MANILA — Onscreen sweethearts Seth Fedelin and Andrea Brillantes are set to walk the red carpet together at the ABS-CBN Ball, after the showbiz newcomer surprised his leading lady with a grand gesture on Wednesday.
On Instagram, Fedelin shared a photo of him with his “Kadenang Ginto” co-star inside a room full of red balloons. Brillantes is seen holding a bouquet of sunflowers, while Fedelin has with him a stuffed toy dog.
A separate post from Brillantes, meanwhile, shows several tea candles arranged on the floor to depict a heart pierced with an arrow, with flower petals as decoration.
“Salamat Marga este Ms. Blythe sa pagpayag na maging kapartner ko sa darating na ABS-CBN Ball,” Fedelin wrote in the caption, referring to Brillantes’ “Kadenang Ginto” character, and her real name.
“At lagi mong tatandaan: Kahit na anong sabihin ng iba, respeto ko sa iyo ay kailanman hindi mawawala,” he added.
Brillantes, in her Instagram post, said it was the first time she got such a surprise.
Thanking “Potchi,” her term of endearment for Fedelin, the teen actress said: “Siyempre hindi naman ako tatanggi maging partner mo sa ABS-CBN Ball. Lakas mo sa ’kin, e!”
The 2009 ABS-CBN Ball is scheduled on September 14 and will be Filipiniana-themed. The charity event will benefit the Bantay Education program of Bantay Bata 163.
