Jerome Ponce went to "Tonight with Boy Abunda" seemingly ready to answer questions about his relationship with volleyball star Mika Reyes — even a few saucy ones.
To begin, he didn't hold back when he was asked to confirm if they were already a couple. For the first time on television, Ponce, echoing what he had already confessed in a previous online interview, said: "'Hindi ko naman kailangan i-deny. Yeah, it's a yes."
He also talked about whether their tight schedules — him being an actor and Reyes having an active playing career — affect their set-up at all: "Mayroon po kasi akong pananaw na kapag gusto mo ay magagawan at magagawan ng paraan. Kung hindi talaga kaya, maiintindihan at maiintindihan niya iyon."
Things then got a little teasy, during the talk show's "Fast Talk" segment, when Ponce had to name his favorite part of his girlfriend's body. "Her armpit," he gamely said.
Ponce first revealed his relationship with Reyes last month, saying that he is "proud" to be her boyfriend.
Asked what makes Reyes special, Ponce said: "Hindi ko na in-expect na may taong kayang maging ganun para sa akin. Kumbaga kaya niya mag-stay despite of all the wrong sa akin."
In a previous interview, Ponce said he met the former De La Salle University athlete through common friends when she appeared on "ASAP."
Rumors about a blossoming relationship between the two started late last year after Ponce and Reyes were spotted together on various occasions and in different places.
