Pinoy Big Brother Otso host Toni Gonzaga and director Paul Soriano have been so inspiring as a couple with their true love for one another, from the beginning of their relationship in 2008 up to the present.
In the fifth year of their relationship in 2013, Paul shared how he wooed Toni.
“When I was courting Toni, I was courting the whole family. They’re like a package. Going to their house, listening to the rules of the parents, medyo strikto sila… pero I don’t argue, I just listen,” Paul said at that time in an interview on the now-defunct showbiz talk show The Buzz.
It was a struggle, he admitted, but he always chose to respect Toni and her family.
Given that they have been together for five years at the time of Paul’s interview, he was asked what was stopping them from getting married. Paul stated that Toni wasn’t ready at that time and stressed he was willing to wait.
Then, about two years later, the perfect time finally came for Paul. Right after Toni’s birthday in January 2015, Paul asked Toni’s hand in marriage and got her sweet yes with her entire family present.
“He proved to me that true love waits,” Toni said in a subsequent The Buzz interview, which she and Paul did together for the first time as an engaged couple.
They got married in June that same year.
And before they celebrated their first wedding anniversary, Toni announced that she was pregnant with their first baby. She then gave birth to Severino Elliot or Seve in September 2016.
Now, Toni and Paul are loving, doting parents to their two-year-old bundle of joy as they continue to show great love for one another as a married couple.
