Ryan Bang recently took the opportunity to publicly express his love and appreciation for his non-showbiz Pinay girlfriend.
During an episode of It’s Showtime, the 29-year-old Korean host-comedian held back tears as he said how lucky he is that Kierstin Bautista chose him to be her partner.
“Napakaswerte kong tao talaga. Thank you Lord at talagang pinili mo ako. Sa dami ng nakapaligid sayo na mga friend, talagang ako pinili mo. Gagawin ko ang lahat para talagang tama yung desisyon mo na ako yung pinili mo,” said Ryan.
Ryan, who earned his popularity after his Pinoy Big Brother stint, continued to thank his girlfriend for staying the same even if they go through hardship at times.
“Gusto kong magpasalamat kasi dati nung bago pa lang kami, lagi tayo nagde-date sa labas. Lagi ako nagpapatawa sa’yo. Pero recently, meron din akong pinagdadaanan.
“Hindi tayo masyado kumakain sa labas. Nagtitipid din ako. Minsan hindi ako nagpapatawa sa’yo. (Pero) parehas ka pa rin, ‘di nagbabago, kaya maraming, maraming salamat.”
He added, “Balang araw talaga babawi ako sa’yo. I love you.”
Ryan then received teasing from his co-hosts on the noontime show after his heartwarming message.
“Ikaw lang ang Pilipina na nakapansin ng halaga ko kaya thank you so much,” Ryan addressed his girlfriend after he was asked by his co-hosts why he was on the verge of tears.
