MAINE Mendoza and Arjo Atayde appear to be taking baby steps towards finally being open about their romance, despite incessant intrigues and the vocal disapproval of some fans.
On Instagram on Thursday, the 23-year-old actress shared a photo of her striking a goofy pose with Atayde.
The snap appears to have been taken during a Wednesday event launching Mendoza as the new face of an international makeup line.
“Uy, may fan,” Mendoza wrote, in jest, over the photo with Atayde.
Atayde, 28, first confirmed he is “exclusively” dating Mendoza in January, after months of speculation about the romance spurred by public sightings of the two on apparent dates.
While the two have been photographed together on several occasions since Atayde’s confirmation, Mendoza’s post on Thursday was the first time either of them personally shared an update about each other on social media. (ABS-CBN News)
