Issa Pressman on romance with James Reid: ‘We’re obsessed with each other’
Despite finding themselves at the receiving end of criticisms after seemingly confirming their relationship in March, Issa Pressman revealed that it was a moment that proved “how much of a supportive boyfriend” James Reid turned out to be.
Pressman and Reid addressed critics of their relationship during an interview with entertainment outlet PUSH on its YouTube channel, to which the British-Filipino model opted to see the ordeal as a “good test” on how they’re willing to be there for each other.
“Honestly, I think every single couple who goes through challenges, that’s a good test to know how you are gonna be there for each other. I think that moment really proved to me how much of a supportive boyfriend I have,” she said.
Pressman then admitted that she wouldn’t have been able to go through the criticisms without Reid’s support.
“I really felt like, I wouldn’t have gone through that situation if it wasn’t for him. He really made me feel comfortable, strong, safe, and very much protected,” she said. “And he always made me see the positive in every single negative, you know, and that brought up the positivity in me. But I’m happy. We’re happy.”

During the interview, Pressman said she and Reid are currently in the state of their romance where they’re “obsessed with each other.”
“He’s obsessed with me, I’m obsessed with him, we’re obsessed with each other,” she said. “He’s making sure that my health is correct because of my throat operation. He makes sure that I don’t talk much when I’m not supposed to.”
For his part, the singer-actor said he and Pressman were just living their “best lives.”
We’re very happy,” he said. “It’s honestly better than ever. Like, we’ve been through a lot this year. It really tested us and it made us even stronger, like, more than I could’ve imagined. I’m just happy with her.”
Earlier this month, Reid declared to reporters on the sidelines of the Preview Ball that he’s “very in love” with Pressman, saying she’s the “sunshine who lights up [his] day.”
The couple seemingly confirmed their relationship last March after they were spotted at the concert of Harry Styles in Bulacan. EDV
