MANILA – Billy Crawford has publicly admitted for the first time on Thursday’s episode of “It’s Showtime” that Coleen Garcia is officially his girlfriend. The admission comes seven months after the actor said he was courting his noontime show co-host.
A few days after the show, on Sunday, Crawford and Garcia were interviewed on “The Buzz” during which they talked about how their relationship status evolved.
“Sinundo ko pa siya sa airport kasi kakarating lang niya galing States. Sabi niya, ‘Can you be my girlfriend?’ Sabi ko, ‘Okay’, pero nakailang tanong siya muna,” Garcia said.
“I just felt like asking again,” Crawford added.
Garcia and Crawford revealed that they have always been transparent with each other about their feelings.
“Kasi it was like we were already there anyway and all that was missing was really the label. Pero ‘yung feelings naman, it’s been there naman,” Garcia said.
Garcia acknowledged that she considers Crawford her best friend, and also that his relationship with her family factored in to her decision to become his girlfriend.
“I think that’s what really matters to me also, that’s what I was waiting for. I really want him to get along with my family. Pero the fact na pati ‘yung pamilya namin, they get along, it’s really a big bonus,” she added.
Crawford, on the other hand said: “She knows exactly what I feel for her. I really also just want to be the best man I can be, learn from my mistakes and be there for her.”
