Kylie Verzosa and Jake Cuenca have been posting the sweetest photos but haven’t actually confirmed their relationship—until now. On Tonight With Boy Abunda, the Los Bastardos co-stars confirmed that they’re officially together!
They first met on the set of Ang Panday, and Kylie recalled that Jake wasn’t her type back then because of his long hair. Jake remembered sliding into her DMs, which Kylie ignored! The actor said, “I just knew in my heart na magkakatrabaho ulit kami and we’ll know each other better.” When they started working on Los Bastardos last year, Jake said, “We became friends first. We have a solid foundation of friendship.”
As to speculation that Jake was the cause of her breakup with her boyfriend at the time, Kylie denied the rumors. “No, not at all. It just didn’t work out. It was a difficult relationship.” Last year, Kylie was linked to businessman Michael Needham, according to GMA News.
Asked if she and Jake have talked about marriage, Kylie said, “Jake and I aren’t the youngest of people. We’re not teenagers anymore. We’re two mature adults. We have our own careers. We’re two adults living our own lives but we complete each other.”
Jake said, “We’re taking it a day at a time. But for me, for the first time in my life, I can see it in the horizon.” He recalled that he would get so “uneasy” talking about marriage before. “But now with Kylie and with where I am in my life, I can definitely see it in the horizon.”
The couple recently became proud parents to a cute pupper they named Nugget. They also attended the ABS-CBN Ball last weekend.
