Nikki Gil happily shared with ABS-CBN.com that even if Billy Crawford was busy doing a concert tour in the States with Sarah Geronimo, he was still able to give her a surprise greeting during her graduation party last March 29. “Nagpadala siya ng flowers through a friend and there was also a video greeting. So he made sure that he was present in at least some other form. I appreciate that. I don’t know [kung anong ibibigay niya sa aking gift], let’s ask him,” she grinned. The young host-actress couldn’t help but miss having him around though. “Well we all miss him, everyone in ASAP [misses him] because he's so loud and he’s very funny,” she simply stated.
Ever since people started wondering about their relationship last year, the two have been vague about the real score between them. This has raised a lot of speculations as to what is stopping them from entering a serious relationship when it’s obvious that they really get along with each other. “Timing. It’s all about timing. I’ve always been ready for it so tignan na lang natin,” she maintained.
When asked if Billy’s alleged marriage with former French choreographer Maryss is the real reason why they can’t be together yet, Nikki was quick to defend the Fil-Am singer against such rumors. “No, I just think that I am not in a position to say that because ako yung babae eh. So parang let’s just leave it at that. If there’s anything that needs to be said, I’m sure he’ll deal with it when he gets back. But I don’t take it against him. It’s part of his past. I don’t see anything wrong about it. I’m not bothered because I heard about it before. Give the guy a break, kawawa naman siya. He's trying to change that impression of him as someone who plays around so let’s cut him some slack,” she stressed.
And the fact that Billy is making an effort to stay longer here in the Philippines only means that he’s really serious about Nikki, who has always been firm on her traditional take on courtship and commitment. “Well there's really no formula naman kasi ‘di ba? So we just have to see and hope [that things will work out between us]. I’m happy [with the news that he has renewed his contract with ABS-CBN] kasi he has plans. Everything naman that he does is calculated. I trust that he knows what he's doing,” she confidently said.
