The Philippines’ newest couple Cherry Pie Picache and Edu Manzano are melting the hearts of Filipinos young and old for choosing to pursue their love for one another. But did you know that they had actually dated each other 20 years ago?
In an interview with Edu’s son, Luis Manzano, in a Youtube vlog that was posted last December 27, the couple shared that they had already become an item before which they did their best to keep low-key about.
“Tahimik lang kami no’n (We were quiet about it then). It was almost a year,” Edu explained.
“We were dating almost a year. Like mga (about) two decades ago,” Cherry Pie added. “Hindi niya ako makalimutan (He couldn’t get me off his mind).”
In the many years that followed, the two remained good friends, often running into each other in events. However, Cherry Pie noted how there was always “tension” every time they spoke which was perhaps caused by their feelings for one another that never went away.
“After the 20 years, lagi kaming nanatiling magkaibigan (we remained friends). We never drifted apart. We’d always see each other sa iba’t ibang okasyon and sa iba’t ibang mga gatherings (in various occasions and various gatherings),” Edu shared. “We would always be talking sincerely. We knew that we still like each other.”
“Every time we see each other, there’s tension, in a good way and something different,” she said. “Every time na magkikita kami after no’n, you’d think na, ‘Parang iba pa rin ‘yung tingin niya.’ Pero I’d always dismiss it kasi nga, ‘di ba, charmer siya. (Every time we ran into each other then, you’d think, ‘It feels like he still looks at me differently.’ But I’d always dismiss it because he’s such a charmer),” Cherry Pie said.
Now, it seems that their love story has finally reached its happy ever after!
The couple confirmed their relationship last November 19, 2021.
