Sheryl Cruz disclosed that her ex-boyfriend Anjo Yllana proposed to her before she moved to the United States in the 1990s, but that they broke off their engagement after the actor “got somebody pregnant.”

Cruz made this revelation in the May 23 episode of “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda,” after show host Abunda asked if she had a closure with Yllana before she married her now-former husband Norman Bustos.


“Actually, nagtampo ako sa kanya noon because he actually asked for my hand in marriage that time—before I left for the States and decided to actually try it there, and met Norman,” the actress recalled.


“[Nagtampo ako] because he asked for my hand in marriage and I said yes, and then I found that he got somebody pregnant. So ‘di ba, kahit papaano [he] broke my heart,” she continued.

The actress further revealed that after she returned to the Philippines and got divorced from Bustos, she and Yllana—who was also separated at the time—had a “moment” to reconnect.

“Nagkaroon kami ng moment wherein we were able to see each other again, catch up on things, and tried to—I guess—have another go at it,” she told Abunda, although she said the relationship unfortunately didn’t work out as well.

Cruz then underscored that they already left everything that happened in the past, and that they are now good friends.

During the interview, Cruz also spoke about her past relationships which include her former love team partner, actor Romnick Sarmenta.

The actress noted that Sarmenta did court her, although she doesn’t consider their relationship serious because she was much focused on her other priorities at the time.
