For four months, we devotedly watched their whimsical appearance in Wansapanatayam Presents: Gelli in a Bottle with Loisa Andalio as the titular character and Ronnie Alonte as her knight-in-shining-armor Robin.
But unbeknownst to many, their bond has been going strong for more than a year now.
They started out as friends when first worked together on It’s Showtime, wherein the multifaceted actress was once a part of the all-female group GirlTrends while the promising actor is a member of its male counterpart Hashtags, and revealed that they used to go out often with their friends.
However, the former confessed in their guesting at Gandang Gabi Vice that she got immediately smitten with him from the moment she first laid eyes on him during their workshop and found him really cute. She seemed to take this attraction in her stint in the noontime show, making her a subject of mockery of their colleagues Zeus Collins and Jon Lucas who allegedly caught her glimpsing at him.
On the other hand, Ronnie instantly got captivated with the Pinoy Big Brother: All In alumna’s bright personality and humility, which are the things he looks for a girl.
Amidst the sweetness and affection they display on public through their television appearances and social media, not to mention their term of endearment “bebe ko”, LoiNie denied being a couple and have been reiterating that they’re in no rush to be in a relationship soon. However, they admitted that they’re the reason for each other’s happiness.
“Kumpara ko sa dati, ngayon mas masaya ako kasi unang-una, di ko ineexpect na makakatrabaho ko si Loisa at magiging ganito kami ka-close sobra. Para sa akin sobrang saya ko na nakasama ko siya,” Ronnie retorted when the Magandang Buhay momshies asked them about the current status of their hearts.
Loisa felt the same, as she responded, “Masasabi ko na ngayon ko lang naexperience na ganito kasaya, na walang problema. ‘Yong sobrang tiwala mo sa lalaki. First time.”
Since both of them believe that any relationship built should last for a lifetime, they just continue getting to know each other and enjoying whatever status they currently have, while they continue strengthening their future by putting their careers first.
Did your LoiNie hearts felt “bitin” with their recently-concluded stint in Wansapataym? You may catch them alongside loveteams JoshLia, MarNigo, and MayWard in the highly-anticipated “Just Love Araw-Araw Fan Meet” happening on May 19 and 20 (Saturday and Sunday) at the ABS-CBN Vertis North Tent.
