He may be one of those “Pambansang Best Friends” as he usually plays the sidekick or barkada of the lead characters in the teleseryes and movies he appeared in, such as in Ngayon At Kailanman, but actor Joe Vargas is the one and only leading man in the life of his beloved fiancée Bianca Yanga.
In the past years, their avid followers on Instagram have witnessed how their love for each other has continuously blooms. But for sure, nobody knew how their love story began six years ago. And they finally divulged it on their first-ever vlog entry uploaded on October 2020.
According to them, they met on the set of the 2015 afternoon soap opera Doble Kara, wherein both of them were among the supporting actors. Although Joe was smitten by her at first sight, they didn’t hit off immediately as she refused to give him her name and mobile number, as well as refused his offer to take her home.
But being classmates in one of the workshops they both attended, more so being partners in one of their activities, brought them closer and they became friends. That friendship and closeness got deeper and they eventually became a couple.
Unbeknown to them, their paths had already crossed many years ago as their mutual friend Yen Santos introduced them at the party of actor Patrick Sugui in 2010, where she entrusted Bianca to him to keep her company as she mingled with her other friends in the event. However, both of them have forgotten that memory. This made them realize that they’re indeed fated to love one another and the universe blessed him with his dream girl!
Being together for almost six years, the couple conveyed their advice to people out there who are still searching or waiting for their “the one”.
“Kung ako sa inyo mga kaibigan, makikita n’yo ang soulmate n’yo. Soulmate ba tawag d’yan, destiny ba tawag d’yan, whatever it is, hintayin n’yo lang,” Joe said, confessing how imperfect their relationship is since they also got into huge and small fights a number of times, to the point that their friends had to meddle in order to fix them. “Kapag alam mong kailangan mo sa buhay ‘yong tao, hindi mo siya maaalis kahit nakakainis na siya.”
Bianca echoed this by reminding everyone to not rush things because, sometimes, love arrives on the time that you least expect it and in the person you didn’t imagine it with – just like what happened to her.
Aside from being partners in life, Joe and Bianca are also business partners! In 2017, the Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash 2010 alumnus entered in a food venture as they established “Longga Joe,” which features the homemade longganisa manufactured by Bianca’s family in Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija.
As seen in their respective Instagram accounts, Joe and Bianca always make sure to find time for each other. From just having a simple hangout together, to being in the most beautiful places around the world, these two lovebirds certainly know how to express their love for each other! Besides, Joe and Bianca frequently have double or group dates with their “Nguya Squad,” which includes the King and Queen of Hearts Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo.
And last January, they delighted their loved ones and ardent followers when he finally popped the question to her through an intimate wedding proposal.
