Celebrity married couples who were best friends-turned-lovers

How does it feel like to marry your best friend? That's what Toni Gonzaga discussed with her special guests on the newest episode of "I Feel U"!

On Sunday, October 25, Yeng Constantino and husband Yan Asuncion, as well as newlyweds KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde, opened up about the joys of finding love in their best friend.

Yeng and Yan, who have been married for five years now, appreciate each other more each day.

Yan shared that being quarantined with his wife this pandemic made him realize how much he values her. He said, "Me getting to know her more, knowing about her life, 'yung childhood niya, all the stories. Sobrang adventure lang talaga being with her. Sentimental akong tao eh. When I look back, sobrang nai-in love talaga ako sa kanya all the more, kasi we're building a history eh. And 'yung history na 'yun, 'yun ang foundation namin eh. 'Pag nakikita ko 'yung value nun, 'yung importance nun, talagang, 'Bakit hindi ako mai-in love dito sa babae na 'to?"

Yan then hugged Yeng and told her, "Sobrang love na love kita talaga kita."

Yeng described Yan as a man of a few words, so it made her happy to hear such lovely thoughts from him.

She replied, "Blessed din ako. Marami kaming pinagdadaanan ate (Toni), na normal, pinagdadaanan ng lahat ng mga may asawa, pero one thing na very grateful ako kay God na nilagay siya sa buhay ko, is meron akong best friend 24/7 na handa ako intindihin at kinikilala ako."

KZ and TJ's intimate wedding ceremony last August 18 is truly one for the books.

KZ shared that because their parents couldn't be with them during this lockdown, they held a digital "pamamanhikan"! And when the wedding came, their families were with them through video conference.

"'Yung wedding, naka-Zoom lang din po sila. Nasa screen lang sila, tapos nag-damit din sila, nag-make up sila," she shared.

The couple also talked about how Martin Nievera walked KZ down the aisle, how TJ felt when KZ was already walking towards him in the ceremony, and saying their vows under a 300-year-old mango tree.

"Very magical. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam," said TJ.

The two also began as friends, and they say it's their friendship that makes their relationship strong.

KZ said, "Kunwari may mga nagawa akong mali, hindi ako nagdadalawang-isip na mag-share sa kanya, kasi alam kong kilala niya ako and he knows na I'm better than my mistakes."
