Host Gretchen Ho shared how she met her boyfriend, host Robi Domingo, via a video interview on the Thursday episode of Magandang Buhay, October 6.
According to Gretchen, she first saw Robi at a soiree when she was only in third year high school. “So, ako galing sa ICA, siya galing sa Ateneo. Tapos naalala ko pa no’n, late siya pumasok ‘dun sa soiree room namin tapos may dala-dala siyang baseball bag tapos may dala-dalang barbeque. So siya ‘yung may dalang pagkain para sa gabing ‘yun,” she recalled.
Gretchen admitted getting instantly smitten by Robi then. “Tapos sabi ko, ‘Uy, athlete.’ ‘Uy, siya lang ‘yung parang type ko dito.’ Pero crush lang naman.
“So, apparently, ‘nung nililigawan na niya ako, ‘dun ko lang din nalaman na naging crush din pala niya ako ‘nung time na ‘yun kasi ako lang daw ‘yung mukhang Hapon ‘dun sa room. So, ‘yun talaga ‘yung unang pagkikita namin,” she added.
However, it was during their college days that they became friends. Both of them studied at the Ateneo de Manila University. “Siguro kasi, pare-pareho ‘yung circles na iniikutan namin kaya ayun, ‘dun kami nagkakilala,” she said.
Giving a message to her boyfriend of almost four years, Gretchen expressed how very proud she is of Robi. She said, “Keep working hard and just always know that no matter what happens to us, basta’t magkasama tayo eh masaya tayo. And, always know that lahat kami, nasa likod mo lang.”
