Erich clarifies engagement rumors
MANILA – Actress Erich Gonzales finally clarified earlier reports that she is already engaged to her non-showbiz boyfriend of two years.
In an interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Gonzales said the ring which news articles are referring to isn’t an engagement ring.
“Birthday gift po 'yun. Dapat pag-engagement ring, alam niya 'yun, dapat mas bongga,” she joked.
Gonzales, however, admitted that she is also hoping to end up with her boyfriend in the future.
“Sana po. Sino ba naman ang may gusto na iba-iba 'yung magiging boyfriend mo, magiging kasama mo? So I’m praying po. Siyempre when I said yes to him, hindi naman masasabi 'yun agad, pero hanggang ngayon, more than two years na po kami and going strong po kami. Okay na okay po kami,” she shared.
Asked what made her think that he’s already the right one for her, the actress said: “Hindi ko alam. Nung una ayaw ko sa kanya. Sinabi ko naman 'yun sa kanya dahil parang ang yabang ng dating, naka-branded tapos may sports car. Tapos biglang padala ng pagkain, akala niya siguro madadala niya ako food. Tapos isang araw gumising na lang ako na okay din pala. Pero matagal kami naging magkaibigan.”
The “Juan dela Cruz” actress said she is truly blessed to have a partner who understands her demanding showbiz schedule.
“Alam niya rin naman na marami pa akong gustong gawin sa buhay ko. I’m very thankful dahil supportive siya lahat ng ginagawa ko and he knows na priority ko talaga 'yung work ko,” she said.
Meanwhile, Gonzales said she is happy that her boyfriend also values privacy as much as she does.
“Special dahil he’s a very private person. When I say private, meron po kasing mga non-showbiz na gusto ng showbiz exposure, but siya po hindi siya ganon,” she said.
At this point, Gonzales said she is very happy with her personal life and career that she cannot ask for anything more.
