“I’m dating a non-showbiz guy. AFTER TWO YEARS! FINALLY!” Alex Gonzaga exclaims during her interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda.
It’s been two years since her controversial relationship with Kean Cipriano ended and now, finally, the actress is seeing someone new. She puts a label on her status with the unnamed non-showbiz guy (who’s currently a student, mind you), saying, “We’re exclusively dating.”
Alex then dished out on how different her current relationship with this new guy is compared to her previous ones: “Siguro ‘pag right time na may right person para sa’yo, talagang walang ibang makakapagpigil. ‘Yung parang ang ganda ng nangyayari—smooth sailing. Walang hindrance. Walang 'Ay, hindi pwede. Bawal.' Wala. Lahat OK. Lahat ayos.”
The host gave some real talk about luuuurve now that she’s a bit older and more sure of herself. “Minsan pumapasok tayo sa relasyon na parang hindi natin kilala kung sino tayo. Tapos nagaadjust tayo kung ano ‘yung hinahanap ng partner natin. Mas maganda ‘yung kilalanin mo muna ‘yung sarili mo, alamin mo ‘yung worth mo, ‘yung value mo, alamin mo kung ano talaga ‘yung hinahanap mo, kung ano ‘yung kailangan mo sa buhay mo. And ‘pag dumating ‘yung taong para sa’yo talaga, parang wala kang makikitang ibang hindrance, parang ‘Ay, pwede talaga.’”
She gave the one thing she learned from her ate Toni Gonzaga and her #GOALS relationship with director Paul Soriano: “Dapat naipapakita sa’yo ng lalaki kung gaano ka kaimportante at gaano ka niya kamahal—‘Yun ‘yung nakita ko kay direk Paul and sa ate ko.”
So, so sweet. Good for ya, Alex!
