Before our favorite love teams rose to popularity, some of them were paired up on old projects with a different star. We may now have the likes of KathNielLizQuen, and even JaDine as a few of the top love teams in this generation, but years ago, these were the celebrity love teams people were rooting for.

Here's a look back at some of the previous celebrity pairings on TV. 

1. Nadine Lustre and AJ Muhlach

Before becoming #TeamReal with James Reid, Nadine was paired up with AJ Muhlach in the TV5 projects P.S. I Love You and Bagets: Just Got Lucky.

Fresh out of Pinoy Big Brother, James teamed up with fellow PBB alum Yen Santos in the teleserye Pintada.

3. Kathryn Bernardo and Enrique Gil

Kathryn and Enrique now have their respective and super successful love teams (and real-life relationships!), but years ago, they got to work together for the 2011 film Way Back Home and the 2021 teleserye Princess & I


4. Julia Barretto and Enrique Gil

Aside from Kathryn, Enrique was also paired up with Julia Barretto for the TV series Mirabella. Back then, their love team was referred to as QuenLia.

5. Daniel Padilla and Julia Montes

Before rising to fame as one-half of the beloved Kapuso love team AlDub, Alden was first paired with fellow GMA star Louise delos Reyes in the 2011 teleserye Alakdana. They later teamed up again for the 2013 series Mundo Mo'y Akin
