Celebrity couple John Prats and Isabel Oli
MANILA -- Celebrity couple John Prats and Isabel Oli on Tuesday opened up about speculations that they are getting ready to exchange "I dos" within the year.
Talks about a wedding between the two were fanned by Prats himself, after he posted a picture on Instagram of him kissing Oli’s forehead as he greeted the actress and her family a happy New Year.
In the caption, Prats also shared his wish: "Next year magkasama na tayo pag pasko at bagong taon ah.”
To which Oli replied: “God bless you my love!!! Blessed new year to u Hubb.”
In an interview with ABS-CBNNews.com on Tuesday during the groundbreaking ceremony of the Divine Angels Montessori school in Cainta Rizal, which is owned by Prats' family, the "Banana Split" actor said he is happy with the positive comments elicited by the romantic photo.
"Alam niyo nakakatuwa sa IG kasi hindi lang kami magkasama last Christmas, so sabi ko 'let's spend Christmas this year together.' Tapos parang lahat kasal na ata. Well for me it's a good vibe at OK naman 'yon, positive lahat, masaya," explained Prats, who earlier admitted that he is ready to marry Oli.
But the couple denied that they are already engaged.
"Hinihintay ko pa nga 'yung proposal niya," Prats joked Oli.
Turning serious, he said: "Malalaman niyo naman 'yan sa takdang panahon. Ako when they asked me, natural bakit ko naman sasabihin 'yan? Nauna pa ibang tao kaysa kay Liv (Isabel). Kumbaga gusto ko lang maging espesyal 'yung araw na 'yon kung darating 'yon. Kung kailan, hindi niya pwedeng malaman. I want it to be special and I'm sure malalaman ng tao 'yon."
For her part, Oli said she's ready to settle down with Prats.
"Ako, whenever I enter a relationship, gusto ko ay ganoon na. Serious talaga ako sa relationships so sana, sana talaga," said Oli, who also admitted that they have talked about getting married.
"May mga kwentuhan, may mga plano, pero walang date," she said.
Asked to share her dream proposal, Oli replied: "Basta ako sa lahat ng bagay, basta simple -- kahit saan."
Prats and Oli will mark their first anniversary as a couple later this month.
"Basta sobrang enjoy ako. Wala na akong hihilingin pa. Nakita niyo naman ang aga-aga, nandiyan siya para sa amin," Prats said.
