Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil are celebrating Christmas together.
Speaking to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press, the reel love team now real sweethearts shared their plans for the holidays.
Liza said, "I'm gonna be going to the States to spend time with my family and also with Enrique's family.
"But it's going to be a bit shorter than how I usually spend our holiday trips because we have a new show coming out, and we have to start working on that."
Enrique threw in, "I'm planning to have fun, I want to eat a lot pero mahirap na kasi pagbalik taping so I have to control.
"Ang hirap kasi ang sarap kumain. It sucks 'cause it's the holidays."
Liza and Enrique met the press at the opening of her Hope Wellness Center in Alabang, Muntinlupa City, last December 8, 2019.
Their first stop on their holiday trip is Los Angeles in California, then they will fly to Hawaii with Enrique's mom Bambi Gil to welcome the New Year .
The Kapamilya actor told PEP.ph in a separate interview, "We're going to L.A. and then, from L.A., we're gonna head to Hawaii kasi mahilig talaga kami sa beach.
"We really want to unwind and relax. We're really gonna be there 'cause my mom wants to go there. So, I'm doing it for my mama."
LIZA'S CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS
Liza also revealed how her family usually celebrates the Christmas season.
She said, "In the States, when I'm in the States, we always wear ugly Christmas sweaters."
Another tradition Liza enjoys doing during the holidays is gift-giving.
She explained, "Here kasi in the Philippines, we celebrate it on the 24th, di ba? Parang salubong.
"Pero in the States, it's really the 25th. So one tradition that we do is on the 24th, Christmas eve, we open one present each.
"And then we save the rest of the presents for the morning of the 25th, and it's really fun 'cause I like to help out, help cook.
"I usually make the dessert when I was younger, but now, I'm able to cook. I don't know what we're gonna be making this Christmas, but I'm excited for that."
And this Christmas, what Liza is most excited about is giving her gift to Enrique.
Liza told the press, "He's gonna be with me on Christmas day, so I can give it to him on Christmas day.
"But I usually have like multiple Christmas gifts, but there's one main gift. There are a lot of stocking stuffers, mini gifts that I find fun and quirky that I give to people."
ENRIQUE'S CHRISTMAS with his mom
A certified mama's boy, Enrique, no matter his other commitments, makes sure he spends as much time as he can with his mom.
He said, "My dad passed away in 2008 so si mama na lang yung natitira. I gotta take care of her."
Asked about their usual bonding moments, Enrique said, "We're always busy but whenever we're home, ang bonding namin pagkain.
"That's why Liza, laging gusto niya sa bahay namin kasi laging nagluluto si mama.
"Yun lang, bonding moments namin ni Mama is when she cooks and when we eat.
"I think that's the time a family can have together, just sit down and eat."
And so there's his mom Bambi flying with him to the States.
Enrique just has to be with her on Christmas and to welcome another year of mother-son bonding at the start of 2020.
