Mariel Rodriguez shared the story of how the courtship between her and her now husband, action star Robin Padilla really started!

Today, June 27, on "Magandang Buhay," Mariel was made to watch a clip from Robin's previous interview with the morning show.
To recall, Mariel used to be part of noontime variety show "Wowowee" in ABS-CBN, where Robin was slated to be a guest host for two weeks. During Robin's stay in that program, he would receive tokens of appreciation from Mariel.
Robin shared, "Dalawang linggo akong may pagkain, may love letter. 'Yung love letter galing kay Mariel, 'yung pagkain, galing kay Pokwang. Siyempre dalawang taon [akong] walang ganun. Kahit na wala sa isip mo na ma-in love, nai-in love ka, hanggang sa 'yung biru-biruan [nagiging totoo na]."
Robin shared that during his stint in the show, he would serenade Mariel. But during the last serenade he did, he felt different.
"Hanggang sa huling harana, nung paalis na ako nung last day, parang totoo [na]. Hindi na yata ito biruan kasi may nararamdaman na ako," he said.
After watching Robin's video clip, Mariel then shared her side of the story.
"It was the birthday of Tita Cory Vidanes," Mariel shared, saying that ABS-CBN executive Linggit Tan was also there. "It was Tita Linggit Tan [who asked me], 'May boyfriend ka ba? Gusto ka ni Robin'. Sinabi niya sa akin kaagad!"
At that time, Mariel admitted that she got "kilig". She also said that she did send letters to Robin, but she did not put her name on it.
"Nung time na 'yun, ang alam namin, two weeks lang si Robin [sa show], and we really wanted him to stay. So it is true, everyday I wrote him a letter. 'Please stay. Have a wonderful day.'"
She continued, "Hanggang sa na-realize ko, sandali, parang kinikilig ako."

The "Magandang Buhay" hosts then asked Mariel what made her say yes to Robin in spite of their whirlwind romance.
Mariel answered, "I really fell in love. Kasi what Robin did, first he asked me kung meron daw bang kailangan kausapin, magulang ganyan."
Robin also laid down his cards to Mariel, saying that he has children with his previous relationship, and that Mindanao is very important to him.
Mariel accepted all of that. And in turn, she only has one condition: "Kailangan ako lang. 'Pag hindi ako lang, out ako. And so far, wala pa naman siyang ginagawa. Mag-e-eight years na kami."
The Kapamilya host also expressed her confidence to her husband, saying, "I trust you 100%. We have trust, we have respect, and we have love. That's why mag-e-eight years na kami."
