ICYMI: Joshua Garcia and Bella Racelis sparked a fresh round of dating rumors online after they were seen holding hands in a mall over the weekend. The photo of them with interlocked fingers has now gone viral on social media, garnering over 6,000 retweets on Twitter and 160,000 reactions on Facebook.
Despite the surprise of it all, many netizens seemed happy to see the couple getting low-key affectionate in public. Numerous Twitter users noted they’re a gorgeous couple who deserve to be with each other.
One netizen pointed out their notable height difference! NGL, that is pretty cute.
Of course, the photo also prompted tons of witty reactions and hilarious memes. For example, some netizens jokingly brought up Bella Poarch, another internet star who openly flirted with Joshua a few months back.
As expected, the “tapos na ang pila” posts, along with its other witty variants, were back in full swing. Joshua’s fans couldn’t help but express their pain over seeing their best boy with another girl!
“Ang motivational quote po natin today ay wala. Sumuko na tayong lahat hindi na natin kaya ‘to,” one person commented. LOL!
There was even one netizen who referenced the on-screen tandem of Jane De Leon and Janella Salvador—aka Joshua’s current leading ladies in Darna. It’s a good thing the girls still have each other, the netizen quipped.
All jokes aside though, we’re just happy that Bella and Joshua seem to be enjoying each other’s company. Fingers crossed for more kilig moments like this!
