Actress Isabel Oli and boyfriend John Prats
MANILA – Isabel Oli admitted she already had her eyes on John Prats since 1999 when the actor used to star in the ABS-CBN youth-oriented show “G-Mik.”
Appearing on “Banana Split” for the segment "Ihaw Na" on Monday, Oli confessed that she had a crush on Prats even before she entered show business.
“Dati pa, nasa Cebu pa ako. College pa ako noon gusto ko na talaga siya. ‘G-Mik’ yata siya nun. Kasi I’m older eh. Wala na siyang braces,” she shared.
Oli and Prats have been a couple for over a year now and Oli believes destiny played a role in their relationship.
“Masaya siyang kasama tapos mabait and sweet. 'Yun ang mga hindi nakikita ng mga tao kasi ang tingin nila sa kanya mayabang. Pero hindi talaga, not at all,” she said.
Oli said she intends to stay happy with actor and just not dwell on negative things.
“Ang secret ko [kaya ako blooming] kasi si John. In love lang, positive and happy,” she said.
In their past interviews, Oli and Prats were generous enough to open up about speculations that they are getting ready to exchange "I dos" within the year.
Oli, for her part, said she is now ready to settle down with Prats.
"Ako, whenever I enter a relationship, gusto ko ay ganoon na. Serious talaga ako sa relationships so sana, sana talaga. May mga kwentuhan, may mga plano, pero walang date," she said.
As for Prats, he simply said: "Basta sobrang enjoy ako. Wala na akong hihilingin pa.”
