“Wala pa po talaga.”
This was what Edward Barber, the other half of the phenomenal tandem MayWard, told the momshie hosts of Magandang Buhay when asked regarding the real score between him and loveteam partner Maymay Entrata during their latest guesting to promote their upcoming M.E. & U Concert.
Well, the two have been addressing questions about their brewing romance in their recent interviews with the press and on the talk shows of ABS-CBN, but they’ve been consistently and tirelessly responding that they have not reached the next level yet and they have remained close friends.
The two believe that it’s not yet the proper time for them to pursue a romantic relationship since both of them are currently focused on their respective careers and in fulfilling their other personal endeavors. Besides, they are still young – Maymay is 22 years old while Edward is 19 – so they’re both aware that they need deeper wisdom about life and love.

However, MayWard was able to maintain their solid friendship, which actually started while they were filming their movie debut “Loving in Tandem” in 2017. Just when we assumed that their closeness began during their remarkable stint as housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7, they dispelled it by confessing that they actually didn’t expect for them to be grow closer, until they were teamed up for the flick. Everything happened ‘out of nowhere’ and since then, they’ve been each other’s most trusted confidante to whom they can share everything they feel or think.

Being together for almost every day of their lives, it’s arguably inevitable for them not to at least feel something more than friendship. While they are both uncertain when the sparks started flying between them, but they both agreed that it was when “Dodong” began to get extra concerned with her skinny built and he encouraged her to gain weight, to which his “Tsuma” heeded.

MayWard might refuse to put a label on their relationship at present, but we’re certain that something more beautiful and more kilig are going on between these two, as what their photos together in this gallery suggest.
