After Kakai Bautista surprised Ahron Villena on his birthday last March 14, the actor thanked Kakai on his Instagram. He posted a photo of them together and a long message saying he is grateful for having a best friend like her and that he loves her as a best friend.
“Hi Ms. Bautista. I just wanna say thank you for the birthday surprise you did and thank you for bringing my family and my close friends. I really appreciate what you did and I was really surprised that night,” he wrote.
“I'm really happy to have you as my friend/best friend kasi andiyan ka palagi for me. Pag may problema ako andiyan ka para makinig sakin. Alam kong madaming taong mali ang interpretation sa atin. Minsan ako masama, minsan ikaw. Basta ang mahalaga alam nating bestfriends tayo. Yun ang importante,” he stressed.
“Thank you for everything. Mahal kita alam mo yan bilang kaibgan mo at bilang best friend mo. Lagi mo tandaan na andito lang ako for you. Let’s just enjoy whatever we have now and be happy,” he ended.
Ahron’s followers had mixed reactions on his message for Kakai. Some were sad that they’re just best friends and some were angry at him because they were concerned about Kakai, they said that he just led her hopes up.
Ahron and Kakai are romantically linked to each other despite Ahron saying during Always Be My Maybe’s press conference that they are just enjoying each other’s company.
Kakai came to his defense and made a separate post on her Instagram. She posted a photo of them together and in the caption she told Ahron that what’s important is that they understand each other.
“Maraming tao ang nagsasalita pero wala naman talagang alam. Maraming taong nag aassume lang, nagtatanim ng kung ano anong idea sa mga utak nila tungkol sa atin. I hate it when People put pressure on people's relationships even if they don't know how it works. Pero ang alam ko lang, Totoo kung ano mang meron tayo. Maganda ang nabuo nating friendship, Masaya kung anong meron tayo! Dahil masarap maging best friend mo.
“Alam kong maraming hindi makakaintindi pero ang importante nagkakaintindihan tayo. Ang mag best friends lang ang hindi nagbebreak. haha. Di ba nga?! Mahal kita. Wag kang ano. At di ko rin alam kung baket napaka-drama mo ngayong araw na ito,” the Dental Diva wrote.
