Claudine Barretto confessed that she is still affected by the death of her former boyfriend Rico Yan.
"Mahal ko pa rin siya. Hindi nawawala 'yon. I think hindi nawawala 'yung (love) kapag namatay na 'yung tao. Kahit hindi na kami, nandoon pa rin," she shared in the vlog of her friend Janelle Jamer.
The actress added that she thinks that the love towards the other person just grows bigger once the person is gone. "Lalo pa yatang lumalabas kung ano ang nararamdaman mo towards the person kapag nawala na 'yung tao," she said.
Claudine also opened up about her regrets. "Yes, mayroon akong pagsisisi na sana mas matagal ko siyang nakasama, sana nandoon ako nung nangyari 'yung dapat sana ay hindi nangyari."
Rico passed away in March 2002 because of acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis.
Before his passing, Rico starred in several projects with Claudine.
They headlined hit series Mula Sa Puso and Saan Ka Man Naroroon. They also starred in the blockbuster movies Dahil Mahal Na Mahal Kita and Got 2 Believe.
Meanwhile, Claudine also shared in the vlog that she is now ready to be in a new romance.
"Matagal na. Oo naman kaya lang wala pa lang talagang dumarating so hindi ko rin kinukulit si God. Kapag dumating eh darating," she stated.
