MANILA -- Rosanna Roces and her lesbian partner, Blessy Arias, are set to get married in Canada next month. They will also have a ceremony in the Philippines in December.

On Sunday, the couple shared the story behind their relationship, which started in their teens.

In an exclusive interview in "Rated K," Roces and Arias revealed that they have long known each other. Roces was only 15 years old, while Arias was 19 when they first met.

According to Roces, they first met through Arias's sister, who was also her friend.

Arias was among those who supported Roces through the different stages of her life, including her pregnancy with her first child.

The two lost contact when Roces became an actress, and married husband, Tito Molina.

But after several years, Roces and Arias eventually went back in each others' arms.

Earlier this year, Roces has already admitted her relationship with Arias in an interview in "Tonight With Boy Abunda" early this year.
