When Enrique Gil celebrated his 24th birthday last March 30, Liza Soberano gave him a flyboard as a gift.
She revealed this to reporters during a set visit for their ABS-CBN primetime show Dolce Amore held last night, April 21, at the Cornel Medical Center located in Antipolo.
A flyboard is a water-powered jet pack that allows the user to rise into the air, dive, and jump out of the water.
Since last year, Enrique has been vocal in saying that he loves Liza. The ABS-CBN actress just turned 18 last January.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) took this chance to ask Liza if she felt the same way about Enrique.
Does she already say "I love you" to Enrique?
“Well... ipo-post niyo na naman sa articles niyo...
“Secret lang," said the 18-year-old girl as she shyly hid her face behind Enrique.
“Open naman ako, love ko siya,” admitted Liza as she touched Enrique's back.
“But, you know, things take time. Saka you have to take things slowly.
“Basta I like where we're at right now.”
When asked what sacrifices Enrique did for her already, Liza pointed out, “Wala naman akong sinasabing magbago siya.”
She asked Enrique directly: “Is there something bad you need to change?”
He answered, “It's not necessarily something bad.”
Liza said about Enrique, “Sobrang effort naman siya. Trying to be cool with my father and family.
“A siya dun. A for effort.
“Marami siyang ginawa. Like, for my debut, dinala niya dito ang mga kapatid ko.
“Nung nag-New York kami, sinamahan niya ako sa mommmy ko.”
The actress was referring to the fact that Enrique was by her side when he reunited with her biological mother, Jacqulyn Elizabeth Hanley, after seven years.
When Enrique was asked if he notices Liza making an effort for him as well, he said, “Konti,” before laughing out loud and taking it back. “Joke lang!”
He turned serious as he said, “Oo naman. Siyempre.
“Effort rin naman siya to let her family get close to me. She finds ways para magsama kami lagi.
“Kapag may free day, lalabas. Kung kasama niya ang family niya, invited rin ako.
“Those little things. Importante ang mga maliliit na bagay.”
What would prompt them to take things to the next level?
Enrique said, “"Kasi gusto ng dad niya, mag-focus muna siya.
“Siguro kapag nakabili na siya ng sariling bahay niya for herself.
“Siguro gusto niya settled muna ang lahat bago may ibang...
“Hindi naman ako makakagulo sa isip niya pero siyempre he's just looking out for her welfare naman.
“Ganun din ako kapag may anak akong babae.”
To follow up, PEP asked Enrique for his reaction to Liza's declaration that she loves him as well.
Enrique turned to Liza and asked her, “Sorry, anong sabi mo?"
Liza looked away while he answered with a big smile, “Alam ko na yun. Tagal na.”
