Basketball player JC Intal and Bianca Gonzalez
MANILA – Basketball player JC Intal revealed that it was the big fight that he and Bianca Gonzalez had a week prior to his proposal that made him realize that he wants to settle down with the Kapamilya host.
In a taped interview with Boy Abunda which aired on “Buzz ng Bayan” on Sunday, Intal said their misunderstanding became the turning point because he already saw Gonzalez’s “worst and best.”
“Nakita ko na kasi 'yung bad side niya. The worst and the best. Sabi ko I think it’s time na to settle down,” he said. “Dumating na lang talaga 'yung time na I felt na parang sure na ako na I want to marry Bianca. Wala akong nakikitang reason na hindi ako mag-decide na pakasalan siya.”
As proof that he indeed sees Gonzalez as his future wife, Intal shared that he already had their house built months before their actual wedding.
“Sobrang blessed na nandun na 'yung bahay bago pa kami mag-asawa. May lilipatan na kami agad,” he said.
When asked if having kids is also within their immediate plans, Gonzalez quipped, “Oh my gosh nate-tense ako. 'Yung brother ko sabi, ‘Hoy ayaw ko masyadong malaki ang age gap ng mga anak ko sa mga pinsan niya.’ Sabi ko, ‘Wait lang. Hindi pa ako ready. Hindi pa ako nakakahinga. Iisipin ko muna.’”
Gonzalez and Intal made headlines in late March when the basketball player proposed to his girlfriend of three years at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, as photos and videos of the grand gesture went viral online.
Gonzalez was en route to London for a short course on journalism and design.
To this day, the former “Umagang Kay Ganda” host said she still could not believe that Intal pulled off a proposal like that.
“I kept on telling him nga na sobrang out of character kasi sobra niyang quiet na tao. So for him to come up with that and arrange all that, sobrang overwhelming,” she said.
Gonzalez and Intal are planning to wed in December.
