Most of us aspire for the “the one,” a partner with whom we can exchange sweet nothings, explore the world, and have a long-lasting relationship with. These are just a few relationship goals that we’d love to attain.
Here are 13 couples in the showbiz industry that could provide us with that flicker of hope for a happy ending:
1) Paul Soriano and Toni Gonzaga
In a relationship for seven years before tying the knot, newlyweds Paul and Toni could be the personification of the adage “True Love Waits”. In an interview in The Buzz last February, Paul shared, "It's been seven and a half years and you know she's been a great part of my life, the best blessing I've ever received and you know I want to spend the rest of my life with her. We're engaged, we're engaged. I'm super happy." They were married last June 12.

4) Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia
Billy and Coleen confirmed their relationship last year after the two were linked to each other since 2013. In an interview at the press conference of Pasion de Amor last summer, Coleen expressed her gratitude for Billy's support for her career.
“I’m very thankful that he’s considerate enough to actually think na ayaw na niya dumagdag. Yung iniintindi na lang niya ako on my own, na nahihirapan ako sa mga aspeto na napupuno yung schedule tapos may mga scenes na challenging na ako nahihirapan,” the actress said.
5) Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos
The couple loves spending time in the kitchen. With another child coming, they just prove that their marriage is getting stronger.
6) Zanjoe Marudo and Bea Alonzo
Amid recent speculations that their relationship is on the rocks, Bea said in a press conference, “Mukha ba akong in pain and broken? Hindi, okay naman ako. Okay naman kami and oo meron mga pinagdaanan, lahat naman tayo hindi naman mawawala yan di ba? But yung pinaka-importante dun is kung paano mo i-ha-handle yung sarilig mo pag natapos ang lahat ng ito. So there, we're working it out and masaya kami. Okay naman kami. Happy naman kami. Responsibilidad mo sa sarili mo na maging happy ka.”
7) Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo
Though rarely seen together in public, Matteo and Sarah are very much into each other. It is a feat for popular artists like them to keep some things to themselves. In the actor’s birthday greeting through Instagram, he promised to his girlfriend: "I will do my best to fill your life with sincere limitless JOY."
8) John Lloyd Cruz and Angelica Panganiban
In one of the hugot lines of the movie That Thing Called Tadhana, Angelica—through the character Macy—expressed her attachment to the movie One More Chance and even mentioned John Lloyd, “Tulad nga ng sabi ni John Lloyd, pa’nu ba ‘yun? Kaya tayo iniiwan ng mga taong mahal natin kasi may paparating pa, yung magmamahal sa’tin at magpaparealize sa’tin kung bakit naging mali yung dati. Paparealize rin satin kung pa’no tayo dapat mahalin.”
