Gab Valenciano on Isabel Oli: 'This is the most sincere relationship that I've been in'


090111-gab_main.jpgGab Valenciano admitted that he’s been in a relationship with Isabel Oli for two months now. In an interview with Push.com.ph during the press launch of his father Gary Valenciano’s With Love album and TV special, Gab said on record, “I’m not seeing anyone else and she’s also not dating anyone else. I guess you can say we’re pretty much official. Mga two months na.”

Gab further confessed he’s had a crush on the actress-model for years and that they were only introduced to each other months ago. “May mga common friends kami. Dati ko pa siya crush. ‘Love at first billboard’ nga ang tawag ko. I think I was about 17 years old nung makita ko ‘yung billboard niya. Pero a couple of months ago ko lang siya nakilala. She’s not just a pretty face lang pala but also a beautiful person inside.”

Gab shared the qualities he found attractive about Isabel. “Her simplicity caught me. Kapag in person, she’s quiet, hindi artista ang dating. Also when I found out that she’s a Christian like me, that sealed the deal for me. Nalaman ko agad na this is the girl for me.”

He went on to say that he feels something very different about his relationship with the actress compared to the ones he’s had in the past. “I think amongst all the guys she dated or amongst all the girls that I dated, I think we can both say that this is the most sincere and most genuine relationship that I've been in. I'm so excited to go through this adventure kasi alam mo na. Siyempre may times na you fail but you know how to fix yourself up. Hindi na parang dati na bagsak ka lang nang bagsak tapos bahala na, break na kayo. Now let's work this out, if 'yung strength mo ay weakness ko then you will help me. If 'yung weakness mo strength ko, then I'll help you. I admit na nagkamali ako in my past but I’ve decided to make things right with her. I promised her and her family that I will be better.”

Given the current health condition of Isabel’s father, Gab revealed that in the two months that they been a couple, they have mostly spent time at her family’s place. “Her dad is medyo sick so our bonding is more with her family at home. We can’t go out much, wala pa kaming out of town trips. Mostly dinner lang sa bahay nila with her family. I totally understand naman because she needs to spend more time with her dad. I also want to be with her family.”

Gab also said that he has introduced his new girlfriend to his parents, Gary and Angeli Valenciano. “Whenever I feel that the girl I’m with has the potential I see to it that I meet her parents and she meets my parents. Not because I want approval but I believe the meet is very important. I want my parents to see sino ‘yung girl who makes me happy. Ayokong puro kwento na, ‘She’s very nice…blah blah!’ I want my family to see it.”

Isabel and Gab’s ex-girlfriend Rachelle Ann Go are currently both contract stars on another network. Gab said there hasn’t been a chance for the actress and the singer to cross paths yet, but he doesn’t see any problem if it happens. “Isabel is a mature woman. Bale wala na lang if you see an ex. Ganun din ako kapag may nakita akong ex-boyfriend niya. Tapos na ‘yun. What’s more important for me is what we have now. Meron lang talagang mga taong hindi ma-let go ‘yung past.”
