Paulo Avelino currently stars in the daytime action-drama series Asintado as Gael Ojeda, the son of Miranda (Lorna Tolentino) and the husband of Samantha (Shaina Magdayao).
When he’s not busy with work, Paulo loves to hang out with his friends and his girlfriend, Jodie Elizabeth Tarasek. Jodie is a Filipino-Australian model who is now based in Manila and has starred in catalogue shoots and commercials. She is also a TV host for a music channel.
Last July 2017, Paulo finally confirmed his relationship with Jodie in an interview. He said, “hindi ko na sasabihin kung kailan, pero kami na." He also mentioned that he met her through a common friend and that he likes her for her simplicity. Rumors about the two started when a photo of them together went around on social media. There was also a video in which he could be seen teaching her some Tagalog words.
Even though Paulo doesn’t always talk about his personal life in his interviews, he opened up a little about his relationship with Jodie when he appeared on Tonight with Boy Abunda last September. He said that he considers her a blessing because she came into his life at “a very weird time.” When he was asked if Jodie could be the one that he’d like to spend the rest of his life with, Paulo’s reply was “she could be.”
Paulo and Jodie made their red carpet debut at the Star Magic Ball 2017. It was their first public appearance together.
Let’s take a look at these rare photos of Paulo with his gorgeous model girlfriend, Jodie!
