In an interview with Pep.ph, Angelica’s close friend Director Dante Nico Garcia also confirmed the relationship. A video he shot of the couple professing their love for each other further cements the confession.
“In the end, we’re just two happy souls. We’re just happy to share the same feelings. So live it, 'di ba?” said John Lloyd in the video.
