“A tiptoe for a kiss
Finally I found my bliss
My best friend, my love
The best is yet to be."
Just when many of us are still dreaming of being in a relationship with our favorite Asianovela heartthrobs, Arci Muñoz finally found her “oppa” in her newest flame, Chinese businessman Anthony Ng.
We got a first glimpse of him when she uploaded a fairytale-like glamorous photo of them on Instagram during the 30th anniversary celebration of Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) in October 2017. Since then, her account has been filled with their romantic snaps together.
It was only during her guesting in Magandang Buhay that the actress-singer imparted a nugget of their love story.
Theirs wasn’t a typical love-at-first sight tale since they were both dating other people during those times. They met through a mutual friend three years ago and he turned out to become one of her closest buddies since then.
But as time went by, their feelings for each other grew fonder as he became her most constant confidant through the ups and downs of her life.
Aside from being her shoulder to cry on, Anton’s words of wisdom uplifted her spirit during the most depressing experiences she went through.
What the 28-year-old actress admire about their romance is that their differences are what made their bond even more cohesive. While she’s the outgoing type, which can be rooted on her being a celebrity, her businessman beau is low-key and prefers to shy away from the public eye, such as in social media.
She revealed that his attitude gradually turns her into a “tita” and it’s easy for her to bully him because of his gentleness.
Although ‘opposites do attract’ works for them, she relayed that they also have common denominators, like their fervor for automobiles and their knack on the corniest jokes. So cute!
Rumors about their affair started to spark when Arci revealed during her appearance in Tonight with Boy Abunda middle of last year that she’s back dating again. Months later, the young businessman was spotted in a slew of her IG stories.
Arci’s Instagram post featuring the two of them together got us wondering if they already got engaged, given that Arci called her boyfriend Anton as her “husband” on her caption!
Arci wrote: “On the second thought who needs luck when ya got answered prayer?! Yikes!! #cheesy Happy new year ta ya husband!! #gongheifatchoi #happychinesenewyear”
On that same post mentioned above, sexy comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto commented “congratulations” to this lovely couple.
Will wedding bells ring soon for them? Either way, we wish you everlasting love and happiness, Arci and Anton!
