Maja Salvador and Rambo Nunez have been making us swoon with their sweet posts and travel photos since they went IG official in February. The couple got back together after nine years, which was surprising given Maja’s rule against getting back together with exes.
On Tonight With Boy Abunda, Maja recalled that they were only together for three months in 2010. “Siyempre ‘pag bagets ka, may mga kailangan kang unahin, so kailangan mong i-sacrifice muna ang love.”
This year, when she posted the Valentine’s Day flowers from a mystery sender, her mom immediately guessed that it was Rambo who sent them. “Noong naghiwalay kami nine years ago, si Rambo pumunta kay Mama, nakiusap kung puwede akong kausapin. Pero si Mama, ang revelation niya, tinago niya. Sabi niya kay Rambo, ‘Si Maja ‘pag nagdesisyon, nakapagdesisyon na talaga ‘yan.’ In-explain niya na ako ang breadwinner and all. Sabi niya, ‘Anak, kung kayo talaga, kayo talaga.’”
So what made Maja change her mind? “Siguro kulang ang three months. Sabi ko nga, baka kaya ‘di rin nag-work ang mga past relationships ko before ay dahil iba ang na-feel ko for three months. Love talaga niya ako, at hindi lang siya ang may love para sa akin, buong family niya. Iba ‘yon.”
It began with random encounters last year. When Maja was looking for a basketball court in BGC for her visiting relatives, it just so happened that the gym she found was also where Rambo worked out. He approached her and asked if she still had the same number. Apparently, he slid into her DMs, but she didn’t see it because she didn’t follow him on Instagram.
She asked her assistant to give him her number—which was apparently a secret code that meant she didn’t want to give her number. Rambo was supposed to get her assistant’s number instead, but her assistant gave Maja’s real number! When Rambo messaged Maja, her assistant told her, “Uy, magkaka-love life ka na!”
That was in August last year. “Randam niya na hindi engaging ang reply ko. Kasi nga may rule ako na walang balikan.” It was in December when they started texting more often, and in January when they went out presumably as friends. “Pero ramdam mo na nandoon ang attraction. Ramdam mo na mayroon. Parang, what if hindi nag-break before?” Aww!
Since they got back together, Maja’s been repeatedly asked about the possibility of getting engaged to Rambo. If he proposes to her, will she say yes? The Killer Bride lead star said, “Parang sobrang special kasi. Hindi naman ako madamot about my love life pero ang mga tanong na ganyan, sana masagot ko ng sa kanya na lang.”
She cheekily added, “Tsaka alam na niya, paano ba ‘yon? Hindi na siya ma-e-excite kung ano man. Wala ng thrill sa kanya. Baka 'pag nagplano siya, hindi siya maiyak.” LOL!
