While her well-loved character Rita Macatangay-Alvarez in Init Sa Magdamag is torn between two dashing men who both perpetually love her, which makes a lot of ladies out there probably envy her, the same is arguably felt towards actress Yam Concepcion in real life as well, since she’s been in a solid and happy relationship with her longtime boyfriend Miguel CuUnjieng for six years now.
However, their romance is not ordinary as unlike other couples, they have been in a long-distance relationship – Yam is here in the Philippines with her family and has been very busy with her continuously flourishing acting career, while Miguel has been based in New York City, USA, wherein he works as a corporate executive.
In her Magandang Buhay guesting last year, she confessed that even she is amazed with how they’re able to make it in the past years despite only seeing each other seldom and talking through video call most of the time. But just like other couples, misunderstandings are also inevitable to them, yet they’re able to talk those out and fix those immediately.
“Ako rin nga nasu-surprise kung paano nga ba namin nagagawa. Pero, I trust him so much. Parang nabibigyan niya ako ng security na talagang I can trust him,” the 32-year-old seasoned actress disclosed when asked how they’re able to make it possible.
In the “Legit or Lie” segment of her appearance on Tonight With Boy Abunda, Yam addressed the rumors regarding her engagement with Miguel by promising the King of Talk that she will visit him again on the show and bring champagne to celebrate it with him and everyone on the set. But when quizzed if she will accept her proposal, she admitted that she’s definitely going to say “yes”.
However, little did we know that during that interview in January 2020, Yam was already engaged then to her boyfriend, until she revealed it in her latest Instagram post. She uploaded a photo of them together at a snow-capped forest with paper cranes surrounding them, and Miguel was seen kneeling on one knee, while Yam was smiling at him. She captioned it: “A thousand cranes YES (ring emoji) @mrcuu 12.31.18 11:59pm #747 (sic).”
It has now raked in more than 100,000 likes and thousands of comments from both her fans and friends and colleagues in the industry who expressed their warm wishes to her as a bride-to-be.
Going through her Instagram account, we could spot a lot of photos and video clips of Yam with her Miguel, wherein she shares their trips and bonding moments every time they are together here and abroad. At present, she has been enjoying her vacation in New York City with Miguel and her furbaby Tiny, based on her recent posts.
