We're officially in 2021 and we've got a brand new celeb couple who rang in the New Year together: Barbie Imperial and Diego Loyzaga. The two stars were on holiday in Bohol when they broke the news of their relationship on Instagram. On New Year's Day, Diego posted a sweet couple photo of them wrapped in each other's arms and wrote in the caption: "Happy new year to us. Thanks for making the end of my 2020 memorable. Let's gooo 2021!"

On January 3, Barbie couldn't help but gush over her new beau and said that their love was "totally unexpected" because they started out as friends. Aww!

"Still my favorite photo of us," she wrote on Instagram. "Totally unexpected to fall for someone I thought I'd be just friends with forever but I'm really happy to have found both love and friendship with this one. Thank you for making me happy and feel loved. Thank you for everything that you do to make me feel the love I deserve. So thankful for you, thank God for you. #angcheezynibarbie pagbigyan ngayon lang ulit naging ganito"


According to ABS-CBN, dating rumors between Barbie and Diego surfaced in November 2020 when Diego left a comment on one of Barbie's Insta posts. Later that month, Barbie admitted on Magandang Buhay that Diego was indeed courting her. They were then spotted on a couple of more dates since then. Cheers to the new lovebirds!
