1. Childhood BFFs: Pia Wurtzbach and Pauleen Luna

Pia Wurtzbach and soon-to-be mommy Pauleen Luna go way, way back.

The two, who have been friends since they were teens, started out in showbiz together. But even though they decided to pursue separate paths with Luna becoming an actress and host, and Wurtzbach pursuing her dreams of becoming Miss Universe, it's nice to see that these two are still close to each other.

2. Cousins turned besties: Ria Atayde and Coleen Garcia

Unknown to many, actresses Ria Atayde and Coleen Garcia are actually cousins. But more than their familial ties, what's really inspiring about these two is how close and supportive they are of each other. Atayde is Garcia's maid of honor in her upcoming wedding with singer Billy Crawford.

3. Unexpected girlfriends: Kim Chiu, Angelica Panganiban, and Bela Padilla

They say anything goes in showbiz. And the saying proves true with the unexpected friendship of actresses Kim Chui, Angelica Panganiban, and Bela Padilla. The trio's friendship, which Panganiban says has been on for only a few months, looks nothing short of fun.

4. Kuya's Angels: Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gonzales, and Mariel Padilla

A friendship that has stood the test of time and the limelight would probably be the best way to describe the bond between Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gozales, and Mariel Padilla.

From single ladies hosting numerous seasons of "Pinoy Big Brother," to becoming wives and now mothers, these three are sure to be friends for life.

5. Enemies on-screen, friends in real life: Bianca King and Beauty Gonzalez

They may have shared some of the feistiest catfights in "Pusong Ligaw" but Bianca King and Beauty Gonzalez are nothing but the sweetest friends to each other in real life.

6. Celebrity kids: Claudia Barretto and Juliana Gomez

With the star status of their parents, it's no wonder that Claudia Barretto and Juliana Gomez's friendship have caught public attention. The two beautiful teens which happens to be schoolmates as well are often seen spending time together.

7. For keeps: Shaina Magdayao and Nikki Gil

Often keeping it low-key, Shaina Magdayao and Nikki Gil's friendship is very laid-back but nothing short of sweetness with them posting a few photos every now and then.

8. Classic group: Mylene Dizon, Cherie Gil, and Agot Isidro

They may not be seen together most of the time but this doesn't mean that Mylene Dizon, Cherie Gil, and Agot Isidro are no longer buddies. We wonder what these great actresses talk about when they're together!

9. BFF goals: Gladys Reyes and Judy Ann Santos

They have shared a number of the most heart-wrenching scenes in Philippine drama but real-life friends Gladys Reyes and Judy Ann Santos have proven they're the ultimate #friendshipgoals. Even though they are now busy with their respective families, the two continue to share a close bond.

10. Soul sisters: Julia Barretto and Erich Gonzales

Julia Barretto's and Erich Gonzales' friendship is one that just keeps on growing stronger. The two oftentimes post photos of their travels and hangouts with Julia's mom Marjorie, who even said she considers Erich as one of her daughters.
