"We have a relationship. We enjoy each other's company na talaga. There are times na hindi kami nagkakaintindihan, pero ngayon naiintindihan na namin ang isa't isa," said Derek Ramsey about his new girlfriend Angelica Panganiban.
The two ABS-CBN stars—Derek stars in Ysabella, opposite Judy Ann Santos, while Angelica stars in Rounin, opposite Luis Manzano—recently admitted that they are now an item.
Unlike other stars who would dodge relationship questions with the typical "just friends" answer, Derek is proud of his Angel.
"From day one, sinabi ko naman we're taking things slow. As you can see, I'll be more and more open about it kasi mas in-depth na ‘yong pag-understand namin sa isa't isa kaya ayokong i-jinx, e. We're both enjoying each other's company right now and we're spending a lot of time together. And we're more open to the public about it kasi we're more confident about each other now," he commented.
Though they have an eight-year age difference, Derek, 28, and Angel, 20, still found common things about themselves in the seven or eight months they've known each other.
Derek described Angel: "First thing that I liked about her is ano siya, e... Nasa Pilipinas tayo di ba, [mayroong iba diyan] nag-i-English pero marunong naman mag-Tagalog. Si Angel marunong mag-English, pero she's proud to speak in Tagalog. At ako, I'm just learning the language. Proud to say ako na medyo okay na ‘yong Tagalog ko. I talk to her all the time. She's straightforward, e. Sinasabi niya ‘yong nasa ulo niya. Hindi siya takot. Sobrang malambing na tao."
He also revealed one of the things they do on their spare time.
