MANILA, Mar 10 (Mabuhay) –Barbie Forteza has revealed that she considered boyfriend Jak Roberto her “lucky charm.”

The actress said she noticed how her career grew since they became official.

“Feeling ko siya yung lucky charm ko kasi parang ever since naging kami, parang nagtuloy-tuloy din talaga ’yung magagandang opportunities ko. Parang medyo dumami yung inquiries, dumami ’yung work, kaya talagang nakakatuwa,” she said.

“Hindi lang sa akin. Kahit sa kanya. Busy na rin siya ngayon,” she added.

Barbie is currently in the drama “Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday,” which is set to air its last episodes starting Monday.

“Nakakalungkot na matatapos na siya kasi gano’n na kalaki at karami yung pinagsamahan namin sa show. Not just the cast pero pati yung mga staff, talagang parang naging pamilya,” she said.

Aside from “All Out Sundays,” she is also set to star in the new season of “I Can See You” with Paul Salas.

“Reunion namin bilang nagkasama na kami sa ‘Kara Mia’ before,” she said.

In November 2020, Barbie and Jak were named the new faces of a skincare and cosmetics brand.

They confirmed their relationship to the public in 2017 and marked their fourth Christmas together in 2020. (MNS)
