Derek Ramsay says he is happy being with Angelica Panganiban.
Despite all the intrigues that have struck their relationship throughout the years, Derek Ramsay admitted that his relationship with Angelica Panganiban has only gotten stronger after every ordeal. “I think I do have a perfect relationship. Because I’m very happy. Do we have problems? Yes. Do we fight? Yes. But am I happy? Yes I am,” he shared during the No Other Woman
press conference held last September 21 at the Dolphy Theater inside the ABS-CBN compound.
The Fil-Brit hunk added that he hopes that their relationship is already for keeps even without marriage. “Well sana habang buhay kami.
But I can’t promise any of that. As I said, masayang-masaya ako
. Five years na kami
. Up and down pero
always moving forward,” he added.
Derek, who plays the role of Ram Escaler in the upcoming Star Cinema-Viva Films drama No Other Woman
, said that his family has already welcomed Angel (Angelica’s nickname) into their hearts, despite reports that they disapproved of the relationship from the start. “This is the deepest relationship I’ve had. I really can’t compare. My family is a loving family. In the beginning ‘di ba ang daming nagsasabing hindi siya tanggap?
That wasn’t true. My mom and my dad and my family wanted to get to know her. And now that they do, she’s part of the family. Kaya sa
Christmas sama-sama kami
,” he shared.
Derek even admitted that he was surprised when he found out his mom had lent Angelica the jewelry that she wore to the recent Star Magic Ball. “My mom’s weakness is jewelry and I’ve never seen anything that beautiful. Natutuwa ako
that she trusted Angel with all her stuff. I didn’t even know about it. Hindi ko alam. Pagdating ko sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Uy, nagpaparinig ka ba na ito gusto mo
for Christmas kasi hindi ko kaya yan
(laughs),’ Sabi niya hindi pinahiram ito sa akin ng nanay mo. Pero binalik na niya yun
,” he said.
The 31-year-old actor also shared why he thinks Angelica has a perfect combination of good qualities. “Eh yung kasama ko ngayon nasa gitna, palaban din yun at
wife kaya dun na ako
,” he said in jest. Derek also added that at this point in their relationship, he and Angelica don’t easily become jealous of other people. “I can’t [deny] na ‘pag nakakakita ako ng magandang babae
I don’t appreciate them but I know that hanggang tingin lang yun
, no touch, keep my hands to myself. That’s where I make the decision where I will get in trouble or where I’m safe. Kung may babaeng lumalandi sa akin
, I just smile it off. Hindi mo naman puwedeng bastusin kasi babae
. It’s the same way with Angel. ‘Pag may naglalanding lalaki sa kanya, hindi ko aawayin ang mga lalake. Hindi ko siya pipigilan. Gusto ko
, she can handle it. That makes me feel better,” he shared.
