  • The beauty queen admitted their relationship in an interview

For the first time, reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach opened up about the real status of her relationship with professional race car driver Marlon Stockinger.

In an interview with Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News, the beauty queen admitted that she and Stockinger are officially a couple.

“I’m glad that I finally met somebody who’s very secure with himself and who understands my job, and who’s not afraid to let me have my moment such as right now, now that the competition is happening here,” she said.

Speaking like any other woman in love, Wurtzbach’s eyes glowed as she talked about her Filipino-Swiss boyfriend, whom she described as funny.

She noted that there are times when people who are in relationships had to force themselves to laugh although their partners’ aren’t funny at all, but it’s not like that in her case.

She shared that her manager and the Miss Universe Organization like Stockinger and they’re in favor of their relationship.

Before Stockinger, Wurtzbach was linked to Mikhail “Dr. Mike” Varshavski, who was named “Sexiest Doctor Alive” by People Magazine and there are people who are wondering what happened between them.

In an interview with Push during the Annual Star Magic Ball last October, Stockinger admitted that he’s seeing Wurtzbach and emphasized that they wouldn’t be together if Dr. Mike was still in the picture.

“You can say that we’re on the early stages, obviously we’ve only just begun to know each other,” he said.

He admitted that their situation isn’t easy because they’re miles away from each other so whenever they get the chance, they make the most out of it.

The couple welcomed the new year together in Hawaii and they shared some of their photos on their respective Instagram accounts.

My kind of NYE ? @marlonstockinger #hawaii
