Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza are exclusively dating, but the couple has already gone through ups and downs even before they made their relationship public. During an interview with the press for his new show Bagman, Arjo was asked for ~details~ about his romance with Maine.
Of course, after Maine posted about him on her blog and confirmed that they were dating, Arjo was ~over the moon~! And although there are people who are against their relationship, Arjo said, "I am very happy, and I think that's what matters now. My career is good, my personal life is good. I'm very content."
"Having the freedom of posting [photos on social media] doesn't make us post even more... I don't think basehan po ng relationship yung pag-post ng pag-post. We want it private, as much as we can. Yung sa amin, what you see is what you get na lang."
The two first worked together in the MMFF film Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles. Is he open to working with Maine again in the future? Arjo said, "Yeah, of course. I would love to work with her. But for now, 'wag po muna."
When it comes to pursuing Maine despite the bashers, Arjo declared, "She's worth fighting for. So dedma nalang siguro. I'm happy po e, so dedma na lang ako. I see her happy, and that's all that matters to me."
Just this March, Maine also shared that she already introduced Arjo to her parents. How did he handle it? "I think every guy would be scared—meeting the family. Nakakatakot po, kasi babae po yung anak nila. Nakakatakot, but I faced it. I had to, and I wanted to."
Arjo didn't share any details about their recent trip to Taiwan and said that his birthday gift to Maine was a *secret*. Awwww. You can watch the full interview here:
