MANILA, Philippines – Singer-VJ Nikki Gil is elated that her longtime boyfriend Billy Crawford is back in the country after staying in France for two months to revive his international career.
Just last Monday, Gil told PEP in an interview posted on July 5, they went on their “first date in two months.”
“It’s like how it was some four years ago, happy kami,” she added.
The day before, Crawford surprised his girlfriend in the Sunday noontime variety show “ASAP 2012” when he appeared on stage and said, “My name is Billy, I’ve been gone for a long time and nandito ulit ako. Hi, Nikki.”
Gil candidly admitted in the same interview, “Na-stress ako kasi gusto ko siyang yakapin ng moment na ‘yon kaso hindi ko magawa, kasi ‘PBB Teens,’ you know, in the afternoon on a Sunday is not allowed.”
Crawford left the country last April 30. Mere days before his departure, the singer-dancer inked a two-year contract with ABS-CBN.
In an interview with ABS-CBNNews.com posted last month, Gil said that she and Crawford make sure to communicate daily either by Skype or phone calls despite the distance and their respective schedules. A separate interview in March had her relating, “We're working on our relationship with God, bini-build namin 'yung foundation na 'yun para 'pag umalis siya, ‘di magiging issue 'yung trust.”
“If God meant [for] us to be together, malalagpasan namin ang lahat,” she added.
