In a recent interview with PUSH, Vice, who just celebrated their first anniversary with Ion, revealed that he feels blessed to finally come out of hiding.

“It’s liberating, mas masarap kumilos, hindi nakakangawit, wala kang iniisip mas na-eenjoy namin ang buhay,” he shared.

“[Ion is] very happy. I’m very happy. Kasi dati ‘yun ang parang iniinda kong sakit eh. ‘Yung parang hindi naman ako kayang ipagmalaki ng mga lalaking nakakarelasyon ko, minamahal ko,” he added. “Tapos sabi ko ‘yung nararamdaman kong ganun, bakit ko ipaparamdam kay Ion, na hindi ko siya ma-i-out, at hindi ko masabi nang derektahan at masabi [ang meron kami], kasi siya ang nauna eh, siya ‘yung nag-po-post sa Instagram noon pa, eh ako bihira.”

Vice also said that going public with the true status of their relationship is what Ion deserves. “Deserve ni Ion ‘to, kasi mabuti naman siyang tao, so bakit ko naman siya ikahihiya?
