MANILA, Philippines -- Nikki Gil appreciates her boyfriend, singer-host Billy Crawford, for embracing her "eccentric moments."

During a press conference on Tuesday for the upcoming local staging of the musical comedy "They're Playing Our Song," the Kapamilya singer-actress was asked to relate her "most romantic" experience.

"I like it when a person appreciates or accepts your quirks and live with it and support it," Gil began. "I have my own eccentric moments."

"And I remember one time -- I take forever fixing up, because I'm a girl, we all do. I was rushing, I was stressed, and I remember Billy offering to blowdry my hair for me," she said, drawing laughter from the attending members of the press.

"I even had a photo-op because he was dead serious, and you know, trying to speed things up and to make less hassle for me, so blinow dry niya talaga 'yung hair ko. I think that's the most romantic thing he's ever done," she said.

A couple for almost five years now, Gil said she and the "It's Showtime" host have discussed settling down, but "not in the near future." The "Sweet Charity" star pointed to her and Crawford's respective careers currently taking a bulk of their time.

After recently starring in the afternoon drama "Mundo Man ay Magunaw," Gil will play the lead role, this time on stage, in 9 Works Theatrical's upcoming revival of "They're Playing Our Song."

The 25-year-old VJ also told that her long-time boyfriend have been very supportive of her showbiz endeavors.

"Wala naman akong masabi sa support ni Billy, talagang sobra siyang manager level, and I really appreciate it," Gil said.

Asked on the current status of their relationship, she happily shared, "We're good, we're happy, we're stable, we're steady."
