It has been more than a year since Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia tied the knot in a romantic wedding in Balesin. Life has been amazing for ‘The Crawfords’ since then. In a TWBA interview, Billy shares that he and Coleen managed to maintain the fire and excitement that existed since day one. “Kung paano kami noong nagliligawan pa lang, ganoon pa rin kami ngayon,” Billy says. Mr. and Mrs. Crawford still love spoiling each other with gifts and constant date nights. It also helps that Coleen is an intelligent woman and despite the age difference, Billy learns a lot from his beautiful wife. More so, Billy describes Coleen as submissive.
Coleen was Billy’s source of help and support in his weight loss journey, which he clarifies as simply a personal preference and not due to an illness. “I’m not sick. I’m not an addict,” Billy asserts. The international star once weighed 230 lbs which he thought didn’t quite look attractive on the television screen. So, he opted to go on a KETO diet for more than a year. He already lost 11 lbs after just four days of the program and had cut down on sugar for six months; hence, the shrink in body size. Right now, Billy is at 156 lbs, pretty much an ideal weight for him.
Also part of Billy’s lifestyle change is giving up alcohol and smoking. The actor recalls moments when he would spend the night drinking a whole bottle of alcohol by himself and carrying out the effects the next day. Then, the realization of wanting to have a family of his own pushed Billy to let go of his vices. His father’s deteriorating health and the role of God in his life also changed his perspective. The Your Moment judge is now one year free from alcohol and cigarettes. The journey was not easy but Billy is grateful that Coleen has been supportive and patient all throughout the process.
