Erich Gonzales ties knot with business mogul, Mateo Rafael Lorenzo
Celebrated Filipina actress signed to Kapamilya, Erich Gonzales has finally tied the knot with business man, Mateo Rafael Lorenzo, after years of dating.
The lovebirds married in a grand wedding today in Philippines at the Metro Manila Church.
The wedding was announced in a “marriage banns” bulletin board in a church in Metro Manila, which was spotted by fans.
While Gonzales never confirmed the news, netizans were quick to congratulate the actress, sending their advance well-wishes for the soon-to-be married couple.
Speculations about Gonzales’ status began in 2018 when she described her relationship status as “single but not available.”
The actress later confirmed that she has a non-showbiz suitor and that they went to Japan together.
Gonzales didn’t name the man but revealed that he is the brother of Claudia Barretto’s boyfriend, Basti Lorenzo.
Ever since, Gonzales has managed to keep a cloud of privacy over her love life. The actress has not posted anything on social media that would heavily suggest that she’s dating.
But as it turns out, there’s a reason why she has chosen to keep silent about it. “I think it’s for the best,” she told a fan in her Q&A vlog in 2019.
“I want to protect something so precious to me, something beautiful. I don’t want to ruin it,” she added.
Known privately as Erika Chryselle Gonzales Gancayco, she is a contract artist of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic and started her showbiz career at the age of 14, as a contestant of the reality talent search Star Circle Quest.
Although she shot to prominence in her lead role Katorse in the year 2009 but became popular in many African countries especially Ghana after her role in the Blood Sisters as the triplets who were raised away from their biological mother.
She has starred in many movies including La Vida Lena.
