Shaina Magdayao clarifies ‘exclusively dating‘ issue with Piolo Pascual

  • Shaina speaks up on the ‘exclusively dating’ issue with Piolo Pascual
  • She said it is too soon to label their ‘special’ relationship
  • However, the actress admitted she appreciates Pascual’s ‘genuine presence’ in her life right now

MANILA, Philippines – Don’t get excited, it’s not official; this is what actress Shaina Magdayao told their fans amid rumors that she and Piolo Pascual are ‘exclusively dating’.

In an interview on ‘Tonight with Boy Abunda’, Magdayao admitted that Pascual had been there for her as a ‘great friend’ and they have become very special to each other. Even the actor’s family became special to her, Magdayao said.

However, the 27-year-old Kapamilya talent said Pascual is still free to date anyone he wants, in as much as she is free to go out with someone she wants.

“Nagkataon lang siguro na [It so happened that] 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 Magdayao.

Magdayao’s remark came after Pascual admitted in an early interview about ‘exclusively dating’ the actress for five years.

“Whatever it is, I guess we just have to mutually respect everyone involved and not talk more about it. 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,” Pascual was quoted as saying.

But Magdayao said it’s too soon to label their relationship officially, especially that both of them are not getting any younger and don’t want to take commitment lightly.

“To be honest, Piolo has been very present in my life lately. But again since nagkaka-edad na [we’re getting old] and we don’t take commitment lightly, I pray that my next one would be the right one,” Magdayao told ABS-CBN News.

“So it’s too soon to label things officially. Huwag po kayong excited [Don’t get excited] and I’m just thankful for his genuine presence in my life right now,” she added.

Rumors of budding romance between the two became a showbiz topic last year after their video dancing intimately during the Annual Star Magic Ball went viral on social media.
