Today in #DonBelle news: Donny Pangilinan just got candid about his feelings for Belle Mariano!
In a Magandang Buhay guesting last May 2, Donny and Belle were asked about when they first felt that there was ~something more~ between them off-screen. While the pair didn’t explicitly confirm their official relationship status, Donny admitted that they have developed *genuine* feelings for each other.
“We’ve been working together since 2019. Alam naman namin na there was a point na hindi lang naging co-workers. There was a point na talagang naging genuine ‘yung pagsasamahan namin,” he recounted.
“I really would talk to her about my problems kung kailangan ko ng support, open up to her. Rare din na magkaroon ng talagang close someone na kaya kong makapag-open up sa kahit anong bagay. It takes time for me to do that, and nangyari with her kasi I really felt na sobrang genuine lang niya sa akin, sa mga tao,” he added.
“I didn’t just see it as ‘Okay, see you at work.’ It came to a point na sobrang blessed na akong makasama siya behind the cam as well,” Donny concluded. Super cute!
Later in the interview, Donny also shared that he can’t help but look for Belle when they don’t get to see each other daily. In fact, he was even the first to say “I miss you” in their relationship.
“For example ‘yung lock-in, every day nakikita ko siya talaga. Even sa promo, every day nakikita ko siya. When it comes to a point na nag-e-end ‘yung lock-in, hinahanap ko pa rin siya e. Siyempre kasi, you get so used to something [then get] sepanx,” Donny said.
Even beyond the screen, these two Gen Z stars never fail to make people’s hearts flutter! That said, we’re definitely watching out for even more kilig moments in the second season of He’s Into Her.
