Lucy Torres-Gomez revealed a kilig story about an old but beautiful photo of her taken 25 years ago. The photo shows an 18-year-old Lucy during the shoot of her ~*iconic*~ Lux Shampoo commercial in the '90s alongside her real-life crush and now-husband Richard Gomez.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, the 43-year-old politician wrote:

"I never knew this photo existed until I became his wife. This was taken in 1993, in Lake Caliraya where we shot the second storyboard of our Lux Shampoo commercial. Here, I am all of 18 years old, in a long white dress, and totally in love with him (well, since I was 12, actually). The latter, of course, no one knew except for my sister Caren who was with me as my chaperone.

"Anyway, this was Day 2 of our shoot, the morning was hot and the wind was cool, the lake sparkled like a bed of diamonds under the golden sunlight. I remember seeking shade under some tree during the break, and people from the production house and agency were taking behind-the-scenes shots. And somewhere far away from the crowd, there was Richardtall, dark, handsome, and perfect, in khaki shorts and a shirt, his professional camera with him. I looked towards him, and seeing that his camera was pointed somewhere in my direction I smiled for him, never mind if I did not know for sure if it was I that he saw in those [lenses].

"Years later, in 1998, I married him to live happily ever after, and as a very new bride organizing our things in our home, I saw this photograph in a drawer. He says he has kept it all along, and that I look beautiful. And if indeed I do, my love, it is only because I was looking at you."

Here's a look at some of Lucy and Richard's popular commercials back in the day. Who would have thought this two would end up together?
