As former child stars, Nash Aguas and Mika dela Cruz’ closeness began when they worked together on kiddie gag show Goin’ Bulilit.
Now that the secret’s out, Nash Aguas happily shared how his love story with girlfriend Mika dela Cruz started through a series of Instagram posts. Nash and Mika were both child stars and have worked together in the kid show Goin’ Bulilit and in the 2007 movie Tiyanaks.
In the first photo, Nash recalled the time when they both did a production number in the now defunct noontime show Wowowee in 2007 and he was already trying to get the attention of Mika since he already had a crush on her.
He then recalled their Goin’ Bulilit cruise trip where he was trying to convince Mika to pose for a photo together.
“Inaagaw ko noon sa GB Cruise yung backpack mo tapos ako magdadala kasi parang may hollow blocks sa bigat kung magimpake si tita. Pero tinatarayan mo ako,” he wrote.
“Nagpapicture ako sa ’yo noon sa Forbidden City sa GB China tapos takang taka ka. Kasi gusto ko gayahin natin yung pose ni Jayden Smith at nung partner nya sa Karate Kid. Tinatarayan mo pa din ako,” he added.
Nash then shared that when he went to the US in 2012, their communication stopped and he never thought that they’d be close again.
“Nawalan ng communication. Pagbalik ko, awkward na kasi di na kami bata. Ang dami din nangyari. Lumipat siya ng ibang station tapos nag-move on na kami sa kanya-kanya naming buhay,” he said.
Around December 2016, he admitted that he was broken-hearted that time and his friend Igiboy Flores, who was also one of his friends from Goin’ Bulilit, can attest to their love story.
“Ito yung mga panahon na sobrang down ako. Durog yung confidence ko. Durog yung pagkatao ko. Lagi kaming magkasama ni [Igiboy] tapos iyakan lang kami ng iyakan HAHA!”
“Tapos August 2017, parang magic na nakasalubong namin ni mommy, siya at si tita sa Trinoma. Tapos dumating sila @nikkibagaporo @falcofretzie @dori_cel... Tapos ayun. Sa bandang huli, siya din pala ang bubuo sa akin.”
Mika also continued on her Instagram by sharing her side of the story. The young actress said that they knew each other even before joining Goin’ Bulilit and they eventually became friends. However, her elder brother caught her saying ‘ILY’ (I love you) through text, so she started acting boyish around Nash.
“Nahuli kami ng kuya ko na nag ILY sa text... (ANG AAGA LUMANDI!!) kaya naman natakot ako at ginawan ako ng kontrata ng mga kapatid ko na bawal akong mag-boyfriend hanggang mag-18 ako,” she shared.
Mika said that when they went out together, their ‘cool moms’ were also present.
“Halos lahat ng masasayang memories nung bata ako kami ang magkasama. Magkaibigan kami pero sobrang magkaaway din,” she added.
“Pero umabot din kami sa point na life happened. akala namin talagang di na kami magkikita. pero sa mga pinagdaanan naming dalawa individually, nag-mature kami,” she posted.
Their fans were kilig with the story and hoped the two stars really end up together in the future.
