After two years of being single, Bernard "BJ" Palanca revealed that he’s in a relationship with a non-showbiz girl named Tracey Tabora.
In his Instagram post today, May 20, BJ admitted that he almost gave up on love until he met his current girlfriend.
The actor's sweet message for Tracey partly read, “Just when I was about to give up on love…you came along and made it real again.
“I love you for staying by my side. I love you for believing in me.
“I love you for giving me hope, and making me see what love is and can really be.”
The 40-year-old actor also vowed to be the best boyfriend to Tracey, whose Instagram bio says she's a fashion designer and a professor.
He continued, “I promise to love you in the best way that I can and know how.
“Thank you for making my heart smile again. I love you @traceytabora”
The couple’s sweet photo was taken during their summer getaway in Balesin Island Club, an exclusive resort in Polilio, Quezon.
Bernard has a nine-year-old son with ex-wife Meryll Soriano and a three-year-old son with ex-girlfriend Jerika Ejercito.
