Today, January 23, Gladys Reyes and Christopher Roxas are celebrating their "24 years of togetherness."
On Instagram, the actress posted a photo taken during their wedding, and captioned, "11 years as boyfriend and girlfriend plus 13 years as a married couple equals 24 years of togetherness. Lord, THANK YOU."
She also got a bit sentimental, briefly recounting "where it all started."
It can be recalled that their romance blossomed on the set of Mara Clara, where she played Clara, while Christopher played Eris.
Both of them were then 15 years old.
Then, she posted her anniversary gift: a Royal Enfield motorbike.
"He's been wanting to have this two years ago but I guess today is the perfect timing."
Helping the couple acquire the Bullet Classic 500 motorcycle was their good friend and motorbike rider Ryan Agoncillo.
According to Royal Enfield Philippines' website, the model costs PHP313,000.
The couple started their day with the Agoncillo Family.
Also in the photo was Christophe (third from left), the eldest son of Gladys and Christopher who is also celebrating his 11th birthday today; Judy Ann Santos (third from right), her baby Luna, and eldest daughter Yohan.
Gladys once again thanked Ryan and Juday, "Thank you sis @officialjuday and Rye @ryan_agoncillo for the perfect timing and special deal hehe. Ang ligaya ng asawa ko, e!"
Here's another post underlining the "gift of friendship."
Gladys, Juday, and Christopher have been friends for 24 years, too.
Judy Ann played Mara in Mara Clara.
Lastly, Gladys prayed for "more years to count, to continue our journey together."
She added, "There will be challenges on our way, but we're not afraid, because we know that our faith will always bind us together with our family. "
And to her husband, she wrote, "Bebe, thank you for loving, understanding and taking good care of me and our beautiful children with all your heart!"
