Many Instagram users had a hard time keeping calm after Alexa Ilacad posted a sweet photo of herself with her onscreen partner Gab Lagman on Wednesday, August 18.
The photo, which Alexa uploaded on her Instagram page, shows her holding hands with Gab and was captioned with nothing but an infinity emoji.
In the comments section of her post, many fans gushed over the photo, with some speculating as to whether the two are dating in real life.
"Kayo na ba? Huhuhu," wrote one fan.
"'Yun oh, in real life din pala," another teased.
Alexa, 21, and Gab, 25, were paired onscreen for the first time in the ABS-CBN sexy-drama series Init Sa Magdamag, which is nearing its finale.
Although they have yet to address rumors romantically linking them, the onscreen couple just recently referred to each other as good friends in a joint interview for the morning talk show Magandang Buhay.
"Nagkakasundo kami as friends. Nandoon 'yung respect. Nandoon 'yung boundaries. So nandoon lahat ng foundation for a good friendship," said Alex.
The two agreed that they also work well together as actors.
"Nakita naman po ni Gab na willing ako lagi tumulong sa kanya or to just be there for him, um-assist sa kanya, umalalay sa kanya. Pati sa personal life namin outside work, ganoon din ako sa kanya," added Alexa.
Gab, for his part, said: "Actually we really became good friends. Magaling kasi mag-advise on and off. I really appreciate her. I really enjoy working with her talaga."
