Actor Paolo Contis waxed nostalgic and looked back on happy times outside their home with his partner, actress LJ Reyes, to mark their fifth anniversary as a couple.
Contis showed photos of him and Reyes which captured them in various locations – at the park, inside a restaurant, in the United States, at the beach and outside a studio. He posted these on his Instagram account last Sunday, July 26.
“5 pictures, 5 years… but only 1 YOU!!! Thank you for everything, Mahal..!!” Paolo said.
Contis spoke about how their relationship has worked throughout the five years.
“@lj_reyes hindi alam ng tao kung gaano ako kahirap pakisamahan minsan (or madalas [emoji] ) they don’t know the things you have given up for me, they don’t know how strong you are, they don’t know na ikaw ang main ingredient ng bahay na to kaya kaming lahat ay masaya at malakas. Marami pa silang hindi alam… pero lahat yan, ay alam ko! And I am so lucky and thankful..!! I love you so much, Mahal ko!!” he said.
(LJ, not everyone knows how I am difficult to deal with sometimes (or oftentimes), they don’t know that you are the main ingredient in this household, and that’s why we are all happy and strong. They don’t know a lot more things, but I know all of them. I love you so much, my love.)
His greeting was read by Reyes who responded, “I love you!!! Thank you for the simplest things.”
Fellow celebrities like Drew Arellano and Jessa Zaragoza greeted them as well.
Reyes also posted a photo together with her husband and bearing a sweet message, as seen on her Instagram page on the same day.
“It’s such a difficult time and all I can say is that there’s no other person I would want to go through this than you! It’s honestly been such a roller coaster ride of emotions for me lately, but thank you for being patient with me!” she said. “Thanks for always being the strength I didn’t know I needed! I wish for more fruitful years with you and the kids! I love you @paolo_contis! Happy 5th! Sa 6th mo nalang ako ulit itry isurprise (You can try surprising me again on our 6th)!”
Contis joked, “In fairness talaga mukha kitang pamangkin sa picture na to ha!! i love you iha! next time pwede pag isusurprise kita, makisama ka naman!”
(In fairness, you really look like my niece in this picture. I love you, hija! Next time, when I try to surprise you, please cooperate.) JB
