Gerald Anderson, however, pointed out that he sees Julia as “The One” for him
“Do you plan this year or the near future to propose?”
This was the question that former Manila Mayor Isko Moreno asked Gerald Anderson in a recent interview on Isko’s June 30, 2023’s “Iskovery Night” vlog.
In the video, the 34-year-old actor opened up about his relationship with actress Julia Barretto and what makes their relationship work.
To answer the question, Gerald assured the new “Eat Bulaga!” host that popping the question is included in his five-year plan.
“Sa five-year plan, siyempre, kasama ‘yan diyan. Hindi lang ako magsasabi [kung kailan], basta kasama ‘yan,” was how he put it.
Detailing how “happy” and “at ease” it’s been, Gerald shared that he didn’t even feel that their romance has been going strong for three years now.
“Sa three years na ‘yun. Ang saya ang gaan. Iwan na lang natin doon,” he said.
Isko urged him to give him more information.
Gerald admitted he still can’t believe that he and Julia have been together that long already.
“Nagulat nga ako… that long na. Doon mo talaga malalaman na masaya ka talaga kasi hindi mo na binibilang. Hindi mo nararamdaman. Happy [lang].”
So, what is it about Julia that he likes most?
“Sobrang secure siya sa pagkatao niya,” he answered.
According to Gerald, more than Julia’s beauty and simplicity, he especially admires how supportive she was of his endeavors.
“Like you know, magpa-practice ako ng basketball four hours a day, mag-a-ano ako ng negosyo ilang oras sa isang araw. Noong pandemic, ang dami ko ding trabahong tinanggap pero supportive lang siya. ‘Di nanunumbat. Walang ganun, e. ‘Di mo maramdaman na obligasyon siya,” he explained.
Asked if he thinks she is “pragmatic,” Gerald gave an affirmative response.
Gerald and Julia sparked dating rumors a few months after the release of their 2019 film “Between Maybes.” He confirmed their romance in March 2021 in an interview with “King of Talk” Boy Abunda.
