Loisa Andalio is proud of her real-life boyfriend, Ronnie Alonte, for top-billing the upcoming episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya.
On Saturday, January 19, MMK will feature the life story of Paul Desiderio, the former captain of the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons.
Ronnie is set to portray Paul in the episode.
On January 15, Loisa posted a teaser of Ronnie's episode on her Twitter account.
She then wrote, "Congrats beh, alam ko ginalingan mo dito!"
"Beh" is Loisa and Ronnie's term of endearment.
A day after she posted her message, Loisa revealed that she is also set to tape scenes for ABS-CBN's drama anthology show.
She wrote on Twitter, "MMK taping tomorrow! Don't forget to watch MMK this Saturday, 8:30 PM! Ang kwento ni Mister Atin to!"
In December 2018, Loisa and Ronnie confirmed that they have been a couple for two years.
The two are set to work together in the upcoming prime-time series, The General's Daughter.
