Jerome Ponce feels lucky to have volleyball star Mika Reyes in his life
Kapamilya actor Jerome Ponce is all praises for his girlfriend, volleyball player Mika Reyes.
In a recent interview with ABS-CBN’s daily morning talk show “Magandang Buhay”, the actor shared that he did not even expect Reyes to come into his life.
“Na-meet ko siya sa hindi ko ini-expect na panahon. Hindi ko din ini-expect ‘yung nangyayari sa amin na pagbibigay niya ng oras,” Ponce said.
(I met her at an unexpected time. I also did not expect that she would give our relationship time.)
He also spoke about the impact of Reyes’ strong personality on him.
“Kapag makikipag-away ang lalaki, kami yung ‘o bahala ka diyan, di kita kakausapin, di kita ite-text’ ganun ang nasa isip namin. Sa kanya talaga hindi pwede, kailangan eh kausapin ko ito. Hindi nawawala sa isip ko ‘yon na kailangan kausapin ko ito,” Ponce added.
(If a guy stages a fight, it’s us who’s always, ‘I’ll let you be, I won’t talk to you, I won’t text you’ that’s how we [men] think. With her, it’s not possible, I need to talk to her. It doesn’t ever leave my mind to talk to her.)
“Ganun din naman ako before pero kapag tumatanda ka na doon mo nare-realize na mas ginagawan mo ng effort, kasi habang tumatagal may natutunan ka sa relasyon,” he added.
(I’ve been like that before, but when we grow older, we realize that [we’ve got to] put more effort into things, because the longer a relationship lasts, the more we learn.)
Moreover, Ponce shared that he learns a lot from the volleyball industry because of his athlete girlfriend.
“Ang dami kong natutunan sa industriya niya… siya ‘yung nagtuturo sa akin,” he said.
(I learn a lot from her industry… she teaches me.)
Jerome Ponce is part of the upcoming Kapamilya primetime teleserye “The Good Son”, set to air on Sept. 25, right after “La Luna Sangre”. He previously appeared in other ABS-CBN shows such as the afternoon drama, “Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita”. He rose to fame via the hit morning teleserye “Be Careful With My Heart”.
Meanwhile, Mika Reyes was recently made team captain of the Philippine women’s volleyball team. She was one of the star players of De La Salle University during her collegiate days. JB
