Love Actually: Erich Gonzales And Daniel Matsunaga, Sweet Devotion Anchored On Faith And Trust

Ever since they first got together onscreen as guests on the now-defunct morning show KrisTV, Erich Gonzalez and Daniel Matsunaga's chemistry was undeniable and their just concluded morning soap opera, Be My Lady, is just another proof of how much of a match made in heaven they are. “Nung una niyang pagpasok [sa show], normal lang. Masaya ako to see him and maging parte siya ng ’Two Wives.’ Walang ilangan at all. Kahit nung una naming kilala sa Palawan, nandoon agad ‘yung connection. I don’t have to pretend na prim and proper ako dapat. Kung ano lang ako, nakita niya kaagad,” recalled Erich in another KrisTV guesting. During that time Erich was still in a relationship, and it was still some time after the two broke up that Erich told Daniel about it. Daniel, on his part, didn't court Erich right away. He waited for the perfect timing.

“I always said in every interview na God really has his own timing. It’s not something that you have to rush. I never rushed any relationship. I always waited. I just trust, have faith. It really happens in the right time,” he said.

Since then they’ve been all-out with their romance because as Daniel shares, “Para sa akin, if you’re in a relationship, you don’t have to hide it, especially if you have God at the center of your relationship, you don’t have to be afraid of showing love." Their Instagram accounts are filled with so many kilig photos of them together that only show how strong their relationship is and how deeply in love they are with each other. But what makes this good-looking couple even cooler than they already are is how they pretty much do everything together, which might just be their way of strengthening their bond even more.


They travel together. A quick look at both of their Instagram feeds will tell you that these lovebirds enjoy traveling, spreading love and kilig wherever they are, from San Francisco, USA to Paris, France, to Singapore where parts of Be My Lady were shot.




They sweat it out together. They clearly are each other's motivation to stay in good shape despite their busy schedules.



They make the most of their downtime together. By never leaving each other's side and enjoying quiet time.


Beauty days also mean couple time! Salon trips just got much more sweeter.
