MANILA, Philippines – Celebrity couple Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza flew to Europe for the actor-politician’s birthday.
Maine shared a photo of them in front of the Eiffel Tower on Saturday, November 5.
According to Arjo’s mom, Sylvia Sanchez, this is the first time that their family won’t be there to celebrate her son’s birthday.
“Pero happy kami kasi alam naming sobrang happy ka dahil kasama mo ang pinakamamahal mong si bubba (Maine),” Sylvia wrote, alongside photos of Arjo and Maine. (But we’re happy because we know you’re happy to be spending time with [Maine]).
Aside from France, Maine also shared photos from their visit to the Netherlands.
Arjo, meanwhile, thanked his friends and supporters for taking the time to greet him on his birthday.

The Europe trip marks the couple’s first overseas vacation after their engagement in July. Maine and Arjo first went public with their relationship in January 2019.
