- Jasmine Curtis-Smith is currently dating Jeff Ortega, a businessman/surfer based in La Union
- Her sister, Anne Curtis, said that she approves of their relationship since Jeff also took the time to woo the family
- Jasmine was formerly in a relationship with actor/singer Sam Concepcion before they split in January 2015
It has been six months since Jasmine Curtis-Smith admitted on national television that she is dating Jeff Ortega, a businessman and surfer from La Union.
The two have been almost inseparable - they have been posting pictures of each other on their respective Instagram accounts.
It cannot be denied that Jasmine looks glowing than ever, which her sister Anne Curtis can see and vouch for.
When the Curtis sisters were interviewed by Vice Ganda on his show 'Gandang Gabi Vice', Anne said that not only did Jeff court her sister but the whole family as well.
She reiterated her point on the episode of 'Magandang Buhay' yesterday, adding that Jeff passed their standards to become Jasmine's boyfriend.
"Yes, very much boto kami ni Mommy, Daddy. Kasi ume-effort sa family, which is very important," she said.
(Yes, me, my mother and my father are in favor of Jeff. He really makes an effort to get to know the family, which is very important.)
That also means Anne does not harbor any ill feelings towards Jeff since she has given them their blessing.
"I think bilang ate, you really look for someone who respects the family, makes an effort to know the family — and yun ang nakita namin sa kanya," she added.

(I think as a sister, you really look for someone who respects the family, makes an effort to know the family - and that's what we saw with Jeff.)
Their most recent photo together was when they attended the 50th anniversary of Jeff's parents at Sto. Domingo Church.
The two also had a double with Anne and her long-time boyfriend Erwann Heussaff. The couple pairs spent some time together before they attended the wedding of Isabelle Daza and Adrien Semblat.
Isabelle's wedding might have been one of the grandest celebrity weddings of the year, but this Chinese couple had a unique one due to what they received as presents.
