Comedian Wacky Kiray, or Ricardo Balaroso Jr. in real life, admitted to getting emotional whenever he talks about his 12-year relationship.
He and his partner Jereck Ty met in the most conventional way.
In an exchange of messages with the I Can Do That contestant earlier today, May 30, he detailed to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) how he and his partner first met back in 2005.
His message reads, "I met my partner in July 25, 2005, sa Punchline Comedy Bar.
"Naka-set ako, Sunday night, then he's one of the audience.
"Lahat sila naka-red, around 30 of them.
"Isang angkan sila, lahat naka-pula, birthday ng lola nila.
"Sa harap pa nakaharap kaya pansinin at subject ng joke.
"Pinaakyat namin sa stage para mapaglaruan."
Wacky continued, "Patapos na ang gabi, mga pinsan niya teased him to sing on stage.
"Binulong ko na kunin ko number niya.
"Pauwi na sila, nakita ko, nag-CR.
"Sinundan ko siya kahit kumakanta pa ako sa stage, naka-on ang mic ko.
"Yun pala, ready na... inabot niya sa akin tissue with his number.
"Then, we met the following day... we meet every day after my set or after his work."
And, as cliché as it may sound, the rest is history.
According to Jereck's Facebook account, he had his culinary internship in Mandarin Oriental Manila and finished his grad school in the University of the Philippines Diliman.
Although, Wacky admitted, "Not a single day na di kami nag-aaway sa mga petty things."
Even a missed call can be the root of their arguments, he said in his message.
The 38-year-old comedian added, "Ibang-iba ang hilig ko sa hilig niya."
But when asked what was their secret to a happy and long-lasting relationship, Wacky answered, "Love, understanding, and acceptance."
Wacky also noted, "Gusto siya ng family ko at gusto ako ng family niya.
"What keeps us together kasi, we just want to be together despite of our differences."
TV INTERVIEW. During his guesting on Tonight With Boy Abunda, aired last night, May 29, the comedian admitted, "Medyo nagiging emosyunal [ako] sa kanya kasi ang dami na po naming naging pagsubok sa buhay.
"Yung meron pang naging mas malalang-malala, pero hinding-hindi siya bumitaw sa akin."
He added, "Bumitaw siya ta's bumalik siya sa akin."
Wacky lovingly referred to Jereck as "biyaya siya ng Panginoon sa akin."
The Kapamilya artist is beyond grateful for all the lessons he had learned from him.
And he had nothing but good words for his long-term boyfriend.
"Ang dami ko pong natutunan sa kanya, sobrang dami.
"Hindi ako nakatapos, marami akong mga bagay na hindi alam na isini-share niya sa akin."
Host Boy Abunda then asked who is more the jealous type.
Wacky jested, "Siya, hindi siya nagseselos, kasi alam niyo naman yung hitsura ko, hindi naman lapitin, e."
On a more serious tone, he revealed, "Ako, nagseselos sa kanya. Nagseselos ako, sobra.
"Kapag may ka-text siya, mag-aaway na kami."
