Nikki Gil did not appear annoyed at all when asked about the recent issue that her relationship with boyfriend Billy Crawford is “boring.” Nikki related, “Ang kuwento niya (Billy) sa akin, may nag-comment daw na parang ang boring ng relationship [naming].” She did not deny that the comment hit a nerve in Billy, but he later on realized that it does not matter to him what others think about their relationship.
“Siguro sa sinasabi n’ya sa tingin ng tao very boring kami. Kailan ba naman kami huling napag-usapan [ng media]? Bukod sa wala naman talaga kaming malaking problema talaga kapag may minor tampuhan, ‘di namin inilalabas, ‘di na namin pinalalaki. Kami lang naman ang nasa relationship hindi ibang tao,” Nikki explained.
When directly asked if she thinks their relationship needs to have some excitement, the singer-actress answered, “Sa paningin ng tao, in terms of the showbiz standard of what an interesting relationship might be like [maybe yes], but ‘yun na nga eh, mas gusto ko naman na boring kami pero alam mong sa altar ang patutunguhan namin kesa sa maingay kami pero after ilang buwan, maghihiwalay na rin kami. Save yourself the heartache, puso mo ‘yan, kailangan pinangangalagaan mo.
When prodded further to explain her aforementioned statement on marriage, Nikki specified, “Any girl dreams of that na tapos na [ako] sa pag-aaral, nagawa na ang obligasyon sa pamilya. ‘Yun naman talaga ang susunod na step. Pero sa ngayon hindi pa. ‘Pag pinasok mo ‘yan kailangan handa ka. Hindi lang dahil nadala ka ng emosyon mo. Kailangan handa siya emotionally, physically, financially.”
To the question if she sees Billy as her future husband, she quickly replied, “Ay, oo, oo, at pinaghahandaan na. Nag-iipon na talaga ako for myself, nag-iipon na siya. Ini-invest niya ang earnings niya sa properties. Hindi naman pang habang buhay ‘to (showbiz).” She however clarified that they don’t have a joint account. “Joint hearts lang kami,” Nikki joked.
Since she admitted that they are already preparing for their future wedding, Nikki was asked if their engagement is happening anytime soon. “Malayo, malayo pa ‘yan,” was all she said.
