The year isn't even over yet, but 2016 has been one big ride for reel and real-life couple James Reid and Nadine Lustre. Let's look back at some of the biggest milestones that happened to this lovely couple on this list.
After Yes! Magazine's February 2016 issue came out, James took to Instagram to clarify a few things written in the article—about his rumored relationship with Julia Barretto. But even if there were a few things fans can't agree with, we absolutely loved how Nadine said that she's open to romance between her and James: "I guess I have this unconditional love na din po for him, kasi nga, since we do everything together; he knows what I feel. I know what he feels. Tsaka parang he's important to me. Pero I take care of him din most of the time, kasi nga walang nag-aalaga sa kanya. And he's very carefree and careless until now. So parang kailangan may nagbabantay talaga sa kanya."
At the start of the year, the couple also released a travel video edited by Naddie which they shot in San Francisco. P.S. We already knew there was something different (and real!) when we saw this video. He he he.

Can you believe that it was only this year that James and Naddie made things offish between the two of them? Feels so long ago, right? Especially because they've been really close even before they started dating. The date to remember for every JaDine fan: February 11, 2016. They announced that they're together on February 20 at the Araneta Coliseum during their JaDine in Love concert.
After ending their top-rating and game-changing TV series On the Wings of Love, James and Nadine flew all over the globe for their world tour and to meet their fans from different parts of the world. Our favorite parts of their trip? Their romantic dinner at the Eiffel Tower and James's surprise for Naddie in the city of love.
After spending their past month abroad, JaDine went home for a few weeks to promote their feel-good summer movie This Time. For this film, they went to Japan and shot under the beautiful cherry blossom trees. How romantic!
For James's birthday this year, girlfriend Naddie prepared a surprise bash for the love of her life together with his best friend Brett Jackson. They even got his fave band Oh, Flamingo to play at the party. D'aww!
And how can we even forget our surprise for this month? The #CandyLovesJaDine fan magazine!
We had our first look at JaDine's second TV series, Till I Met You, under Dreamscape and Antoinette Jadaone last June, where it was revealed that the story's going to have an LGBT angle. The sneak peek was released via ABS-CBN's trade event Gabi ng Pangarap.
Till I Met You finally aired its pilot episode on ABS-CBN! Fans loved everything about the series—especially their new gang in the series, JC Santos and Kim Molina. Aww!

September is the birthday month of James's mom, Mommy Ella. And for this month, Naddie gave her future mom-in-law (LOL, hee hee!) a gift that came with a sweet note. Aww!
Plus, in this month's issue of Candy, Naddie graced the cover with her BFF Yassi Pressman—who revealed in the interview that she kept teasing Naddie and James even before they were a couple. Aww! We really can't forget her shy face during that part of the interview. Hee hee!
In October, James appeared on the cover of Candy with his brother Jack where we found out how Jack felt about Naddie. Hee hee, better grab a copy to read all about it!
The couple also went to Korea this month to celebrate Nadine's birthday with their friends. They even dressed up for Halloween!
We know that the couple celebrated Nadine's birthday in Korea, but we were all wondering still about James's birthday gift to the girlfriend. Early last month, we found out what it was—finally!
It's just the beginning of December but our kilig from these two are already on a high. We can't wait to see what's in store for their characters on Till I Met You. Plus, all the cute scenes they have off-cam. Hee hee!
