Marlon Stockinger admitted to ABS-CBN News reporter Dyan Castillejo that he was surprised when Pia Wurtzbach confirmed that they’re officially dating.
"I didn't expect it. But yeah, sobrang kilig... for her to say that," he said.
Aside from Pia’s beauty, Marlon also fell in love with her wit, humor, her eyes and her honesty.
"It's so easy to like Pia. She has been perfect. What you see is what you get. She is 100% real.”
Marlon also said that they knew each other for some years now through common friends but it was during his trip to New York last September 2015 that they got to know each other better.
With their busy schedules, the Fil-Swiss race car driver expressed his support on Pia’s work with the Miss Universe Organization.
"In the last few days she is busy and I understand that... Whatever she wants to do, I understand. She's busy now and I'm happy for her success. I'm sure she would also do the same for me.”
In reference to the beauty queen saying “Marlon is mine” during her interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda, Marlon remarked, “Pia is also mine.”
