It's hard to find a best friend in showbiz, more so a boy best friend (BBF).
Angelica Panganiban feels lucky to have found a BBF in John Prats, who recently celebrated his 36th birthday on February 14.
On the actor's birthday, Angelica gave John and his wife Isabel Oli a shout-out.
Her caption read, "May mas lalambing pa ba sa kaibigan kong ‘to? Napakakumportable ko sa iyo, pets. Napakabuti mo kasing tao.
"Binalik mo sa buhay ko si Jesus. Kayo ni @isabeloliprats. Greatest blessing kayo sa buhay ko.
"Happy birthday petty pets. Mahal kita at ang lumalaki mong pamilya."
The photo accompanying the short but sweet message showed John hugging Angelica while they were asleep.
Does Isabel ever get jealous?
In his previous interviews, John had made it clear Isabel, nicknamed Liv, had "no reason to feel threatened" by Angelica.
He told ABS-CBN News, “Liv loves Angelica very much....If there was something romantic between us, I would have courted Angelica a long time ago, when we were both single and available. I treat her as a sister."
In another interview, John elucidated, "Yung friendship namin is sobrang sagrado at yung tratuhan namin ay magkapatid..."
In fact, Angelica was his "best man" when he and Isabel tied the knot in May 2015.
Angelica told ABS-CBN News then, "Nakakatuwa kasi mas madalas ko silang nakakasama ngayon. Kasi kinuha ako ni Pratty [John's nickname] na ‘best man.’
"Involved ako sa planning. Shine-share nila sa akin yung mga ideas nila. Tinatanong nila kung okay ba iyon. Happy ako for them."
Although Angelica and John have known each other since they were kids, her childhood friend then was his sister Camille.
The friendship of Angelica and John bloomed on the set of Banana Sundae, which started airing in October 2008.
In 2017, they became business partners in Bright Bulb Productions, a production house they set up together with Sam Milby.
