After years of speculation, Martin has finally confirmed that he is in a relationship with Julia Montes. The couple has been together for 12 years, and fans are thrilled to hear the news.
During their appearance on ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol on May 23, Coco Martin opened up about the current state of their romantic relationship when asked by the interviewer.
“Napakasarap ng pakiramdam namin dahil 12 years na kaming magkasama, pero pareho pa rin tulad ng dati. Nilo-look forward namin kapag may project na magkasama kami and then kapag may pagkakataon, nakakalabas kami, nakikita kami ng mga tao pero name-maintain namin ang privacy sa buhay namin,” he said.
As per the actor, they both decided to keep their relationship private, as they believe in cherishing their love away from the prying eyes of the public.
“Basta kami, hindi naman na kaming mga bata. Kung ano ‘yung nakikita at iniisip ng mga tao, ‘yun na ‘yun. Mas masarap ‘yung pakiramdam na pribado ang buhay namin, tahimik. Walang mga issue. Ito, masaya kami,” he added.
Julia Montes added to Coco’s statement saying,
“Kung ano ‘yung position namin ngayon, sobrang blessed lang talaga kami. And never nawala sa center si God so hindi nawawala ang mga good stuff. Si God talaga ang center.”
The couple has kept mum about the origins of their romance, but they were first seen working together in the 2012 teleserye “Walang Hanggan.” They later shared the screen in the film “A Moment in Time” a year after.
