As an actor, Sam Milby spends most of his days in the spotlight. However, he has admitted that when it comes to his personal life, he prefers to keep things under wraps.
"Yung mga experiences ko dati na sinasabi ko agad (In the past, when I was quick to share) about my personal life and then sometimes it doesn’t work out, wala. Normally it doesn’t work out that way. I want to share when it’s the right time. If people want to think that I’m in a relationship or not in a relationship, that’s fine. I’ve been keeping that part of my life very personal and ayaw ko pang i-share, yun lang. Wala, ayaw ko lang i-share. In the future naman I’ll share.”
As such, not much is known about his love life, and there are plenty of rumors on the topic. The latest on the grapevine is that he is dating an unknown Japanese-British blogger.
He is also rumored to be dating 2014’s Miss Universe Philippines MJ Lastimosa. However, he has already denied this and stated that they are just acquaintances. Their mutual friendship with John Prats and Isabel is the reason behind their seemingly frequent hang outs.
Pia Wurtzbach is vocal about her crush on the celebrity. As a result, many wonder why Sam has not taken this opportunity to pursue her. Sam admits that he does find her crush on him flattering, and that he finds Pia attractive, kind and genuine. However, he believes that if he does pursue her, it should be out of sincerity, not seemingly because of her crown.
“Well parehas kaming may relasyon nung noon pa … But [also,] ayoko naman sabihin na dahil Miss U na siya tapos liligawan ko siya. Hindi dapat ganun eh. if I want to go for her it would be taos puso hindi dahil, parang dahil lang Miss Universe siya.”
(Well, we were both in different relationships back then … but I also don’t want to imply that I’m only going to court her now that she’s Miss U. It shouldn’t be like that. If I want to go for her it would be sincerely, not now just because she’s Miss Universe.)
With so many beautiful women linked to the Doble Kara star, he clarifies that it isn’t true he doesn’t go for beauty queens.
"Hindi naman sa ganun. (It’s not like that.) It just never happened that way and then yun kay Pia, I’ve known her for such a long time. If ever it would be a good foundation kasi we have a good friendship. We still keep in touch. We’ve always had a good friendship.”
