Bea Alonzo and Zandro Marudo started barely as friends.
Alonzo and Marudo almost even at odds from their previous working relationship.
Both had to pretend as lovers for a night at a party and little did they know that the said encounter spelled the start of a real romance.
Alonzo recalled her first meeting with Marudo, who was a fresh graduate from the reality TV show ‘Pinoy Big Brother’ as a housemate.
They started portraying as onscreen lovers in a 2011 episode of the drama anthology ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya.’
Their second meeting was at a bar where it offered an opportunity to start over because an elderly man had been persistent in wooing Alonzo that night.
It forced the actress to enlist Marudo’s help by having him as her pretend boyfriend only for the night.
The two would find themselves in a similar situation again at another party where Alonzo arrived alone and felt awkward by her lonesome.
Marudo is always quick to come to her rescue and he offers to accompany her, pretending to be her ‘boyfriend.’
This led the way to a good friendship between the two of them, until they finally made it official to say that they are now a couple.
They say that their love story is a love, straight out of a romantic-comedy flick.
