Elha Nympha already has a boyfriend?
In August 2020, Brian Gazmen, a Star Music recording artist, dedicated a long Instagram post to Elha, whom he referred to as the "love of my life."
Published as is, parts of Brian's caption read: "Hello to the love of my life, you don't know how happy I am to be your boyfriend and how lucky I am that you're my girlfriend.
"I am so happy that you came in to my life. You make me smile every single day, you make me become a better person...
"You are special, that is why I'm proud to tell the whole world that you are my girlfriend, the love of my life because I have never seen a girl like you in my life."
Since then, Elha and Brian have become much more open about their relationship, often exchanging sweet nothings and "I love you" in their posts.
On October 6, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) got in touch with Brian through direct message.
The 20-year-old singer-songwriter then related to PEP.ph how their love story began.
Brian recalled that "exactly Feb 14," on Valentine's Day, they happened to be both on the set of the ABS-CBN morning show Magandang Buhay.
"We met unexpectedly po talaga... I wasn't thinking na we would be together po.
"Pero after meeting each other, nag-collab po kami agad. Then after that, we met Mackie Empuerto and we became like a squad."
Mackie Empuerto is one of the singers of the trio musical act TNT Boys, and he is Elha's best friend.
Thanks to the squad, Brian and Elha got to hang out more often and to be drawn to each other closer and closer.
Inevitably, as Brian revealed, "March 20 po we became together po."
Even when the quarantine has been keeping them physically apart, Brian and Elha are constantly in touch.
They have virtual dates—movie dates or workout dates. He sends Elha gifts to make her feel more special.
Brian said, "Kahit malayo siya sa akin, I would still surprise her through flowers.
"And nung pang 5 months po namin, I surprised her po with a box full of gifts po."
According to the singer, talking to Elha is enough to make his day, "Nawawala po stress ko po kapag nakakausap ko po siya. She just makes me smile every single time po."
He went on to heap loving praises on Elha, intoning she motivates him "through everything... Things got a lot better po."
Brian continued, "She is my girlfriend and my bestfriend at the same time po.
"Siyempre po, sa una po, mahirap dahil malayo po kami sa isa't-isa po.
"Pero every single day, we get to learn a lot from each other po.
"She is always there for me po every time... Alam namin na mahal namin isa't-isa and kaya po namin ito."
"Perfect as You"
In September 2020, Brian released "Perfect as You," a song he wrote for The Voice Kids (2015) champion.
He said, "I was not finding any relationship at that time po kasi, kusa po siyang dumating sa akin in a perfect moment po.
"From that time on po, I believed... na you don’t have to find love, love will find you po.
"It's our love story po, iyan po ang story behind my song."
For her part, she shared her side of their love story on the ABS-CBN online show I Feel U last October 4.
The young performer revealed that her parents know about their relationship.
Asked what made her agree to become Brian's girlfriend?
Elha briefly said, "Iyong patience niya po kasi, saka iyong tiyaga niya po."
Aware that some people may think she's too young for a romantic relationship, the 16-year-old singer said she can't be bothered.
Elha said, "It's okay to comment kahit ano gusto niyo po i-comment kasi hindi rin naman po namin iyon nababasa.
"And also, sa mga nagsasabi na sobrang bata ko pa po para gawin iyong ganoong bagay, depende po iyan, e, sa naghahawak ng relationship and with guidance po ng parents ninyo."
