KAPAMILYA actor James Reid has revealed that he sought the permission of Nadine Lustre’s parents before he proposed to the actress.
Reid made the revelation in “Tonight with Boy Abunda” aired over ABS-CBN recently.
Abunda, host of the late-night show, lauded Reid for his kind gestures to Lustre’s parents. “Despite the fact that he grew up in Australia, gusto ko ’yung elemento na nagpaalam s’ya sa magulang bago manligaw at mag-propose. I like that.”
Asia’s King of Talk had earlier believed that Reid and Lustre were playing sweet music together after a viral photo of the popular love team showed them holding hands while sleeping on the plane.
“Iba ’yung hawak ng mga kamay nila,” said Abunda when he commented on the photo.
The stars of the hit prime time teleserye “On the Wings of Love” officially became a couple on Feb. 11. Reid made a public declaration of his love to Lustre at the “JaDine Love” concert held last Feb. 20.
“I didn’t expect it… that he will say that habang nakatutok ang buong mundo and in front of the JaDine fans,” Lustre said.
Reid said: “That’s how I feel about her. I can be 100 percent with my silly, weird thing that I am with her.” He added that they initially became best friends.
The Filipino-Australian actor said that he really planned to propose to Lustre during the concert.
But Reid felt that Feb. 11 would be the best time for him to propose while they were having dinner.
Reid told Lustre that he was different when in love. When Lustre asked Reid if he was in love, he said yes.
Reid’s public declaration to Lustre trended on social media. Among the couples guests in their sell-out concert were Elmo Magalona, Yassi Pressman, and Vice Ganda.
JaDine will soon embark on a world tour after their successful concert. Later they will also shoot another teleserye for the Kapamilya network.
