Before Angelica Panganiban was Mace on That Thing Called Tadhana and Mrs. Reyes on Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes, she was Gelai on G-mik, a youth oriented show in the late 90s to 00s. And it was on that show that she was paired with Carlo Aquino, her on-screen partner who later on became her boyfriend in real life for six years. Both were also put in a love team that became one of the hottest pairs at that time. Fast forward to almost two decades later and after a series of relationships with other people, both are single again. Could their latest Twitter exchanges mean that they’re open to rekindling their romance? Related: Angelica Panganiban Suffers Break-Up Blues?
Last night, February 6, a fan Tweeted to Angelica, “Madam, mahalin mo uli ang leading man ni bela @carloaquino11 @angelica_114 #CarGel.” Angelica replied by saying, “Hahahaha! Pag isipan ko.” The fan is referring to Carlo Aquino, who is the leading man of Bela Padilla in the recently-released film, Meet Me in St. Gallen.
The Tweet is just one of the several that implied romantic flirting between the two. Angelica also Tweeted recently, promoting a media outfit’s call for stories on exes just in time for this Valentine’s Day. “May surpresa kami. Wala kayo sa EX ko. Oo wala kayo sa EX ko! Mag log in na lang sa noink.ph.” Carlo replied, “Ah…uhhmm sinong Ex?” Angelica replied, “Haha! Sige, ikaw!”

Carlo also Tweeted a message that sent CarGel fans swooning last January 25. His message was, “Matalik na kaibigan, maari ba kitang matalik na pagibig?” A lot of netizens thought that his Tweet was for Angelica. Carlo explained to reporters afterward however, that he didn’t intend the Tweet for anyone. “Wala akong pinapatamaan o inaalayan ng Tweet na ‘yon. Random thought lang ‘yon kasi nga galing ako sa Panglao, yung ganoon,” he explained. He also denied being the one to have sent the anonymous bouquet of roses that Angelica posted on her Instagram stories a couple of weeks ago. Carlo has also told previous reports that he doesn’t really plan on pursuing Angelica for now because he wants to focus on the blessings he has been given, which includes his new movie with Padilla. The film has been garnering rave reviews from critics and fans.

Carlo just came from a break-up with a non-showbiz girlfriend recently, while Angelica’s last relationship was a couple of years ago with actor John Lloyd Cruz. Carlo has said in interviews before that he is open to working with Angelica, who has remained a good friend to him even after their break-up. In fact, the two have been spotted in Singapore last year watching a Coldplay concert with Carlo’s then girlfriend. Carlo has also admitted in recent interviews that Angelica is his “first love.” If ever there’s a chance for these two to get back together and finally find the right person for them, we’re sure many 90s kids and current fans would be cheering them on!
