- In February 2017, Piolo Pascual said he and Shaina Magdayao are "exclusively dating" for five years
- At that time, Shaina downplayed it and said they can still date other people
- On January 11, Shaina revealed the status of their relationship
No doubt about it, Piolo Pascual is a very important man in Shaina Magdayao's life.
On "Tonight With Boy Abunda", Shaina said Piolo is one of the very few people she trusts completely.
When asked who Piolo is in her life, Shaina answered: "Isa siya sa mga beautiful souls who have decided to stay. And I know na isa siya sa mga tao na kaya kong pagkatiwalaan."
The two celebrities have been rumored to be a couple since 2012.
The rumors started after they were reportedly seen being cozy at the Singapore concert of ASAP that year.
However, Piolo said they were just friends that time.
But in February 2017, Piolo openly admitted that he's dating Shaina for five years. He was careful to put a definite label on their relationship though.
"Mahirap i-label I guess... I've been with her five years na, exclusively dating, but I know and she knows that we don't date out of what we have. Nandun kami," said Piolo as quoted by ABS-CBN News.
Shaina, for her part, downplayed Piolo's revelation at that time. She said he's very special to her, but they are not in a relationship.
"Just for the record, he is free to date anyone he wants, the same way I'm free to date anyone I want. Nagkataon lang siguro na we're both not dating other people kaya nagka-exclusively dating label. But I appreciate how he has been consistent that he's not seeing anyone else but me," said Shaina to ABS-CBN in 2017.
It looks like not much has changed between Shaina and Piolo.
On January 10, Shaina appeared in "Magandang Buhay" and said she and Piolo are friends.
"We are friends now and I think we will be friends for a long time. We'll remain friends for a long time," said Shaina.
The pair has finished filming a movie "Ang Panahon ng Halimaw", which is directed by Lav Diaz.
Shaina will also be starring against Julia Montes in the upcoming teleserye "Asintado".
Shaina is a Filipina actress, dancer, and model. She is the younger sister of Vina Morales.
