Maja Salvador on why she got back together with ex Rambo Nuñez: ‘Laking bagay talaga ng family niya’
Maja Salvador revealed that the family of her fiancé, businessman Rambo Nuñez, was one of the reasons why she decided to rekindle their romance—even if she once firmly stated that she would never get back with an ex.
During an interview with Boy Abunda, as seen in the May 22 episode of the talk show “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda,” Salvador revealed that Nuñez’s mother made her feel that she was already part of her family since then.
“‘Yung time namin dati, saglit lang. Pero ‘yung four months na ‘yun, sa relationship na ‘yun, hindi lang partner mo ang ico-consider eh. His family also. ‘Yung three [or] four months na ‘yun, si Mom or Tita Marilen, iba ‘yung pina-feel. Pinaramdam niyang anak niya rin ako,” she said.
“Noong nagkabalikan kami ni Rambo, sabi ni Mom [Marilen], kwinento niya. May interview tayo, and she was watching. Tapos ni-record niya at sinend sa group chat nila. Sabi niya, ‘Rambo, bakit hindi na lang siya ulit?’ And then, hindi alam ni Mom na magka-text ulit kami ni Rambo. Noong unang date namin, sobrang laking bagay talaga na ganoon ang family niya,” she continued.
Salvador also revealed that she had been in a four-month relationship with Nuñez, when she was 21 years old, before they decided to call it quits. The actress confirmed that they got back together at an interview with Philippines’ Ultimate Showbiz Hub in March 2019.
“Noong unang naging kami, kailangan kong i-sacrifice ‘yung relationship namin para sa family ko at sa career ko pero siya, sigurado sa’kin eh. Sinabi niya ‘yun kay Mama na if may pera lang siya, if kaya lang niya ako buhayin, papatigilin na niya ako mag-artista,” she said.
The “Wildflower” star also noted that her partner had to ultimately let her go, so she could focus on achieving her dreams.
“Sa dami ng pinagdaanan ko, parang alam ko na kung paano iha-handle. Pero ito, new chapter. Hindi ko pa [pinagdadaanan]. So bagong-bago sa akin, bagong bago sa amin ‘to ni Rambo. At ito ‘yung second chance namin ulit sa forever,” she said.
The actress, who will tie the knot this coming July, confirmed her engagement to Nuñez in April 2022.
During a media conference, Salvador revealed that she would be taking a break from acting in films and teleseryes as part of her preparation for her wedding.
“Kasi sinabi ko rin na ikakasal na ako, gusto ko ng light sana muna. Kasi kung gagawa ako ng teleserye or pelikula, tapos drama or action, maha-haggard ako sa kasal ko. Ayoko namang mag-mukhang haggard sa kasal ko,” she said. /ra
