Last Monday, March 4, Heart Evangelista created a frenzy on the popular picture-sharing site Instagram when she posted a picture of her and boyfriend Chiz Escudero on her account iamhearte. The photo, with the caption, “I miss you busy bee @saychiz,” received more than 4,000 likes and appears to have been taken during the couple's recent vacation abroad in celebration of Heart's birthday last Valentine's day.
The week before, Heart shared a picture of themselves wearing couple bracelets during an intimate date at a romantic cafe in Quezon City. “Those were love bracelets. We got them from the streets of San Francisco when we were there for my birthday. The other one was something that we got para magka-match kami,” Heart shared during the recent LG Optimus G phone launch held last March 6 in Makati City.
The 28-year-old actress said she has no qualms about sharing moments from her personal life online. What she and Chiz have agreed upon is to not give interviews about their relationship together. “There’s places like Instagram and Twitter kasi. Ako I’m open to sharing my life with my fans, especially the ones that have been there for a long time. so I don’t mind that. But I just don’t do like interviews with him and we talk about our love life you know. I also don’t want to jinx it. I’ve done that many times and it didn’t really do anything good to me. It was always horrible and even harder for the relationship to survive when you’re too open about it. So I really like what’s happening with us right now,” she admitted.
Heart also admitted she is not really into gadgets, but loves taking pictures with her phone. “I’m not really a techie but I like gadgets that are easy to use. I love using the camera on this phone because it’s controlled by voice like when I say, ‘Say cheese!’ so I really love that part (laughs),” she shared as one of LG's celebrity guests.
Although she admitted that she has entertained the idea of settling down, Heart said she would never totally turn her back on showbiz for love, especially now that she is busy with her career and Chiz is on the road campaigning with Team Pnoy. “I don’t think it has to be like that. I think you should be with somebody who will allow you to do what you want to do and won’t force you to stop from doing what you love to do. I can’t really stay that I would stay in showbiz when I get married, but I definitely still want to do what I love to do and that’s acting. So maybe I wouldn’t be as active as I am right now. But I don’t believe in when you marry you do that, you should still be yourself, don’t lose yourself in marriage,” she said.
When it comes to her relationship with Chiz, Heart said she could not ask for anything more. “Oh I’m very content. I’m very happy. Everything is just balanced, you know. Tamang-tama lang siya,” she said.
