Trina Candaza looked back at how she used to just admire Carlo Aquino from afar, not knowing that she would end up and start a family with him years later.
“Dati pinopost lang kita, hindi ko alam sayo pala ako magkakaron ng sariling pamilya ,” the 24-year-old model on Friday wrote in a “then and now” Facebook post about her relationship with the actor.
Trina shared a screenshot of her gushing about Carlo in a Facebook post back in 2018 alongside a photo of their daughter baby Enola Mithi’s baptism last month.
“Feb 2018 ko shinare yung post, May 2018 nagkakilala kami, January 2019 naging kami na, then September 2020 dumating na yung angel namin,” shared Trina.
It was September of last year when Carlo surprised the public after revealing on Instagram that he’s already a father to a baby girl.
Trina also has this advice to those who are looking for “the one”.
“Share lang kayo ng share malay niyo sila pala ang forever niyo! Pero si Carlo Aquino sa akin na po siya ,” Trina said in jest.
Meanwhile, in an interview with his La Vida Lena co-star Erich Gonzales in her vlog last March 7, Carlo said that he first met Trina during a car show at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
“Tapos nakita ko siya. Tapos sabi ko, ‘Ang ganda ng mata mo.’ Siya lang iyong napansin ko talaga. Tapos, nagpa-picture ako sa kanya,” he recalled.
A few weeks after their first meeting, he started looking for her on Facebook. “Hinanap ko siya sa Facebook. Actually, kilala ko pala iyong sister niya… (so) hinanap ko siya sa Facebook ng sister niya. Nag-stalk pa ‘ko,” he said.
Carlo got Trina’s number and took her out on a date. “Nilabas ko siya, nag-Greenhills kami, ganyan. Nagdire-diretso na.”
Carlo no longer went into detail but there was a time they stopped seeing each other. However, he just couldn’t forget her.
“May time na tumigil, nagkagulo, kung ano-ano na nangyari. Ayoko na maging detalyado dun. Tapos nagkita ulit kami… kasi di ko siya makalimutan.”
