her Instagram account captioned “Taken 5December15. TheThe stranger became some kind of a wonderful surprise,” which raised questions about the status of her love life then.
Shocked and giggling, she confirmed that she has indeed been in a relationship with a Persian guy named Farzad, an engineer based in Qatar, whom she met in Boracay on December 5, 2015.
“He took a selfie of us. And that was the day I met him. That was in Boracay and then we walked to the farthest end of the [beach],” the award-winning actress-host recounted.
She imparted that they became friends first, then it levelled up to a continuously blooming romance.
A quick glance through their IG feeds, it can be assumed that they’ve been dating since early last year and they’re really happy either travelling together or with their friends in various places such as Baguio, Bacolod, and El Nido, Palawan. But there were also moments that they’re having fun driving around and having dinner dates. Moreover, they also watched Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams Concert in Taiwan and Farzad was Angel’s escort when she attended the Gawad Tanglaw Awarding Ceremony in April 2016.
Although differing timezones and thousands of miles take them apart, her azizam (Persian term for darling and what she calls him in social media posts) never fail to show his sweetness, just like sending her his love through a bouquet of pink roses with a note saying, “Dear Fereshte (most prevalent Persian feminine given name meaning “angel”), I hope this makes your day brighter and puts a smile on your gorgeous face.”
Rooting for your forever, Angel and Farzad!
