Aga Muhlach, Charlene Gonzales Never Became Boyfriend, GirlfriendAga Muhlach has revealed that he and wife Charlene Gonzales skipped the boyfriend-girlfriend stage in their relationship.
In an interview with HOLA! magazine, Muhlach said that he and Gonzales went straight from being friends to being engaged.
“She was never my girlfriend. We got engaged first,” the actor said. However, he said that he did ask the parents of Charlene for their daughter’s hand in marriage.
The couple were married on May 28, 2001 and have been together since.
In the interview published in the November 2013 issue of the magazine, Muhlach said that she met Gonzales when “she as 11 and I was 16” through a cousin.
It would be years after their first meeting that the two would meet again. Muhlach was asked to judge Binibining Pilipinas 1994, the year Gonzales won the title and went on to compete in the Miss Universe beauty pageant.
After this second meeting, Muhlach and Gonzales, who now have two children, did the hit ABS-CBN sitcom “Oki Doki Doc”.
Doing the show together, the two became friends. “It was just like that; we were just friends,” Muhlach said.
Aga also shared the eureka moment when he realized Charlene was “the one” for him.
“It was just one moment of realizing that right in front of me was my wife. A week after that, I proposed to her,” he said.
Showing the romantic side of him, Muhlach said that to this very day, he feels like the “luckiest guy on earth” for having a wife who is “so loyal”.
“When I married, I really settled down... I love that feeling when I come home from work and my wife is there to celebrate my blessings with me,” he further said.
The couple with their kids Atasha and Andres live in Batangas in a house Muhlach said was the first home he built after getting married and is his “space” and “home”.
