Beauty queen-turned-actress Bianca Manalo, one of the stars of the hit primetime series “On The Wings of Love,” confirmed her rumored relationship with Brazilian-Japanese model Fabio Ide.
The 27-year-old Manalo admitted that she has been seeing Ide for more than a month now.
“Actually ‘nung lumalabas kami as friends, tinanong niya ko na okay lang ba sa [akin] na magka-boyfriend na showbiz? Sabi ko pa, ‘hindi. Ayoko na.’ Ayan kinain ko ‘yung sinabi ko,” she said.
Manalo was formerly in a relationship with Kapamilya actor John Prats. The two broke up in 2012.
Meanwhile, Ide, in an interview with the same program, said that he feels “really happy” to be with Manalo.
“We’re really trying to take care of each other and enjoy good time slowly we’re getting to know more about each other as a couple. And it’s good. It’s a good feeling. Masarap ‘yung feeling na ‘yun eh,” he added. (MNS)
