A year since they first admitted they were dating after getting to know each other on the set of director Richard Somes’s action film Alpha Kid One, Sue Ramirez and Javi Benitez exchanged sweet anniversary messages with each other last month on social media.
Last October 9, Sue celebrated Javi’s 27th birthday with him in Victorias City, Negros Occidental where he recently announced his plans to run for public office next year in the mayoral elections in the province. Sue gave her full vote of confidence in her boyfriend during the official announcement and writing in a previous post, “You are going to be a good leader and I'm sure of that. We're just here supporting you all the way.”
For Javi’s birthday last October 9, Sue shared a photo of them enjoying a meal in the middle of the beach. She wrote, “Pangakong iingatan at mamahalin ka sa abot ng aking makakaya. Maligayang kaarawan, Mahal ko! ”
In a succeeding post, Sue shared a photo of Javi napping on her favorite stuffed toy while wearing her knitted accessories. She wrote, “U promised me that I can post this on your birthday, so here it is!!!! You make me so happy, Jav. (You & RJ) Thank you for listening and watching BTS with me all the time. Love you so much it hurts!!!
Look, @coraandcecilia !!! @javibenitezzz looks sooo goooood!!! ”
On his own Instagram account, Javi shared that as part of his birthday celebration this year, he chose to do a surgical and medical mission in his hometown in coordination with their local city health office. Sue was also there to show support for the event.
“Bilang pag pasalamat sa akon espesyal nga kaadlawan, nag hiwat kami sang Medical and Surgical Mission diri sa Victorias kaupod ang NikkiCares, Foundation Inc. nga gina pangunahan sang akon iloy nga si Nikki Benitez, Program Director MaryAnn Dino, City of Victorias and officials, and City Health Office.
