MANILA – “We are exclusively dating.”

This is what Nikki Gil said when asked by “The Buzz” host Kris Aquino on Sunday about the real score between her and the non-showbiz guy she’s been seeing for months now.

“I know it’s very vague. I’m not dating anybody else. We are working on making it something more concrete,” she further explained.

This is also why she prefers to be more private about her personal life this time. “It’s just that… ayan na naman announce. Kasi hindi lang naman kami 'yung nasa relasyon. There are so many people involved. I really want to take my time,” she said.

Gil, however, admitted that she feels fortunate to have someone who understands the nature of her job.

“He knows when we started dating na parte na [ang mga intimate scenes] ng trabaho ko,” she said.

According to Aquino, the non-showbiz guy is related to singer-composer Jose Marie Chan and is also the owner of the 2nd's restaurant at the Bonifacio Global City.

Gil, who is starring in the breakup musical "The Last Five Years," said she is just grateful that after all her prayers, she now considers herself whole again.

“Mabait ang Panginoon. I think nagtanim na ako ng maraming magandang bagay. It’s really just God being good to me even if I don’t deserve it. He really just, when I asked him to make me whole, he did. Nadadaan talaga siya sa prayer,” she said.

Gil was previously in a relationship with Billy Crawford. The two broke up in July last year after being together for five years.

Crawford is now in a relationship with his “It’s Showtime” co-host Coleen Garcia.
