LOOK: Vice Ganda and Ion Perez in tears after exchanging ‘I Love You’s’ on It’s Showtime

Rumored couple Vice Ganda and Ion Perez suddenly found themselves in tears during the live episode of It’s Showtime last Friday, September 20.

Vhong Navarro and Anne Curtis teased Ion for sounding angry when he was speaking to them and asked him to give an example of how he says “I love you” to Vice Ganda.

After doing so, Vice said “I love you” back.

However, the hosts and the audience were surprised to see that Ion had started tearing up, seemingly moved by the exchange. As a result, Vice also started getting emotional.

Bakit kayo nag-iiyakan?” Anne asked. “Naiiyak na rin ako!”

Vhong then pulled them all together for a group hug.

While Vice was busy wiping away his tears, Vhong asked Ion, “Bakit ka naiiyak?”

Ang saya ‘pag nakikita siyang masaya,” replied Ion. “Ang sarap makita na masaya ‘yung taong mahal mo.”

The two have yet to confirm that they are officially a couple, but they have been caught multiple times being sweet to one another on- and off-camera and spending time together alone. Only Ion has spoken publicly about the status of their relationship which he claims is only of friendship.

Despite this, Vice couldn’t help but express his happiness over the candid moment.

“God blessed my broken heart. And now it’s a happy heart,” he said.
