Actress Maymay Entrata surprised her fans and showbiz colleagues on Valentine's Day when she took to social media to finally introduce her boyfriend.
On Instagram, the "Amakabogera" singer shared a photo of herself cozying up to her beau, who seems to be a foreigner. It had the short caption: "Happy Birthday my Valentino."
The snap was immediately flooded with hundreds of comments from Maymay's followers, including her friends from showbiz, who all expressed their happiness for the actress.
"Ganyarn!!!! Happy Valentines," said Angelica Panganiban.
"OMG!!! Hala! Ngiga sa pagkagwapa sa akong miga oi! Grabe man na. Maka happy mana miga! Happy Vday miga!" wrote Kim Chiu.
Others who reacted to the photo included Maja Salvador, Janella Salvador, Dimples Romana, Bianca Gonzalez, Elisse Joson, McCoy de Leon, Chie Filomeno, Jayda Avanzado, and Mimiyuuuh.
It was in April last year when Maymay, 24, first opened up about the current state of her heart in an interview with fashion magazine Mega.
“Sa totoo lang po may nagpapasaya na po sa aking puso at naway kahit anong maging desisyon namin ay respetuhin po yun ng aking mga taga-suporta," she said.
She made a similar admission in July 2021, when she addressed rumors romantically linking her to her onscreen partner Edward Barber, as well as actor Donny Pangilinan, on the talk show Hotspot.
"Hindi ako in a relationship kay Donny or kay Edward man... Wala po kahit sino sa showbiz, wala," she said at the time.
"Nagpapasalamat din ako sa lahat talaga ng mga fan na kumbaga kahit di ako nage-effort na pasayahin kayo, pinapasaya niyo ang sarili niyo. Joke, sorry. Naa-appreciate ko 'yon at natutuwa lang din naman ako. Pero para maging clear ang lahat hindi ako kay Donny. Wala pong kahit sino sa showbiz na in a relationship ako."
The actress went on to clarify that the person who is now making her happy isn't from the industry.
"Nabanggit ko na naman po ito sa isang magazine na may nagpapasaya sa akin. Opo. Hanggang doon na lang. Basta wala sa showbiz," she said then.
