In this modern age of temptations and uncertainties, how actors Dianne Medina and Rodjun Cruz found one another is an inspiring love story that’s one in a million. It all started when the two met each other back in 2007. They were still both under the contract of Star Magic, ABS-CBN’s exclusive talent management arm.
“Pareho kami n’un sa Star Magic. Prior to that napanood na daw niya ko sa ‘Wazzup Wazzup’.”
“Sabe niya crush daw niya ko. I was 19 then. N’ung time na ‘yun crush ko din siya.”
Rodjun and Diane would cross path every now and then and occasionally worked with each other on several ABS CBN shows during those years. But it was not until when two went under the same handler and manager that they finally found one another.
“During that time, itinatago pa namin kasi bawal sa Star Magic ‘yun eh.”
“Wala namang gan’ung rule talaga pero ‘yung handler ko na lang din ang mismong may ayaw para iwas sa mga mag-aaway-away, eh bata pa.”
“Siyempre trabaho muna.“
As time passed by, Cruz and Medina became really good friends. It was after three months into their friendship that they finally stepped up and officially became a couple.
But their more than a decade old love story was not always too smooth, like many of us would think. Many are skeptical with their new found love to each other and some even said that it would only be a matter of time before the two will call it quits.
“Marami ring mga taong may ayaw, may mga iba tinging three months lang kami, ‘yung iba naman one year lang, so nakakatuwa lang na umabot kami ng up to ten years.”
Being together for such a long time now, Dianne stressed out the she had finally found “the one” in Rodjun
“I’ve invested so much time and emotion. I wouldn’t stay kung wala akong nakikitang future (if I don’t see any future),”
The couple took their relationship another step further when they became engaged last 2017 in the sandy beaches of Boracay. But the wedding had to wait when an unfortunate event struck the Cruz family. Rodjun and Rayver’s mother pass3d away last February of this year, 2019, due to pancreatic c4ncer.
Despite of their heavy loss, life goes on for Rodjun and Dianne. The couple just celebrated their twelfth year into their relationship last July 23. Through her social media account, the TV host-actress marked the milestone by posting a sweet anniversary greeting for Rodjun.
“12 YEARS Today! Happy anniversary! Love you so much, Forever and ever,”
As of the moment, the couple are still in the process of preparing of their anticipated wedding. According to source, the event is tentatively to hapened around this December. Dianne said she’s not really into a glamourous and expensive wedding prepation.
“Kahit simple lang, okay lang ako,”
“Basta si Rodjun ang gusto kong partner in life.”
“As long as happy lang iyong wedding, as long as iyong purpose ay nandoon. Promise, wala akong arte!”
Currently, the long-time couple is still gearing up for their highly anticipated wedding, which they tentatively agreed to hold this coming December, according to a previous interview.
“Kahit simple lang, okay lang ako,” shared Dianne of their wedding plans. “Basta si Rodjun ang gusto kong partner in life. As long as happy lang iyong wedding, as long as iyong purpose ay nandoon. Promise, wala akong arte!”
