Melai Cantiveros is certain that John Lloyd Cruz is in love with her “twinny” Angelica Panganiban.
In an interview with the Your Face Sounds Familiar performer, Melai, who is a close friend of Angelica’s, was asked to comment about the relationship of her friend with the actor.
Angelica made headlines for admitting that she has been sending signs to John Lloyd about wanting to be engaged.
However, the actor seemed to have other priorities aside from marriage as he revealed in a recent report.
The actor’s statement started speculations that John Lloyd seems to have no plans of marrying the That Thing Called Tadhana actress. This assumption was however refuted by Melai.
“Ngayon kasi 'di kami nag-ha-hang out, nag-hang out lang kami nung movie niya, nagpunta ako dun. Dati napag-uusapan, ever since, gusto na talaga naman na niya, pero siguro tuma-timing lang ‘yung relationship.”
Melai even revealed that the couple are indeed talking about settling down saying that, "Kagaya ni John Lloyd, si Baby Boy, alam naman natin na career talaga ang priority niya. Sa kanila, napag-uusapan naman, 'di naman puwedeng ikaw ang babae, ikaw ang mag-ano, 'di ba? Siyempre, dapat lalake.”
She said she believes that John Lloyd, whom she calls “baby boy,” also wants to tie the knot eventually.
“Gustung-gusto naman niya talaga ‘yun, si Baby Boy, gustong-gusto din ‘yun. Kaya lang may perfect timing lang siguro na hinihintay, kaya mabibigla na lang tayo,” she said.
According to Melai the two are “sobrang in love ang mga 'yan.”
The actress-comedienne went as far as comparing Angelica’s previous relationship with hunky actor Derek Ramsay.
"Ibang-iba talaga ang love life niya kay Derek [Ramsay]. Itong kay John Lloyd, serious talaga sila pareho. Sobrang love talaga siya ni John Lloyd, ayoko na lang magsabi ng iba,” she revealed. "Friend na kami ni Derek, basta ang masasabi ko sobrang love siya [Angelica] ni John Lloyd."
