Yup, McCoy De Leon and Elisse Joson (also known as McLisse) are now parents to a beautiful baby girl named Felize! The celeb couple first sparked dating rumors back in 2016, and even had a dramatic breakup that *broke everyone's hearts* in 2018. We're sooo happy all's well between them now. 

Here's what we know about McLisse's relationship, from 2016 to 2021:

At that time, McCoy was 21 and Elisse was 20. Watch some of their *kilig* moments below: 

In 2021, Elisse opened up about the ~wildest~ moment she had with McCoy in PBB. She said they already considered themselves to be dating when she re-entered the house: "Kasi 'di ba there were cameras everywhere, and we didn't plan. Basta nag-swimming kami, and then sa pool, sabi namin, 'Ah, walang camera.' When we swam there, nagkaroon ng one kiss under the swimming pool...Hindi ko alam kung nakita 'yon ng staff!"  


October 2016: McCoy speaks about courting Elisse.

In a joint interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda, McCoy said he and Elisse were perfectly fine being friends in the meantime. "Wala pa sa isip namin talaga. Nako-kontento kami ngayon. 'Pag may panahon siguro, hindi rin natin masasabi...Ako kasi 'pag nanliligaw ako, hindi ko sinasabi, 'Puwede bang manligaw?' Basta ipinaparamdam ko lang." Elisse then joked, "Ayaw ko naman po mag-assume. Para po sa akin, kailangan ko pong malaman, especially kasi si McCoy friendly po siya sa mga babae." 

Fans, of course, deduced that they were together soon after and they worked on multiple acting projects together.

During an interview, Elisse admitted that McCoy unfollowed her on Instagram, adding: "'Yon nga rin, hindi ko rin naiintindihan actually yung nangyaring 'yon. Hindi ko masabi kung bakit kaya nagtaka din ako. Ako, hindi ako nag-unfollow, the fans know about it, sila ang nakakita at nakaalam. Ako, hindi talaga ako aware." McCoy later followed her again. According to Elisse, she didn't ask why he unfollowed her in the first place. "Hindi ko na tinanong kung bakit, hindi ko na rin inalam kung bakit."

October 2018: McCoy confirms the *breakup*. 

McCoy said they were not on speaking terms and that he hadn't talked to Elisse since the last time they were together at the 2018 ABS-CBN Ball: "Nag-umpisa po 'yon [tampuhan] nung Wansapanataym niya. Parang doon nag-start lahat. 'Di ko na po alam kung ano talaga yung naging rason ng lahat.


He added: "Gusto ko sanang kausapin para maging maayos, maging maayos yung samahan namin. Kaso 'yon nga, hindi na po nasundan after nung Ball...Humingi siya ng time, ganyan, oras. Siguro hindi raw muna ngayon, balang araw dawganyan. So 'yon po, naintindihan ko naman po, binigay ko po sa kanya 'yon."

January 2019: Their latest movie, Sakaling Maging Tayo, is shown in cinemas.

  • McCoy sacrificed the relationship for his family.
  • But he loved her. A lot.
  • They missed each other.

In an interview with Boy Abunda, the two got emotional again when they opened up about the separation. They took turns apologizing to each other. Elisse said sorry for being "too needy, too pushy, na you felt like you weren't doing enough," and McCoy said, "Sorry kasi I had to—not give up but give way. Kinailangan kong gawin 'yon para sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Sorry kung hindi na ako ang lalaking 'yon. Maniwala ka man o hindi, sobrang binigay ko ang lahat sa'yo. I did my part naman talaga. Siguro ang timing lang natin, hindi pa talaga puwede…Salamat sa love."


The separation lasts for around one year. 

During their separation, they didn't have any communication at all! In a 2021 vlog, the two opened up about that particular period and even explained why they "hated" each other. McCoy was the one who finally reached out to Elisse via text, where he said: "Masaya ako na ngumingiti ka na."
