Since the turn of the year, actor Derek Ramsay and his girlfriend, model Joanne Villablanca, have been more vocal about their feelings for each other on Instagram.

It might be partly because of their promise to each other to make the most out of 2016.

“I promise to build a new world for us two, with you in the middle,” wrote Villablanca as the caption to a photo of her with Ramsay during their recent vacation to Palawan.

In another photo of them together posted on Tuesday, Villablanca told her boyfriend: “No way but up, love! Matira matibay. Love you always, Mr. Pakipot.”

For his part, Ramsay, in a screenshot of a comment he made on one of Villablanca’s posts, told his girlfriend: “I love you more, babe!”

Ramsay and Villablanca celebrated their first anniversary as a couple last January. The two have since been photographed together in public events, with Villablanca attending the premiere night of Ramsay’s film, “Love is Blind”.

In an earlier interview, Ramsay, who previously dated actresses Angelica Panganiban and Cristine Reyes, said that he wants his relationship with Villablanca to last.

“We enjoy each other’s company and we’re very much intrigued by each other —we want to know each other more,” Ramsay shared. “She supports the things I do and seems genuinely interested in them. There’s no pressure. And I love it.” (MNS)
