Rumors about Arjo and Maine being together as a couple started after eagle-eyed fans secretly took photos of the two during their alleged dates. This was then followed by Arjo greeting Maine on her birthday with a picture of them boasting the happiest smiles while wrapping each other in an embrace. The picture, which supportive shippers described as a clear image of pure bliss, was coupled with a blog post from Maine boldly narrating how their relationship has become deeper through time.
In the Fast Talk segment of Tonight with Boy Abunda, Arjo answered questions drawn out of the context of his special relationship with Maine. The Kapamilya actor admitted being the first one to develop romantic feelings for Maine and that he is more clingy than her.
Arjo is obviously in love and sees nothing but the adorable things about Maine; saying he finds the actress beautiful each day and that a world without her would be nothing but darkness. Finally, on July 2022, the two officially got engaged.
