Actor Diego Loyzaga has finally opened up about his relationship with actress Barbie Imperial.
In the January 5 episode of "Magandang Buhay," Diego admitted that he's courting Barbie.
"Last time, Tita, tinanong mo siya rito eh. Tapos ang sabi niya, nagpaparamdam ako sa kanya, 'di ba. Napanood ko. So ngayon, nililigawan ko na siya," he said, referring to Barbie.
Diego's admittance comes days after he and Barbie confirmed their romance via a social media post.
For his part, Diego posted a photo of him with Barbie on New Year's Day and thanked the actress for "making the end of my 2020 memorable."
Barbie, on the other hand, said she didn't expect to fall in love with Diego.
Sharing a photo of her with the actor, taken during their date at a museum in Rizal, the actress wrote: "Still my favorite photo of us.
"Totally unexpected to fall for someone I thought I’d be just friends with forever but I’m really happy to have found both love & friendship with this one. Thank you for making me happy & feel loved. Thank you for everything that you do to make me feel the love I deserve. So thankful for you, thank God for you," she added.
The two first sparked rumors of a romance in November, when Diego left a comment on Barbie's bikini photo on Instagram.
In the same month, Barbie confirmed that Diego was courting her during a guest appearance on "Magandang Buhay."
