A lot may be focused on the possible end of their marriage, but here’s a timeline on the “against the world” romance between Heart and Chiz over the years: 

2012: Two paths collide

In an interview with Kris Aquino’s then talk show, the politician revealed that he and Heart are officially and exclusively dating. Pressed by the talk show host, Chiz shared that Heart just came into her life through the late lawyer-slash-politician Miriam Defensor-Santiago. He pointed out that Heart’s entrance into his life was “very refreshing.”

During this time, Chiz has finalized his annulment with his first wife, and Heart and ex-boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga had broken up. 

2013: Against all odds

With the news of the two dating, the parents of the actress did not seem too keen about it. After a lengthy explanation through a press conference on why they did not approve of the politician for their daughter, the actress went on national television through GMA’s Hot TV to address her parents’ statement. 

Anak mo ‘ko, pamilya tayo. Tama na, Mom. […] Lahat tayo nasasaktan,” Heart pleaded to her mother. 

Chiz also spoke up about the allegations thrown at him, and negated the issues brought up by Heart’s parents.

2014: Promise of forever

Following the rough patch that the couple faced the previous year, Chiz finally decided to solidify his commitment to Heart with a surprise engagement at his ancestral home in Sorsogon. Lovi Poe and Alessandra De Rossi, Heart’s friends in show business, witnessed this momentous event.

2015: Start of forever

After three years of dating, Heart and Chiz finally tied the knot on February 15, a day after the actress’ birthday, with the wedding being held in Balesin. Both Heart and Chiz declared in their vows that they were each other’s one true love. 

2018: On loves lost

Another three years down the line, the couple faced yet another challenge in their marriage—the natural miscarriage of their twins. Heart penned a heartfelt letter to her late daughter, Mira, on Instagram. 

In the second episode of “Adulting With Chiz” on Heart’s YouTube channel, the couple opened up about how they dealt with the loss of their children. According to the two, they helped each other cope by making sure that when one was in a state of grief, one had to do the consoling. 

2022: Two different paths?

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that, while Heart was with Chiz during the GMA Ball, she was not in her usual happy disposition. This began the circulation of separation rumors, despite the happy moments the couple shared previous months ago, which consisted of actively joining the campaign of Chiz in different areas, as well as her attendance at the SONA.
