Richard Gomez: “We were doing that commercial for almost five years. And then …“
RICHARD GOMEZ – The actor-politician recently shared how he and his wife Lucy Torres got together.
The celebrity couple have a 22-year-old daughter, who is a fencer like her father.
Richard appeared in the latest vlog of actress-vlogger Bea Alonzo where he opened up about his love story with Lucy.
In an interview with the actress-vlogger, Richard shared that he and Lucy were doing a shampoo commercial for almost 5 years and he said that he’s sad when the producer told them that the last commercial “will be last of the series” at that time.
“We were doing that commercial for almost five years. And then on the last commercial sabi nung producer, ‘This will be last of the series,’” Richard said. “Na-sad ako, [sabi ko] hindi ko na makikita ‘to ah,” he added. “Sabi ko, type ko pala ‘tong babaeng ‘to.“
According to Richard, he and Lucy were both seeing other people at that time. But the actor said that he started pursuing her when the commercial ended.
The actor shared that he flew to Germany in order for him to undergo fencing training back then. However, the actor said that the distance didn’t stop him from chasing Lucy at that time.
Richard then told Bea that he would go to coin-operated telephone booths just to talk to her during that time.
According to Richard, Lucy became his girlfriend when he returned to the Philippines on September and she said yes when he proposed to her three months later. At that time, Richard was 32 years old and Lucy was 21.
The actor was also asked if he didn’t ask permission from her parents. He said he just stated his intentions to her parents at that time.
“Hindi ko sinabi na, ‘Pwede ko po bang hingin ang kamay ng anak n’yo?’ Hindi, sabi ko, ‘I’m going to marry your daughter,’” he said.
Richard and Lucy got married 4 month after. The celebrity couple recently celebrated their 25th anniversary as a married couple.
