Prominent actor Carlo Aquino has finally issued a statement about continuous rumors linking him to emerging actress Charlie Dizon.
On Friday, Carlo confirmed that he is indeed dating Charlie. This is just a couple of weeks since speculations about a romance brewing between them surfaced online.
The actor admitted that he is going out with Dizon and that they are currently in the getting-to-know stage. He revealed this during the media conference of Star Magic’s partnership with Mavx Productions where Carlo is promoting a film
According to him, it started after they returned to the Philippines after Star Magic’s US tour which took place in August last year. In an interview, he said,
“Nagkasama kami sa ‘A Soldier’s Heart.’ Nagkakilala kami do’n. Tapos nag-US tour, mas nakilala ko siya. Pag-uwi, ayun (tuloy-tuloy na).”
He also confirmed that he was with Dizon and his family when he welcomed 2023 in La Union.
“Yung brother ko ‘di nakauwi from Sydney at saka ‘yung wife niya ng 2 years dahil nga sa pandemic. So pag-uwi nila, ‘yung mga relatives ng sister-in-law ko pumunta,” he shared.
Speculations of a romance brewing between the two stars first surfaced in late December. It became apparent after they were seen cozy with each other in a group photo.
The images, taken during a “holiday dinner,” showed Charlie with a group of friends, including Carlo. Fans, on the other hand, were quick to point out the affectionate pose of the two Kapamilya stars, with their arms tangled.
The rumors were further fueled when they were spotted in La Union as seen on an official Facebook page of a local restaurant.
Carlo previously shared a photo with the actress in November, but that appeared to be a still from their recently announced movie, Black Sheep’s Love on a Budget.
The actor is busy promoting the upcoming release of his movie with Barbie Imperial titled I Love Lizzy, opening in cinemas nationwide on January 18.
