Although it was reported that there were two parties because Max is in a lock-in taping for her new teleserye To Have And To Hold, netizens couldn't help wondering if Max and Pancho are indeed still together. It doesn't help that they've noticed that he doesn't appear on her social media posts.
Max put the breakup rumors to rest when she was interviewed on GMA News. The actress said, "I really wanted to address the issue kasi Pancho and I have talked about how, for now, he's giving me time to prioritize my career. So that means sa social media, tahimik kami and we have our own branding. I choose to keep my posts very more on working out, on being a mom. Secondary, I'm a mom and a wife, but first and foremost I'm an actress."
PEP also quoted Max as saying, "I'm so thankful to have a husband who supports me and who understands."
Pancho, who had just finished taping for his show First Yaya, told GMA News that it just so happened that he and Max had work during Skye's birthday. "Meron naman kami [na] kaming tatlo lang [na party] na hindi naman naming kailangan [i-broadcast sa social media]."
