After Diego Loyzaga confirmed his romantic relationship with Kapamilya actress Barbie Imperial, the latter validated his new year revelation.
Previously, on her own Instagram page, Imperial shared her “favorite photo” with Loyzaga.
While saying that she never thought they would be a couple.
“Totally unexpected to fall for someone I thought I’d be just friends with forever but I’m really happy to have found both love & friendship with this one,” she said.
Imperial went on to thank Loyzaga for making her “happy and feel loved.”
“Thank you for everything that you do to make me feel the love I deserve. So thankful for you, thank God for you,” she said.
While labeling herself as “cheesy” because of her post, Imperial pleaded for understanding saying “pagbigyan ngayon lang ulit naging ganito.”
And as they out their relationship in public, the couple is now fond of bonding together.
Recently, Barbie and Diego are spotted at Ara Mina’s engagement party.
They are also accompanied by Diego’s mom Teresa Loyzaga and Sunshine Cruz.
In their photos, it seems like Barbie is so close to Diego’s mother, Teresa.
Apparently, Teresa Loyzaga is supportive of her son’s relationship with Barbie.
In the Instagram post of her son confirming his relationship with Imperial, Teresa left the comment: “Happy looks so good on both of you!”
In the comment section of Imperial’s post, Teresa shared her advice to the actress and her son.
“Love each other. Respect each other. Protect each other. Speak kind words to each other. Speak kind words to each other. Be happy. You both deserve it,” she wrote.
The couple first sparked rumors of a romance in November, when Diego left a comment on Imperial’s bikini photo on Instagram. They were then spotted on a date at a museum in Antipolo in December.
