MANILA – Who will be the ABS-CBN Ball 2018 couples?
The ABS-CBN annual Star Magic Ball is one of the biggest gatherings of stars in the Philippine entertainment industry. The ball specially exclusive for talents from Star Magic, the talent management arm of ABS-CBN, thus the name “Star Magic Ball.”
This year, however, the network has changed the name into “ABS-CBN Ball” and will now feature all talents of the station irrespective of their talent management. This means that big stars like Angel Locsin, James Reid and Nadine Lustre, among others will also be gracing the red carpet.
Aside from the big stars attending the event, fans also anticipate the wardrobes of their favorite celebrities; while others are excited to know who will be going to the ball with whom.
So who are the confirmed couples for this year’s ABS-CBN Ball?
1. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel)
Fresh from the box office success of their newest movie, The Hows of Us, and admission that they have been a couple for five years, KathNiel (a moniker for their love team) will once again grace the red carpet as one.
2. Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino (CarGel)
The relationship between these two Kapamilya talents is a testament that exes can be friends, too. At least in their case. These former love team reunites in their latest movie Exes Baggage.
Last year, Panganiban went solo flight, while Aquino was in absentia.
3. Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil (LizQuen)
This couple has been one of the much-anticipated attendees in the annual ball. Ever since these got paired as a love team, they have been each other’s constant dates in the ball. Fans also get excited with Soberano’s stunning red carpet look and Gil’s dapper outfit.
4. Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo (AshMatt)
Wish granted for the fans of this real life sweethearts. AshMatt will be finally gracing the red carpet as a couple in this year’s ball. Last year, Guidicelli went solo because Geronimo, accordingly, had prior commitments. Rumors have it, however, that the Pop star has been forbidden to go to the ball because she is not a Star Magic talent.
5. Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto (JoshLia)
This will be the third year in a row that the Ngayon at Kailanman stars are gracing the ball as each other’s dates. Their spark in their series and movies also radiates in their red carpet appearance. Last year, these two love birds could take their eyes (and hands) off each other!
6. Edward Barber and Maymay Entrata (MayWard)
Despite being a freshie last year, Maymay Entrata proved she’s no newbie to big events like the Star Magic Ball. She was even voted as one of the best-dressed celebrities for the night. Of course, with a handsome date like Edward, it was a double win for Maymay!
7. Xian Lim and Kim Chiu (KimXi)
Every year, fans of these two love birds always anticipate to see, not just their red carpet looks, but also how will Xian ask Kim to be his date in the ball.
Fans were apprehensive if a KimXi will be a sighted in the red carpet once again this year, especially, that Lim has left the Star Magic management. The Miss Granny actor, however, eased their fans and confirmed that he will be attending this year’s ball after he posted a photo of him checking his suit for the ball on Instagram.
8. James Reid and Nadine Lustre (JaDine)
Another wish from fans was granted. Following the lifted exclusivity of the ball to Star Magic artists, couple James Reid and Nadine Lustre will finally grace the event.
9. Donny Pangilinan and Kisses Delavin (DonKiss)
Newcomers Donny and Kisses are confirmed to be each other’s dates in this year’s ABS-CBN ball. Last year, Kisses graced the red carpet with her former love team Marco Gallo.
