After months of speculation, Bea Alonzo has confirmed that she’s in a relationship with Dominic Roque.
In an exclusive interview with 24 Oras released on Monday, August 9, the actress opened up about her love life, saying that she was being cautious about sharing her new relationship with the public.
“It just came out naturally. Alam ko na prior to the posting, marami nang haka-haka ang mga tao-tao (I know before I posted that there were already rumors going around)… It’s not like I was trying to hide it. I think I was just trying to be careful given my past experience. Siyempre gusto kong masiguro muna kung saan siya pupunta bago siya gawing official (I wanted to make sure where the relationship is heading first before I made it official),” Bea said.
Relationship rumors between Bea and Dominic were practically confirmed when the two started posting sweet photos of each other from their month-long trip to the United States in July.
The actress said she was thankful for the public’s reaction to her new romance. “A lot of people have been part of my journey and almost everyone in this country knows my story. I appreciate that they are happy for me,” Bea said.
“Naiintindihan nila kung saan ako nanggaling, kung saan ako ngayon at saan ko gusto pumunta (They understand where I’m coming from, where I am now and where I plan to be in the future). I’m very appreciative sa mga (of the) reactions.”
“I am happy na (that) everything’s so right, and everything is being celebrated,” she added.
Even if they’ve made their relationship Instagram-official, Bea said she’d still prefer to keep it low-key. “Even sa past relationships ko, hindi naman ako super open about it. I think treasured moments ng relationship ay ‘yung moments na hindi na-si-share sa social media. I want to keep it that way,” she said.
(Even in my previous relationships, I’m not super open about [them]. I think the most treasured moments of a relationship are those that aren’t shared on social media. I want to keep it that way.)
Bea first confirmed that she was dating Dominic in April, but clarified that they were not in an “exclusive relationship” yet. “I am very careful when it comes to falling so deep again and trusting anybody,” she said then.
Rumors that the two were dating first went around in 2020, after they were spotted together in similar venues. Bea was previously in a relationship with actor Gerald Anderson until 2019. – Rappler.com
