It’s Gerald Anderson’s 30th birthday, and his girlfriend, actress Bea Alonzo, turned to Insta to infect us with all the kilig in their relationship. With her super sweet birthday message, she posted a nine-year-old throwback picture of the two of them that got us sighing awww.
If we revisit their dating timeline, we’ll recall that the Bea and Gerald started dating in 2010, but broke up soon after that. Many assumed it was just a fleeting flirtation. Then, they rekindled the chemistry and connection in 2016 when they filmed How To Be Yours. They were an undefined item for a while. Then eventually, they turned unapologetically official, proudly gracing red carpets and events as a true-to-life pair. In 2018, however, their relationship got rocky when Bea announced she was single again.
Bea captioned her throwback picture with a kilig recollection: “Back when I fell in love with you for the first time. Amazing how time just flies.” It’s been nine years since her heart first skipped a beat for her now-boyfriend. Like Bea, we still fondly recall the beginnings of their relationship, their breakup number one, their eventual reunion, their breakup number two, buzz and pics about another reunion, official appearances (again) as a couple, and now this. Could this really be it? Could they really be each other’s forever?
Noting that their relationship has been far from smooth-sailing, Bea couldn’t help but get senti about their relationship and how far they’ve come: “Can’t help but get a little sentimental especially because you’re spending your 30th bday in another continent in a different picture,” she says. Then, she finishes off that heartfelt message with lines that got us tied in kilig knots: “You are a wonderful man. Happy birthday, babe. You are my great love story.” After all that they’ve been through, theirs is definitely a love story for the books. We wonder what their next chapter will look like.
