Many of us didn't know that Kathryn Bernardo actually played cupid for her showbiz friends Khalil Ramos and Gabbi Garcia.
For the first time since they officially got together, the celebrity couple talked about how they first met. In a vlog Gabbi posted last September 15, they revealed that they were introduced by Kathryn during Julia Barretto's 18th birthday party back in 2015.
“At that time, 'yung relationship namin ni Kath, hindi kami like now. We’re much closer now. Pero out of nowhere, I asked her (Kathryn) who you were,” Khalil recalled.
“Tapos parang naramdaman niya yata kaagad na parang I’m crushing on you or I like you. Sabi niya agad, ‘Si ano 'yan, si Gabbi. Papakilala kita, papakilala kita. Halika, halika, papakilala kita,” he continued.
Meanwhile, Gabbi said that Khalil approached her while they were on the dance floor.
“Sumayaw pa kami sa dance floor ni Kath. Suddenly, someone from Star Magic pulls her and said she has an interview so I was alone. Hindi ko na alam, bigla ka na lang lumapit sa akin," she shared.
She continued, “After the small talk, I went looking for my friends. He went with me, he helped me to look for them. And when I saw sila na, you were just there. You were just following me the whole night."
The two admitted that they lost touch after that night, and only had the chance to reconnect in 2017. They started dating soon after.
Khalil and Gabbi then thanked their fellow "Nguya Squad" member for paving way for them to meet.
"Thank you Kath, we love you. And we miss you if you’re watching,” Khalil said.
