Nadine Lustre + James Reid: Bumbum

During their appearance on Gandang Gabi Vice, Nadine and James got #real about their relationship. The two are usually pretty private about their lives, but they gave us major kilig when Nadine revealed her pet name for James: "Bumbum." And the reason behind that nickname is the best part. After host Vice Ganda prodded, Nadine shyly explained, "Kasi cute 'yung puwet niya."

Julia Barretto + Joshua Garcia: Baba

Remember when Julia prank called Joshua during a guesting on the radio show Heartbeats with DJ Chacha, and they kept calling each other "Baba"? SO. MANY. FEELS.

When Joshua made an appearance on Tonight With Boy Abunda, he said that "Baba" is a variation of "baby."


Anne Curtis + Erwan Heussaff: Mon Amour

A classic, Mr. and Mrs. Heussaff call each other "Mon Amour," which, as you all probably know by now, means "my love." We're not exactly sure when this started, but here's a video of Anne calling Erwan mon amour and begging for butter—it honestly doesn't get more French than that:

Kathryn Bernardo + Daniel Padilla: Bal

Kathryn and Daniel have had several pet names for each other, including "Baba" and "Pottie" but we all know that right now, it's "Bal." In 2014, they were asked to explain the unusual term of endearment, and the two offered that the pet name could either mean "kambal" or "baliw."

Jessy Mendiola + Luis Manzano: Haw haw

Luis is known for giving his closest friends pet names: He calls Anne Curtis "Nips"; Vice Ganda "Munchie"; Alex Gonzaga "Devil." That's why when Luis started calling girlfriend Jessy Mendiola "Haw haw," we wanted to know the reason behind that pet name. Apparently, it all started when Luis was trying to imitate cats, LOL! He shared, "'Yung 'love,' ginawa ko parang tunog-pusa… hanggang sa naging haw haw na."

Whose pet name is your absolute favorite?
