Even Gerald Anderson was surprised when his girlfriend, “Eerie” star Bea Alonzo, posted a bikini photo for the first time in the hope of encouraging self-love among her followers.
The 29-year-old actor was asked about the topic over the weekend, during the blessing of his new gym, in light of his shared fitness goals with Alonzo.
“Nakita niyo nakakagulat. Pati ako nagulat, e!” he said, laughing. But I think ‘yung message niya du’n sa pinost niya is just, ‘Huwag tayong mahiya, huwag tayo ma-pressure or huwag tayo magpadala sa sasabihin ng ibang tao.’”
According to Anderson, he and Alonzo have recently started to bond over exercising, particularly at the gym he is set to open.
“Meron silang all girls group kasi meron kaming ganu’ng workout for mga girls. Siyempre iba-iba ‘yung goals ng bawat tao. Sobrang supportive siya. Dito na ‘yung naging bonding namin actually, sa totoo lang. And it’s good kasi it’s a win-win situation, ‘yung nagsasama kami, may mga nakikilala kami na ibang tao at naging healthy kami at the same time,” he said.
Anderson, who rekindled his romance with Alonzo in 2016, was also asked about whether they have plans of getting married. He said that while he has an ideal marrying age (which he didn’t divulge), he still has a list of plans he hopes to fulfill before starting his own family.
Aside from his acting career — Anderson is gearing up for a new teleserye — he is also juggling his duties with the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League and the Philippine Coast Guard.
