Just three months shy of their second anniversary as a couple next year, Michelle Vito said she and boyfriend Enzo Pineda have become closer than ever, and not just because of the ongoing pandemic.
“We would have gotten super close naman either way. Pero siguro mas okay na nandun si Enzo during the pandemic. Siyempre of course hindi naman talaga easy yung pandemic. Iba talaga na you have someone. Of course, iba talaga yung may kasama ka and may loved one ka na aside from your family na nandiyan para sa ‘yo,” she told PUSH in an exclusive interview during Cathy Valencia’s birthday and thanksgiving party.
Last month during a beach trip to La Union, netizens started speculating pregnancy rumors because of the way Michelle posed during their couple photo. The 24-year-old actress denied the rumors and said she and Enzo are really not the type to post everything about their relationship on social media.
“Sabi ko nga nung last time nung na-issue ako, ‘Bakit pag single ang sasabihin sa ‘yo nag-gain ka ng weight, pero kapag may boyfriend ka na, ang sasabihin sa ‘yo buntis agad.’ I think yun yung difference na masyado nilang ina-assume agad na porke may boyfriend ganyan. Pero okay naman kasi hindi naman kami yung sobrang ma-post or sobrang ma-public. Parang the usual na tao lang na kapag gusto lang namin mag-post. Kasi ganun kami eh. Yung usual na tao nagpo-post naman talaga. Pero yung relationship namin hindi naman super public talaga na lahat ng kilos namin pinapakita namin sa mga tao,” she admitted.
After first meeting Enzo as co-stars on the set of the 2019 ABS-CBN series Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit, Michelle revealed why she chose him out of all her suitors.
“Siya yung consistent talaga na mag-effort, ganyan so yun yung nag-matter talaga. Kasi parang sa umpisa naman talaga meron naman talaga sa tao kung ano yung type natin, ganyan. May standards tayo kung ano ba ang gusto natin. But sa huli kasi ang mag-ma-matter talaga is yung ugali, yung personality nung tao and yung love talaga,” she said.
Michelle said that they are so close now that even gift-giving is easy when it comes to Enzo. “Sinasabi niya kung anong gusto niya eh. Siya yung open na sinasabi niya kung ano gusto niya,” she added.
