Carla Abellana recently celebrated her 31st birthday in Europe with beau Tom Rodriguez.
The couple arrived in the country in time for the pilot episode of their romantic-comedy drama “I Heart Davao” which premiered last June 26.
“Gusto sana namin [makanood] kaso nasa biyahe pa kami nun, pero we are very happy to see the reaction ng mga tao” Rodriguez told GMA News.
Rodriguez expressed his joy after spending some quality time with his leading lady.
“Enjoy [kami]. Mas mainit pa pala dun kaysa dito [sa Manila] ngayon. Mali ‘yung dala kong damit,” he happily said.
Coincidentally, the couple also saw Director Jun Lana, whom they used to worked with in the film “So It’s You.”
“It was a lot of fun, really enjoyed it. Ang weird na nasakto namin si Direk Jun Lana sa Amsterdam, who’s one of our favorite directors who directed our film So It’s You,’ Rodriguez said.
Despite their refusal to put label on their relationship, Rodriguez had admitted to GMA News last year that marriage is not far from table.
“That’s definitely a part of my plan. It’s what I want. If I didn’t have to work for survival, kahit ngayon na. Pero siyempre, the reality is hindi kayang lahat ay instant. Marami pang kailangang asikasuhin bago mo maisip ang sarili mong kapakanan,” the actor said.
He added that both of them are on the same page when it comes to settling down.
“It seems like we’re both ready,” Rodriguez admitted. (With reports from Larizza de Vera/AJPress)
