After finally confirming to the public that he’s dating Ellen Adarna, Derek Ramsay has opened up and spoken in detail for the first time about how their relationship came to be.
In an interview with Mega Magazine that was published on Monday, March 1, the 44-year-old actor revealed that he had actually gone on a blind date with Ellen prior to the viral dinner party that subsequently fueled romance rumors between them. It was during that blind date that they were spotted and approached by Ruffa Gutierrez who, after noting that they were all neighbors, led Derek to host that dinner at his house.

“She met my dad,” Ramsay reminisced. “My dad was seated right beside her. Most women would have been, you know, prim and proper. But she was herself. And that’s what made the evening really, really wonderful.”
“It was just so easy. And yeah, we had a wonderful evening. And that’s when I said, ‘Oh no! Meron akong nararamdaman! Patay! (I’m feeling something! Darn it!)’,” he continued. “I tried to put it out. I tried to put it out. But she’s just so fun to be around. And it was just fun. Every day, it’s just even more fun. There’s no boring, dull moment.”
He goes on to describe his feelings for Ellen as a “chemical reaction,” something he was “super blindsided” by.
“I’m not afraid to let my feelings go right away because before baka hindi, baka hindi, baka hindi, kalma ka lang (maybe it won’t be her, maybe it won’t work out, just calm down). That chemical reaction I told you, it’s like the first time I’ve felt it! And it’s like, WOW! What is this?” he gushed.

“I think she’s the one. And I say it’s gonna happen quick,” he admits. “Seriously. Like no joke. Sometimes you need to live a crazy life. I’ve always been living a safe life, and now, parang (it’s like) holy sh*t! I don’t know what’s coming. I don’t know what’s happening…”
“I’ve had so many relationships, you know? But there’s nothing like this talaga (really). Like we were up all night just talking about it. Two Alphas. We’re both f***ing Alphas!”
When asked if Derek has plans to marry Ellen, he confessed that if he doesn’t follow through with this relationship, he’ll “regret it.”
“It’s just strange how all of this happened. It came out of nowhere! She’s from Cebu. I’m from here. She becomes my neighbor. She’s walked past my house a few times, because she goes out for walks with her son. And then an opportunity was given for us to meet. We didn’t waste time, I guess. People, around us knew it would happen. Kami, in denial pa kami (Us, we were still in denial). Now ito na (here it is), and I’m not scared. I’m not worried,” he ended.
