Since he is married to a Filipina, Brian was proud to share that he now knows a lot about Filipino food, including pancit, adobo, and longganisa.

After his concert in Cebu, Brian posted an Instagram post for their fifth anniversary, saying, “Baby, five years ago today, we began this journey not knowing where love would lead us; but hindsight being 20/20, I’m so glad you let me into your life so you could show me what I should have been waiting for all my life. There was no life before you and I’m more in love with you everyday. So happy 5th anniversary of our love and I promise you we’ve only just begun.”
