Heaven Peralejo is glowing with love.
The “Pinoy Big Brother” sweetheart-turned-actress opened up about her relationship with boyfriend Jimuel Pacquiao to the Momshies of “Magandang Buhay” this morning, May 21, and revealed that Manny Pacquiao’s eldest son actually pursued her for a year. Yup, isang taon silang nagligawan.
She said, “A year. One year po siya nanligaw. Kasi gusto ko pong makita ‘yung effort. Naghihintay din po ako noon ng sign, hinihintay ko po na ready ako, ayaw ko naman pong pumasok sa first relationship ko na nagmamadali.”
That whole year, they managed to keep their budding romance under wraps. According to Heaven, they made a decision to get to know each other privately rather early.
“Tinago po namin for a while, kahit habang nanliligaw po, habang hindi pa sure, sabi ko, atin na lang muna. Privacy muna,” she explained. “Ayoko din naman na ang daming masasabi ng tao, at hindi ko din naman po maiiwasan din ‘yun. Mas gusto kong i-cherish nalang ‘yung kung anong meron kami at hindi siya [under] the public eye.”
