In the past 18 years that he’s been in the industry, My Papa Pi star Joross Gamboa has astounded us with his versatility as an actor, which he’s able to showcase through the television shows and movies that he starred in. But in real life, more than his innate sense of humor, talent, and good looks, he’s also admired for being a doting husband to his wife Katz Saga-Gamboa and father to his beloved family.
They’d been dating for five years before tying the knot on November 29, 2014 through a Christian ceremony attended by their families and close friends, which included Joross’ celebrity friends Jhong Hilario, Sandara Park, Melissa Ricks, Adrian Alandy, and Ketchup Eusebio.
Last year, they marked their seventh wedding anniversary and 13 years of togetherness, with Joross divulging through his post that the secret behind their strong and long-lasting marriage is “Keeping God in the Center of our Relationship! ‘Marriage is NOT a contract, it is a Covenant with GOD’.”
In his Tonight With Boy Abunda interview in 2017, he conveyed to the King of Talk Boy Abunda that despite the challenges in their marriage life, he and his wife chose to remain faithful to one another. Katz stayed and prayed with him as Joross opted to be honest with her than denying the obvious truth.
He reiterated his faithfulness as a husband in his return to the evening talk show in 2019. The 37-year-old comedian-actor told Tito Boy, “Kailangan mas maging faithful ka kay God. Kapag mas mahal mo ang Diyos, iba ‘yong [pakiramdam]. ‘Yon ang gusto ko sa asawa ko at gusto rin ng asawa ko sa akin,” when asked if he is 100% faithful.
They also appeared in an episode of Magandang Buhay in 2017, wherein they divulged the reasons why they’re so in love with one another. According to Katz, her husband’s sense of humor and being a certified family man have greatly helped in maintaining their relationship.
With regards to his promise for his lovey wife, he related that he would love God more as he believes that it would reflect on his attitude towards her and their family, and then jokingly added that he would remit all his income to them. He’s also thankful to her for sticking by him in spite of everything they went through in the early years of their marriage and owed to her why their family has remained strong through it all.
They’ve been each other’s best-est friend, ultimate partner, and favorite buddy in everything that they do – may it be travelling, going on various shindigs, or raising their two beloved sons Jace Kyler and John Kody.
