Pia Wurtzbach says her relationship with Marlon Stockinger is going strong.
After passing on the crown earlier this year at the Miss Universe pageant, Pia Wurtzbach admitted she is still in the process of settling back in the country after living abroad during her reign. “I’m still adjusting to the afterlife of Miss Universe but I will get there. Right now though slowly but surely naglipat bahay pa ako. I’m just slowly unpacking my stuff. It’s 20 boxes. Some of my friends are teasing me that I hoard clothes but I really don’t. The clothes that I wore in Miss Universe, inipon ko sila. And I put everything in boxes and I had them sent here to the Philippines because I’m actually planning on doing like a garage sale or an auction and then for each garment I’m going to label for which event I used it as Miss Universe and then all the proceeds I kind of want to give back to Cagayan de Oro since I never had the chance to do a homecoming there. So it will be my way of giving back,” she shared during the Downy #NeverFade event held last March 8 in Taguig city.
The 27-year-old Downy endorser also said her relationship with Filipino-Swiss racecar driver Marlon Stockinger is going strong. “We’re happy. I really don’t understand why people would have anything bad to say about us because I think we’re just a reflection of every other couple there is out there and we’re happy. I think being a beauty queen or being a Miss Universe, hindi naman distraction yun. Kasi I’ve always been dedicated to my job and I still am. And he’s the same. So if anything, we’re just pushing each other to be the best that we can be,” she said.
When asked to comment about a supposed rumor that Marlon is already a father to twins, Pia said it’s the first time she’s heard about it. “Are you sure it’s the same Marlon? There’s a lot of Marlons. Huh? I don’t know anything about that,” she said.
After admitting they were a couple in January, Pia said it will still be a while before they discuss marriage. “Oh no we haven’t talked about that. I’m not thinking about that as well. I’m very career-driven. My focus right now is my work. Marami pa akong gustong ma-achieve sa trabaho s wala pa yun. Bata pa ako,” she admitted.
As one of the country’s most beautiful faces, Pia says she is lucky to find the man who makes her feel loved. “(He makes me feel special) everyday. Malambing naman siya. Mas malambing siya sa akin (laughs),” she added
