Rayver Cruz and his longtime “crush” Janine Gutierrez would not really divulge much about their relationship although they would show on their social media accounts that they have something special with each other.
Their first encounter started about four years ago. It happened at the float of horror film “Buy Now, Die Later” during the Metro Manila Film Festival 2015 Parade of Stars. The attraction seemed mutual and had since been rumored to be dating. After one year, Rayver was spotted attending Janine’s family gatherings, such as the opening of the restaurant of Janine’s mother Lotlot de Leon. When Rayver attended the Star Magic Ball in 2017 with Janine as his date, people have started to intensely speculate about their special relationship.
There have been a lot of times where they were seen travelling together. But Rayver cleared in interviews that during the courtship stage, they would not really travel on their own. He shared he would always join Janine’s family trips abroad. But now that their relationship has gotten to the next level, most of the time, they would travel together. One of their most memorable trips abroad was surely their tour of Japan, where they looked adorable and affectionate in Tokyo Disneyland.
Another memorable out of the country trip was during Janine’s 30th birthday when they celebrated it in the city of love, Paris. It was during this celebration in which Janine also attended the Paris Fashion Week. If you’ve been closely monitoring their Instagram stories during this time, you would have noticed how they enjoyed their stay in the city, strolling around every popular tourist spot. We also envied how they expressed their love more with each other during their Paris stay. We would see Rayver commenting on the stunning Instagram photos of Janine. Moreover, he would always support her with her career.
Janine, on the other hand, shared some kilig tidbits about her romance with Rayver. In an interview on Magandang Buhay, Janine described her relationship with Rayver as “masaya at madali lang”. Janine revealed those qualities were always mentioned to her by her momshie Lotlot, as what she should look for in a relationship. And she said fortunately, she found those in her romance with Rayver.
She also revealed that when she met Rayver, she said she still had no plans to have a boyfriend. As such, she said she did not hold back in showing her true self to him, including her not so pleasant moods or hang-ups, which Janine said he openly accepted and loved wholeheartedly.
We will always wish for a happy and healthy relationship between Rayver and Janine!
Janine, now a Kapamilya artist, will soon star in “Marry Me, Marry You” on the Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel 11.
