It was just a few days ago when Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson made their relationship Instagram-official! On September 12, 2020, Janella posted a sweet photo of her and Markus and captioned it, "The best hugs in the world from the best potato in the world."
Markus also posted a video of him and Janella dancing in the living room and captioned it, "my [world emoji]."
Fellow celebs who are close to the two like Erich Gonzales, Maja Salvador, Bailey May, and Darren Espanto showered their love for the couple in their respective comments sections.
The two were already previously linked back in 2019. When asked about the status of their relationship during an interview, Markus says, "What you see is what you get." He also shared during the same interview that he doesn't want to get his personal life and his career mixed.
Just a few days after confirming their relationship, however, fans of both celebrities have started speculating about another possible revelation after watching a certain clip from a recent Instagram Live on Markus' account.
In the clip, a girl, presumably Janella, can be heard saying, "I almost jumped, and that's not good. I'm not allowed to jump," leading fans to believe that Janella might be pregnant. (While the statement is vague and can apply to a number of conditions or reasons aside from pregnancy, it should be noted that according to research, as long as your pregnancy is not delicate and your doctor says it's okay, pregnant women can do light jumping exercises.)
Pep.ph also reports that Janella's mother, stage actress Jenine Desiderio, recently flew to the U.K. where Janella is said to be currently based in light of the pregnancy rumors. Markus is also in the U.K. with his family.
Janella, 22, is best known for her roles in Be Careful with My Heart (starring alongside Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap) and The Killer Bride (together with Maja Salvador and Joshua Garcia). Markus, 22, is a Filipino-British actor who first entered the industry through the reality singing competition Pinoy Boyband Superstar.
While nothing is confirmed yet, what's important is that we respect Janella and Markus' relationship and their decision to share what they choose to with the rest of us on social media.
