Kapuso home-grown talent Ruru Madrid said he is willing to wait for two more years before courting his on-screen partner Gabbi Garcia.
In an interview with the young actor, he denied speculations that they are already a couple. “Hindi pa po. Kapag naging kami na, aaminin ko po agad. Pero matagal-tagal pa po kasi siyempre 16 [years old] pa lang si Gab, tapos ako 17 pa lang po. Hihintayin ko po siyang mag-18,” shared Ruru.
Sought for comment on Ruru’s statement, Gabbi said chuckling: “Talaga? Tignan natin.” In the event that this really happens in the future, will her parents approve of their relationship? “Parang ang deal po namin is siyempre kailangan po focus muna sa career tapos magka-college pa po ako,” she added.
For his part, Ruru said he will do everything to make things work, “Basta legal naman po. Ipapaalam ko po muna sa parents niya kung pwede po.”
Currently, the two young stars are simply enjoying each other’s company during tapings for their primetime show Let The Love Begin. Just recently, Ruru has been added to the cast of family drama series Instadad as Gabbi’s love interest.
How does it feel to be working with Ruru on the set of Instadad? “Siyempre po masaya kasi kasama ko si Ruru at finally nagkaroon ng love interest ‘yung role ko na si Marikit. Kasi ‘di ba nga boyish siya,” shared Gabbi.
Meanwhile, Ruru couldn’t be happier with the way his career is going. “Siyempre po masaya kasi pinangarap ko lang naman po ito, pinangarap ko na magkaroon ng maraming trabaho. Talagang everyday nananalangin ako na sana lalo pa akong bigyan ng trabaho,” he said.
