After admitting in a previous interview that she had no second thoughts after accepting the role of Piolo Pascual and Pepe Herrera’s leading lady in the new sweetcom My Papa Pi, Pia Wurtzbach said that she did not have to ask permission from her boyfriend Jeremy Jauncey before accepting the role.

“Actually hindi ako nagpaalam. pinaalam ko sa kanya na gagawin ko ito. Pero kidding aside, kilala na niya si papa Pi kasi siyempre kinukuwento ko sa kanya yung mga pag-so-showbiz ko before nung nagsisimula ako sa ABS-CBN, ganyan. Tapos nagtatanong rin siya kung sino yung mga artista sa Pilipinas. So nakuwento ko na sa kanya si papa Pi,” she admitted.

Known as a jetsetting couple even during the pandemic, Pia revealed that their shared love for travel has helped make their relationship work even if they are based in different countries for now.

“Kasi si Jeremy mahilig mag-travel so naging perk na lang na kasama niya ako tapos na-e-enjoy ko din yung pag-ta-travel dahil sa trabaho niya. Pero naka-base na din kasi siya sa Abu Dhabi ngayon kaya madalas kami magkita. Pero bumabalik pa din ako dito sa Pilipinas kasi nandito yung work ko. Nandito yung mga shoots, nandito yung mga endorsements tuloy-tuloy pa rin naman. Tapos meron din ako bahay so I think I split my time between the two and kaya naman. Sa akin naman time management lang yan. Basta alam ko in advance, I can make myself available for work,” she explained.

The couple, who celebrated their anniversary last month, have been happy with their long-distance relationship. During the My Papa Pi mediacon, Pia shared her top tips on making an LDR work.

“I think kailangan may good and open communication lalo na sa akin [because] we don’t see each other all the time. Kasi parang in a way long distance relationship kami. Buti it’s important na lagi kaming nag-uusap, honest kayo, and meron kayong mga plano para meron kayong something to look forward to. Para sa akin kasi like ngayon hindi kami magkasama for Valentine’s day but it can still be special in a way because we make it work because we have good communication,” she said.
