Fans and showbiz watchers are always on the lookout for romantic surprises among celebrity sweethearts every Valentine’s Day. Dinner dates, out of town trips, and exchanges of sweet and thoughtful messages on social media are the most common scenarios we see during this much-anticipated occasion.
But aside from raving and feeling envious about all these mushy surprises, it’s also interesting to know the simplest and most low-key, yet heart-fluttering surprises other stars pulled off on Valentine’s Day.
Edward Barber is one of those guys who wants to keep it simple and special. At a young age, he already knows exactly how to make his family and friends feel loved and valued with his sincere ways, especially when it comes to Maymay Entrata.
In an exclusive interview of Inside Showbiz with Edward on Sunday night, February 18, we asked him how he surprised Maymay on Valentine’s.
“‘Yung sa Valentine’s Day?” he said softly with a smile on his face.
“I knew we weren’t be able to celebrate on the day itself because of taping and work. So the day before Valentine’s, on the 13th, I gave it to her,” Edward said, referring to his gift to Maymay.
Edward gave Maymay a charm which the actress posted on her Instagram account. Maymay didn’t caption the photo, but many assumed that it was given by her dearest Edward.
Edward said that the reason why he opted to buy Maymay a charm for Valentine’s is because she had lost her favorite one that she bought in Paris. “Actually nawala ‘yung isang charm nya. ‘Yung pinaka favorite nyang charm na binili nya sa Paris. There was a fight scene in La Luna so [she removed that charm because] she didn’t want it to fall off. So she put it in her bag and then it got lost after,” he shared.
Many young actors his age will probably get their special someone a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates on Valentine’s, but Edward did something really different. He considered Mamay’s feelings and gave her a new charm like as if he had given back the one she lost.
“Kasi she was sad she lost her favorite charm. She was super upset about it,” he said.
“Actually, I was planning to give this [new] one for her concert. But I think it fits with the occasion (Valentine’s) that’s why I gave it to her,” he added.
Since the two of them are always together almost everyday, it’s quite difficult to a keep a secret from each other. So we asked Edward how he planned his surprise without Maymay knowing it.
“I didn’t it have the charm with me, my mom hid it because of course she’s not gonna look at my mom’s things. She might look through mine,” he laughs.
Contrary to popular belief, the book of fairy tales does not stop beyond the threshold of childhood. In fact, the beckoning of a once-upon-a-time and far-off daydreaming not only persist, they thrive and get bigger and bolder as time goes by. Sure, there are proverbial dragons to slay, but in the end, the true heroes or dare we say, heroines, shine brighter and stronger because come on, do we expect anything less? .

“I hid it to my mom and then when I was about to give it to May I said ‘Okay mom, this is the time. I’m gonna give it to her.’ So I took it, I went to her and gave it,” he revealed.
Edward said that his gift comes with an advice. Something that he wants Maymay to take into heart.
“Before giving it, I told her ‘I know you’re upset at the moment, but remember, just because you lose something doesn’t mean you can’t gain something else. Hindi ibig sabihin na may nawala, wala nang darating na bago.”
“Kasi the reason why Maymay loves her charms so much is not because of the [design of the] charms or who gave it, but it’s because of the memory they hold. So when she lost that charm she bought in Paris, I know she feels like she lost the memory of her first time in Paris. So I gave her a new one to remind her that not because the charm is gone doesn’t mean the memories are gone, too,” Edward ended.
Just like in fairytales, Edward sure knows how to make his princess happy.
If there is anything we learned from the fairy tales of youth it is that with enough courage, dreams and a lot of heart, nothing is impossible. In fact, it is in believing in the fairy tale that accords us with a chance to live out our very own happy ending—whatever they may be. .

She stands up, choosing to stay with her prince. Together, conspicuous patches of color against the dreary backdrop of snow, they move forward. The princess takes one last glance to the land of frost from which she came from. The prince stops and turns to her, his expression affectionate and sincere. Silently, a pact is made: whatever may happen in the future, they move forward together… And they lived happily ever after. . #Vivo7Plus #MEGAVivoMoments #MakingMEGAwithMaymay #MakingMEGAinGermany #MegaIGtorial @vivophil
