Being in the limelight, there's no denying that Robi Domingo gets quite a few number of presents for his birthday, mainly from fans. 

And while no doubt that he treasures many, if not all of them, there was one gift this year that stood out from the rest, one that even in his own words made him "cry" tears of joy. 

And that's from his girlfriend, Maiqui Pineda. 

As fans found out in Domingo's new vlog uploaded Wednesday where he unboxed his gifts, he received from Pineda a limited edition handcrafted replica of the Poké Ball from the Pokemon franchise. 

The gorgeous item was from Masenko Props, a store in the UK with a mission to "create props as true to the originals as possible." 

"Pinag-uusapan lang namin 'to. Thank you," Domingo, who turned 30, told Pineda, who made a surprise appearance in the vlog near the end. 

"Naiiyak na nga ako kanina pa," the TV host added. 


Spotlight should be on you. :) Congratulations for the successful launch of @artefinoph! Proud of you! 😁

Domingo first hinted at his relationship with Pineda in August 2018. He described their relationship as "authentic and genuine," and said that it just "works" even though they're from "different worlds."
