BEA Alonzo said she and boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo are living proof that showbiz personalities can have a successful career and at the same time, a happy love life.

For the longest time maniniwala na sana ako na mamimili ka kung career ba o love life. Kapag okay daw and love life, wala ka namang career. But puwede namang magsabay,” she said.

During the press conference of her newest primetime series with John Lloyd Cruz, the actress said that she’s having a “very beautiful affair” with Zanjoe.

She said that it is her most unforgettable and successful partnership by far. Bea said it’s not difficult to maintain a happy love life despite the kind of work she and the actor have. She said she’s thankful that Zanjoe is a very understanding boyfriend.

Siguro malaking bagay na pareho kaming artista at naiintindihan niya yung schedule ko. The more na hindi kami nagkikita, the more na mas nagiging sweet ‘yung relationship namin,” she added.

Bea said that behind the camera, they try to keep their relationship low profile and as much as possible, they choose what they reveal in public.

Mayroon din naman kaming hindi ipinagdadamot sa public kasi they deserve to know about it kasi we’re public figures. Natututunan namin yung art of being private and being public, nai-enjoy namin pareho,” she added.

Also, Bea clarified that she’s young and not yet ready to get married. “Masyado pa po akong bata para pag-isipan yan. Ideally, I’m going to get married mga 29 or 30.”

When she reaches the right age, Bea hopes Zanjoe will be the man she’ll exchange wedding vows with. “Baka masyado pa pong maaga para sabihin kong kami talaga, pero sana. I could only wish na maging kami talaga sa dulo.” (MNS)
