Athletes pay tribute to their beloved halves on Valentine's
Happy Valentines' Day!

It's once again a Happy Hearts Day for couples all around the world, and it couldn't be any happier for our beloved athletes.

For all of us, including them, they would not be in their position if it were not for the loving support of their other halves.

So, let's take a look at how they sent love through the broad world of social media this Valentine's Day. 

Gabe Norwood, Rain or Shine Elasto Painters

The Rain or Shine veteran and Gilas mainstay paid tribute to his wife, Lei, by signifying that they have put the Almighty in the center of their relationship.

"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians‬ ‭3:14‬

Happy Valentines Day everyone, especially you @lei_norwood," said the Fil-Am swingman. 

Simone Rota, Davao Aguilas/Philippine Azkals 

The 34-year old midfielder of the Azkals expressed his love for his beau, model Angel Jones, in none other than his native tongue.

Rota, a Filipino-Italian, reminded Jones that it is indeed one of the most romantic days of the year.

"Pssst it s San Valentine," he simply said in the post.

Joe Devance, Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel Gin Kings 

One of the more active Philippine sports personalities on social media is back at it again, not missing the opportunity to express his love for his wife, Monica.

The stretch forward also tells of his undying love for his wife, as he would not rest telling his love for her over again and again.

"Happy Valentines Day to my beautiful wife to be. I say “to be” because I feel like im getting married all over again everyday! I love you my Last of the Mohican Warrior Aztec Queen of my heart!!!! @monica_devance," Joe proudly said.

Mark Caguioa,  Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel Gin Kings 

One of the most popular PBA players today, though nursing a foot injury, will not let the opportunity pass to show his love for his special someone.

The 39-year old guard took to Instagram to show his affection for his long-time girlfriend, Lauren Hudson. He proposed to her after a 12-year relationship in Game 6 of the 2016 PBA Governors' Cup Finals, where Ginebra ended an eight-year long drought.

Caguioa showed a realistic caricature of the lovely couple with nothing but love expressed in emojis.

Robert Bolick and Aby Maraño, NorthPort Batang Pier and F2 Logistics Cargo Movers

One of the more famous basketball-volleyball couples are at it again. 

Robert Bolick's funny antics were not in display as he wholly expressed his love for his long-time girlfriend, Tyang Aby. 

In the post, the #3 pick of the recently-concluded PBA Rookie Draft is seen kissing the shoulders of Maraño at a beach in a sunset. It doesn't get more romantic than that.


Happy Valentines day!!! ❤️❤️❤️
