After confirming that they’re a couple, Vice Ganda and Ion Perez have been getting noticeably sweet on their social media accounts, sharing photos of themselves having the time of their lives in various places. The photos garnered a lot of attention from fans, and Vice in particular can’t help but feel overwhelmed by their constant support.
During an interview on the photoshoot for his upcoming movie The Mall, The Merrier, Vice wasn’t at all hesitant to spill more details about their coming out as a couple. According to the Unkabogable Star, they have been together for a year and he has had enough of having to hide away his love, believing Ion doesn’t deserve such treatment. He says, “Kasi dati ‘yun yung iniinda kong sakit eh...ba’t parang hindi naman ako kayang ipagmalaki ng mga lalaking nakakarelasyon ko o minamahal ko. Tapos sabi ko, ‘bakit ‘yung nararamdaman kong ganon dati, bakit ko ipaparamdam kay Ion?”
He then adds, “Kasi siya nauna eh, siya ‘yung mga nagpo-post noon pa sa Instagram, ako bihira eh. Sabi ko, ‘deserve ni Ion ‘to, kasi mabuti naman siyang tao bakit ko siya ikahihiya?'”
Now that they’ve declared they’re an item, let’s take a look at these moments where Vice and Ion show off their love to the world, loud and proud, on their social media!

A truly happy Halloween
On November 1, Vice posts a photo of him and Ion dressed up in Shibuya, Japan as Jasmine and Aladdin respectively. He wrote a fitting caption for the photo: “Now I’m in a whole new world with you. #ShibuyaHalloween2019 @pereziion27”.
Bonding over coffee
Vice captions this photo with, “You start being happy the moment you stop giving a shit!” As of writing, this picture of the couple laughing as they link arms and hold up their coffee has more than 900,000 likes on Instagram.
Sporting the color of love
Vice posts another photo of themselves going matchy-matchy by wearing intense shades of red. Vice writes of this photo: “Noon may nagsabing ‘Walang Forever!’. Pero may natagpuan ako kaya sabi naman nila ‘Sana oil!’. At ngayong damang dama nila ang saya ko ang masasabi mo na lng ‘Apakayabang mo!’. Hehehehe!!!”
Out and proud
“This love is too beautiful to be kept in the closet,” Vice writes under this photo of him and Ion exploring more streets in Japan. Coming out of the closet is a metaphor for LGBT people, which means revealing to loved ones, or the public, their sexual orientation.
A king and his queen
Ion posts this photo with a caption, “Ang gandang REYNA na sinayang nila ngayon pag a HARI kuna siya!” It’s worth noting that Ion has referred to Vice as his “reyna” even before they’ve admitted to being an item.
One of Ion’s most recent post is of him and Vice huddled close together and making silly faces. On his caption he writes: “Ipag damot muna saken ang lahat wag lang ang pag tulog ko! Pero pag siya na ang ng gugulo parang bagong gising ako! #reynako #reynakulit #reynamahalko”
A hint of happiness
Before officially coming out, Vice has also posted a photo of them together holding hands during the All Star Games 2019, hinting at their romance with a caption that says, “Everybody deserves to love and be happy. Everybody includes YOU and ME.”
