Ardent shippers of real-life couple Maureen Wroblewitz and JK Labajo were indeed thrilled upon seeing one of the latter’s post on Instagram, wherein he posted a portrait of the former and asked everyone to support her in her Miss Universe Philippines bid.
“Hi po gud pm sa inyong lahat paki download po yung miss universe ph app tapos paki vote po yung crush ko na si Maureen Christa Wroblewitz para po pansinin niya na po ako. Panget po yung mga hindi po susuporta sa kanya. Salamat po,” he wrote in the caption, to which she replied, “Hi crush (heart emoji).”
Those who have been following them know that this is just one of those instances when they fill social media with kilig as they share snaps and clips of them together and of one another for random reasons sometimes, as well as to show their unwavering and all-out support and love for each other.
Aside from expressing his support for her, JK also never failed to make her special and loved, especially on her birthday. In her 23rd birthday celebration last June 22, he posted a black and white photo of her and attached a funny, yet touching greeting for her.
“[Ay] ang swerte mo talaga [sa’kin],” he quipped. Then he added, “[Maligayang] kaarawan sa aking minamahal! [Palagi] mong tandaan na [ako’y nandito] lang na walang sawang susuporta sa lahat ng mga gusto mong gawin sa buhay. [Nawa’y] makamit mo ang lahat ng iyong mga pangarap, aking maliwanag na bituin! [Cute mo talaga, gigil ako [sa’yo].”
It was in 2017 when rumors about JK and Maureen’s romance first circulated after they were spotted together in several occasions. In his Tonight With Boy Abunda guesting in May of that year, the The Voice Kids Season 1 alumnus told the King of Talk, “she’s my friend”, when asked what’s the real score between them.
He reiterated it in his media interview months after that to promote the finale of his latest teleserye A Love To Last, wherein he divulged further about their friendship. According to him, he met Maureen through her fans, who are also fans of his co-star Claire Hartell, who introduced them to one another before she joined Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5. They immediately became close friends because they share the same life – from how they lost their respective moms and how they were both half-Germans.
Maureen became his leading lady for the music video of his smash hit “Buwan” in 2018, which spurred rumors that they’re indeed already an item. Both of them refused to directly address it by saying that they wanted to keep things private despite being spotted together in public in several occasions.
It was only confirmed when the 23-year-old newly-signed Star Magic talent, posted a photo of them together getting cozy and captioned it, “happy valentine’s day”. Since then, they’ve been serving us with kilig and good vibes as they share some of their sweet and funny moments together through the photos and videos they upload on social media, not to mention their exchanges that never fail to tickle us.
