Erich Gonzales confirmed in an interview with ABS-CBN that she's currently entertaining a non-showbiz suitor.
The 27-year-old Kapamilya actress shared, "Unang una ay wala naman po tayong itinatago. Ako, single po ako and he's single also." In fact, the two reportedly went on a trip to Japan recently. While Erich did not divulge details of the trip nor documented it, an image of her with friends and her supposed suitor was uncovered on Instagram.
She continued, "I think nag-start 'yan because may nakita silang picture. I went to Japan for my sister's exhibit—painter siya don. And then matagal na tong naka-block off, kasi lagi kong sinasabi walang time and all. But eto, thankful ako sa The Blood Sisters kasi pinayagan nila ako for two days lang and my sister invited him also, so he followed."
Without disclosing his name, Erich revealed to reporter MJ Felipe that the guy she's referring to is the brother of Claudia Barretto's boyfriend Basti Lorenzo. Erich's suitor has been identified as Mateo Lorenzo.
She added, "Siguro, 'pag may time, 'pag alam niya na libre ako ngayong araw na 'to, siya mismo ang gagawa na paraan to see me."
Last month, Erich told ABS-CBN that she is "single but not available" but admitted that she is still "not ready" to commit to a new relationship.
In her interview, she said, "Nag-close na yung chapter na 'yun. Wala, tapos na 'yun talaga. It's been more than a year na. I just want to focus on the good things, the positive things. Never stop learning talaga. Every day I learn something new."
