After going public with their relationship in the latter part of 2021, Edu Manzano and Cherry Pie Picache finally sat down for their first interview as a couple. And it was hosted by none other than Edu’s son Luis Manzano!
Edu and Cherry Pie candidly opened up about how their romance started in Luis’ vlog which premiered on his YouTube channel last December 27.
Before the interview began, Luis warmly remarked that his “Tita Pie” is one of the “kindest people in the industry,” having worked with her in the TV series “Kampanerang Kuba.”
When he asked about the current state of their hearts, Edu gushed that he is full of happiness while Cherry Pie lovingly called Edu her “answered prayer.”
“PieDu,” as nicknamed by the couple’s fans, revealed that their love story actually started 20 years ago. They dated for almost a year before choosing to stay as friends instead. Even as they parted ways, the special bond remained throughout the years.
“Hindi niya ako makalimutan,” Cherry Pie smilingly quipped.
Edu explained, “Lagi kaming nanatiling magkaibigan. We never drifted apart. We’d always see each other sa iba’t ibang okasyon. We would always be talking, sincerely ha. We knew that we still liked each other.”
“Every time we’d see each other, you know that there’s something different,” admitted Cherry Pie. “Pero me, I always tell him nga, ‘pag maghihiwalay na, parang iba. Pero I would always dismiss it because your dad has always been a charmer.”
Fate was fortunately on the couple’s side as they got the chance to rekindle their romance while working together in the rom-com series “Marry Me, Marry You.” In fact, they shared the same dressing room on set!
The rest, as they say, is history, and now the happy couple give each other heart eyes like there’s no one else in the room.
