How Cristine and Ali's relationship started

When we look through real-life sweethearts' Cristine Reyes and Ali Khatibi's respective Instagram accounts (@mrscristinekhatibi and @mralikhatibi), we would see how almost perfect their life is right now. A beautiful daughter, a happy family living a comfortable life, a business, and a humble abode of their own.


But before they have reached such stage, Cristine and Ali admitted that it was not as easy as we thought it is.

The two revealed that at first, their relationship was not easily accepted - at least on Ali's side.


"Actually that was on my part. 'Yung friends ko," Ali explained in their "Magandang Buhay" guesting today, February 20.

"Syempre they knew that I was in a relationship nung time na 'yun. They're saying na it's not right. Hindi maayos, stuff like that. So mostly on my side," he added.

Cristine then explained how hard it was for her that time.

"Hindi ko masabi kung paano ko hinarap basta nahirapan ako. Kasi ang hirap nung bago lang kayo tapos lahat meron ng judgement agad," the actress confessed.

The 28-year-old actress is very grateful to her husband for the strength he showed in keeping their relationship especially when Cristine was in her weakest point.

"Good thing, matibay kami pareho. Kasi kung 'di kami matibay... Ako kasi medyo fragile ako eh. 'Yung sensitive ako. 'Yung ayoko 'yung may ganung drama kasi syempre bago pa lang kayo. Gusto mo lahat okay.

"Tsaka number one na gusto ko, gusto ko okay ako sa pamilya niya tsaka sa friends niya. Eh 'yun pa 'yung hindi. So medyo nahirapan ako nun at ang lungkot ko nun. Pero nabago naman ang lahat," Cristine related.

"We proved them wrong. Everything that they said," Ali proudly added.


After they have overcome the first challenge in their relationship, another one came: Their daughter Amarah.

But Ali stressed that it was planned. They never considered having Amarah as a problem, but as a blessing, really.

"Actually excited ako kasi napag-usapan naman namin eh. She was saying na she wanted to have a baby. When it happened, 'di naman kami nagulat," the MMA fighter affirmed.

Cristine and Ali got married in Balesin January 27 of 2016.

Their daughter Amarah will turn two years old this April.
