Enchong Dee says he thinks Erich Gonzales made a good impression on his lola.
Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales were obviously excited at the premiere of I Do, where they have their first lead roles in a movie, last September 28. The young couple, who are also paired together in the primetime hit Magkaribal, are rumored to be off-screen sweethearts as well. During the premiere, Push.com witnessed Enchong introduce his U.S.-based lola to his pretty co-star. "Galing kasi sa States lola ko and bihira lang siya andito. She'rsquo;s the mom of my dad. Kasama niya manuod yung mga friends niya na naiwan niya dito sa Philippines," he said. Enchong says only his grandmother and her friends were able to attend the premiere because his family was still taking care of his mother. "My mom just came from surgery and she'rsquo;s still in recovery. But I'rsquo;m going to invite them to the block screening kasi dun mas konti ang tao, mas safer. Dun kami magkakasama. I'rsquo;m sure my lola is also going to watch it again with the family," he added.
Enchong admitted that although the rest of the family has already met Erich, his lola only knew about her from what she saw on TV, so he saw the opportunity to finally introduce them to each other. But he admitted he didn'rsquo;t really plan it when he introduced them at their seats in the balcony section before the premiere started. "It'rsquo;s been a busy night. Everyone was just passing by and saying their hi-hellos. Kasi ang bibilis ng pangyayari so nung andito lang kami and everyone was saying congratulations and thank yous so when my lola and her friends came to greet us, I used the opportunity to introduce them na rin." Enchong said he thinks Erich made a good first impression even though she was unprepared for the introduction. "Hindi niya alam. Hindi niya ini-expect na may ganun kasi kanina wala, blanko na rin ung isip ko eh," he said, laughing.
Even with all the kissing scenes he shares with Erich in the movie, Enchong said he doesn'rsquo;t feel shy knowing his lola was part of the audience that night. "Hindi naman nakakahiya. Pinagdaanan rin naman nila yan," he laughed.
