MANILA, Philippines - Angelica Panganiban certainly lives by the motto "happiness is best when shared" that's why she has finally revealed how long she and John Lloyd Cruz have been officially together: five months.
"Siyempre hindi na 'ko nagpakipot. Bakit pa ko magpapakipot? Alam ko namang gusto ko siya," she said on "Kris TV."
One of the best things about Lloydy, according to Angelica, is that he exerts effort to reach out to those dear to her, including her grandmother who has dementia. And in the fourth anniversary episode of her gag show "Banana Split Extra Scoop" last October, Angelica recalled that Lloydy even brought food and flowers for the whole gang including their director Bobot Mortiz.
"Mahal niya lahat ng mahal ko. Okay siyang makisama," she said.
Angelica also speaks highly of Lloydy to her US-based biological father, Mark Charlson. In one of her Instagram posts a few weeks ago, the Kapamilya actress described John Lloyd to Mark as "best actor of his generation."
"I'm trying my best to be as good as him. (But thats not gonna happen) I am his biggest fan ever since. I just want to be enough, compared to my idol. There's just too much pressure..." she added.
In spite of being two of the busiest stars of ABS-CBN, making time for each other has never been an issue for Angelica and Lloydy.
And if they fight, it's just the petty kind.
"'Yung away namin, pikunan... Kasi mahilig 'yun mang-amoy ng kili-kili. Eh siyempre naman minsan 'di ba 'yung tama na dahil naiinis na ko," she said.
From sweet gestures such as cooking for Angelica, to loving her for who she is - even without makeup on, she said --- it looks like the 26-year-old award-winning actress has found a keeper in Lloydy.
"'Yung ganda, 'pag tanda mo kukulubot din 'yung balat mo 'di ba? Pero kung ano 'yung meron ka, 'yung relationship niyo, kung ano 'yung nagustuhan niyo sa isa't-isa, 'yung ugali niya, 'yung ugali mo, 'yun 'yung magpapatibay sa inyo forever," she said.
