Vlogger Wil Dasovich arrived back in the Philippines last Tuesday, February 20, after six months in the US and with him was his girlfriend and Cosplay Queen Alodia Gosiengfiao. After being greeted by fans and supporters at the airport, the two took some time to speak to ABS-CBN News’ Anjo Bagaoisan about their relationship.
Dubbed “Wilodia,” the two revealed that they first met as rivals at the 2017 Influence Asia Awards.
“Magkalaban kami,” Alodia said.
“Nakakatuwa kasi we were both nominated for YouTuber of the Year,” the former “Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7” housemate added. He later bagged that award and two others, but also won Alodia’s friendship.
“Within a month after the moment we met, we could both feel that it was something kakaiba,” he continued. “It just developed over time.”
Wil and Alodia grew even closer after he was diagnosed with colon cancer. After he flew to San Francisco to be with his family and get treatment, they revealed that Alodia visited him almost every two weeks if her schedule permitted it.
“Kasi alam ko naman from the start it’s something special, so parang 'di ko na iniisip 'yung iba,” she shared. “Kaya kong i-drop lahat, pero siyempre I still have responsibilities na kailangan kong gawin.”
Wil said that their bond has grown stronger after everything they went through together, noting that Alodia was never negative about his condition.
“It’s like lahat ng mga problema ko, they’re alleviated when she comes, kasi she’s such a breath of fresh air,” he said about his lady love. “Laging positibo.”
They officially announced their relationship in a vlog posted by Wil on his YouTube channel last February 14. Apparently, the two had been in a relationship for some months but never felt the need to publicly announce it as they thought it was apparent from their videos. Nonetheless, they decided to formally come out with it on the day of hearts.
