Some celebrities choose partners who aren’t in the show business industry to keep their love life out of the limelight. We often don’t hear about these people compared to relationships wherein both are celebrities. The same could be said about Erich Gonzales’ husband, who majority of people only know as the “persistent and consistent” suitor of the actress.
