On Tonight with Boy Abunda, Princess of Philippine Television Nadine Lustre recounted what happened when her onscreen and off screen beau James Reid prepared a surprise picnic for her in the middle of Paris. “Surprise po kasi yun, hindi ko po alam kasi… Nakalimutan ko na po yung lugar. Basta nandun kami sa park and sabi lang niya o halika magpipicture tayo. Tapos parang may fountain, yung Medici, yung Medici fountain. And then nagulat po ako Tito Boy, may mga upuan and then may naka-setup may cold cuts, may cheese and then may flowers …” Asked how she felt about James’s surprise, Nadine said, “nakakakilig…”
The two also prefer to use “always” in lieu of “forever.” Nadine said, “forever is medyo gamit na. Di ba? So parang medyo cliché na siya so parang kami naisip lang namin na always is our forever.” Nadine said it was James who wrote the word “always” at the back of their love lock when the two visited Pont des Arts bridge in Paris.
Nadine shared an anecdote about their time at the bridge. “Nakakatawa yan Tito Boy kasi merong tatlong susi. Yung isa tinapon namin. Yung dalawa tinago namin joke lang naman. Sabi niya in case na gusto nating alisin yung lock, itago natin.” Nadine added, “pero Tito Boy di na namin alam kung nasaan ang susi.” By tradition, lovers are supposed to throw away all the keys into the famous Seine River below the bridge.
Asked how sweet James is, Nadine says, “mahilig sa little things Tito Boy e. He’s very very simple which I really like.”
There are those who up to now question the authenticity of her relationship with James. Nadine said, “kung ayaw naman po maniwala, it’s up to them. Basta po kami ni James we know what’s real and we know the truth.”
Nadine also defended James against his supposedly “playboy image” brought about by a recent video, which allegedly show James flirting with a woman. “Hindi naman playboy Tito Boy kasi, well regarding the video, yung nandun naman po sa video, kilala ko naman po yun. (Kung) sino yung nandun sa car.”
Host Boy Abunda also asked, “What was your biggest quarrel in the last two months?” Nadine replied, “wala po.”
The two also didn't spend their 2nd monthsary together because Nadine was taping a scene for their movie This Time. Nadine revealed they have no pet names for each other and still call each other by their names. But she admitted, “minsan (we call each other) love.”
