Surfing champion Philmar Alipayo, the partner of actress Andi Eigenmann, is now part of Viva Artists Agency (VAA).
VAA made the announcement on its social media pages on Wednesday, April 28.
"We are glad to announce that Philmar Alipayo is now part of our growing family," it said.
"Welcome to Viva, Philmar!" it added.
Philmar is considered as one of the best surfers in the country, after making history as the first winner of the Philippine Surfing Championship Tour in the men's division in 2017.
Currently, he has more than 375,000 followers on his Instagram account and almost 400,000 followers on his public Facebook page.
Philmar and Andi met three years ago, while the latter was taking a break on the island paradise of Siargao, the actress revealed in a previous interview.
"Nung first time ko siyang na-meet ay nilapitan ko siya at nagpa-picture ako kasi siya iyong number one sa Philippine surfing last year," recalled Andi.
"Ever since we would talk and chat," she shared. "Hindi ko in-expect talaga. Sabi ko nga, 'Itatanong pa ba iyon?' Ang sarap-sarap ma in-love kapag nasa paradise ka.”
After becoming a couple, the two welcomed their first child together, Lilo, in 2019.
They got engaged early this year, before welcoming their second child together, Koa.
