Diether Ocampo says he is still friends with ex-girlfriend Kristine Hermosa.
While Diether Ocampo remains a bachelor, many are curious about when he plans on getting married and having a family of his own. His ex-girlfriend Kristine Hermosa is now expecting a baby with her husband Oyo Sotto. During his birthday press conference, Diether expressed his happiness for both Kristine and Oyo. “I’m very happy for her, for both of them. Lalo na ngayong
they’re expecting a baby. Pero magkaiba kami ng piniling direksyon
. She chose to get married and have a family, I choose to be single in the meantime.”
Diether admitted that there are times he would feel a bit envious of Kristine being married and an expectant parent. “Hipokrito naman ako kung sasabihin kong hindi ako naiinggit
. Natural lang na maramdaman ko ‘yun paminsan minsan. Hindi ako naiinggit
in a bad way. Lahat ng nangyayari sa buhay natin may dahilan. Siguro hindi pa lang
time for me.”
Though their relationship didn’t have a happy ending, Diether and Kristine managed to remain friends. The actor shared, “Hindi na mawawala ‘yung
friendship namin. Iba rin ‘yung pinagsamahan namin. Kapatid ko rin ‘yan sa
Star Magic. Hindi rin biro ‘yung pinagdaanan namin. Isa siya sa mga taong pinapahalagahan ko hanggang ngayon. Hindi porke naghiwalay kami, natatapos na ‘yung
friendship. Patuloy pa rin ‘yun.
However, Diether said that he and Kristine don’t communicate as often as before, as he doesn’t want to overstep any boundaries. “Nagkakausap pa kami dati. Pero iba na syempre ‘yung buhay niya ngayon. Ngayon dapat

actor said he believes everything in life has its own time. Maybe for now he is meant to devote his time to work. “Nagiging responsable lang ako. Hindi lahat ng tao nabibigyan ng mga oportunidad na nabibigay sa akin ngayon kaya ayokong palampasin ‘yun.
Diether added that he also dreams of getting married and having children, but for that to happen, he first need to meet the right woman. “We dream of having a family din naman
. If God will allow, hopefully the right person will come. Kapag nangyari ‘yun, ibibigay ko na talaga ‘yung sarili ko nang buong buo
One things that keeps Diether preoccupied at the moment is the upcoming 2nd Diether Ocampo Charity Golf Cup to be held this July 21 at Tagaytay Highlands. In this event that he organized, some of his friends in and out of showbiz will compete in a golf tournament to raise funds for the Knowledge Channel and the Christian-Islam Library in Zamboanga, both of which are dedicated to giving quality education to less fortunate children.
