Brazilian-Japanese actor Daniel Matsunaga believes in forever with girlfriend Erich Gonzales.
Daniel Matsunaga and actress Erich Gonzales have officially been together since last year. The two have started out as good friends when Kris Aquino introduced them to each other during her Kris TV Palawan episode two years ago. Since then, they have gotten even closer when they also met for Two Wives.
Erich was still with her non-showbiz boyfriend at the time so the two remained friends. When Erich became single, Daniel didn’t immediately court her. Early last year, however, the two have started posting sweet photos together on their social media accounts, which confirmed their fans’ theories that they were already together.
Early this year, the real life couple had the opportunity to work together for the romantic comedy television show “Be My Lady.”
According to Daniel, because of this show, their “relationship is going stronger.” He added, “Every day we get to spend time with each other especially because of taping. Going stronger and the more I get to know her better, the more I fall in love. Always masaya, always supporting each other, and we always care for each other, either ups and down pa ‘yan.”
Daniel also said that he has plans on leveling up his relationship with Erich because “I believe in forever.”
When asked if he will enact these plans very soon, he said: “For now, depende sa show namin, work muna!” (For now, it depends on our show, work first!)
Daniel plays the Singaporean character ‘Phil’ in Be My Lady while Erich is the nurse ‘Pinang.’ In the TV show, Phil tries to make amends with Pinang’s mother (Janice De Belen) and also tries to capture the heart of Pinang.
Since their show has been extended until October this year, it looks like Daniel will have to postpone any level up plans he has.
