Kapamilya actor Sam Milby revealed on Saturday that he and Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray are in a relationship.
In his Instagram account, Sam posted a photo of him and Catriona for his 36th birthday.
“Worth every second of the wait. Most special birthday yet,” Sam wrote.
In the said photo, Sam can be seen hugging the beauty queen.
Sam and Catriona’s friends congratulated the couple in Sam’s post, expressing their happiness for their relationship.
“God-written love story,” Moira commented, adding: “Couldn’t think of a better pair for my Kuya.”
“Ayiiie! Happy birthday sam! Very happy for the both of you!” Angelica Panganiban wrote.
Erickson Raymundo, who handles both Sam and Catriona’s careers under Cornerstone Entertainment, also commented on Sam’s post, saying: “Happy birthday, Sam! And sooohappy for you and @catriona_gray!! Stay happy and in love.”
Meanwhile, Sam’s best friend John Prats also posted on his Instagram account a photo of the couple holding hands.
“Sa wakas may photo na hindi ikaw ang third wheel!!! Hahahaha! Congratulations @samuelmilby and @catriona_gray mahal na mahal ko kayo!!! May God bless you guys! Cheers!!!” John wrote.
The relationship might have come as a surprise to some, especially since Catriona had said that she and Sam were just friends. But if Sam’s showbiz friends’ reactions are any indication, it’s a love that’s been brewing for a while.
Milby and Gray first sparked dating rumors in late 2019 when some photos of them together circulated on social media. Gray denied them, however, in an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” in January this year. She said they were spending a lot of time together only because they went to the same church and had the same management company.
Congrats Sam and Catriona!
What can you say? Do they look good together?
