Many of us admire how Toni Gonzaga and husband Paul Soriano are as a couple, but something tells us you’d love them even more when you find out how it all began for the two.
On her own online talk show “I Feel U” last Sunday, January 24, Toni recalled the first time she knew in her gut that Paul was “the one.”
“Ako kasi picture pa lang, eh. Sa Multiply,” said the “Pinoy Big Brother” host.
She first heard about Paul in 2006 when he had just moved back from the States. “Kauuwi lang niya from the U.S., tapos dito na siya nag-stay sa Philippines. Tapos sinabi sa akin na gusto daw ako ipakilala dito sa direktor.”
“Sabi ko, ‘Anong name?’ Sabi niya, ‘Paul Soriano.’ So sinearch ko sa Multilply, dahil Multiply pa lang noon, wala pang Instagram,” said Toni.
When she finally found photos of him online, Toni revealed that she felt an instant connection to him. “Pagkita ko ng picture, ito naman ‘di ko makakalimutan sinabi ko agad, ‘Ay, ‘yan mapapangasawa ko.’”
Soon after, the “Starting Over Again” star agreed to meet him and it took nine months of courtship before they became an official couple.
On the day she became Paul’s girlfriend, Toni remembered that she came home that night and this time, told her sister Alex Gonzaga that he really is the one.
“Nung day na sinagot ko siya, nung June 12, ito din ang O.A. din ng pagkasabi ko dahil si Alex lagi ako nire-remind, ‘pag balik ko sa kwarto namin, sabi ko, ‘Uy, ano ba ‘yan, siya na mapapangasawa ko.”
And to that, Toni got the most Alex Gonzaga response from her sister: “Si Alex [sinabi], ‘Puro ka ka-OA-yan, kayo pa lang.’ ‘Yun talaga nafi-feel ko, eh.”
Others may not understand what she felt that night and when she first saw a photo of Paul, and Toni couldn’t explain it fully either. All she can say was that it’s just something that she just knew.
“I guess it’s true, you know when you know. Nasa heart, eh. ‘Di mo ma-explain, pero you just know it in your heart, kasi may peace, I guess,” said. Toni.
And let our response be: SANA ALL!
