Doctor Mike's sweet message for Pia Wurtzbach on Bb Pilipinas coronation night

MANILA, Philippines – Pia Wurtzbach may be giving up her Binibining Pilipinas crown on Sunday, April 17, but she'll always be Miss Philippines to one person – Mikhail Varshavski, aka "Doctor Mike."

Just days before the pageant, Pia admitted for the first time that she was dating the second year medical resident who was once named People magazine's "Sexiest Doctor Alive."

On Twitter on the night of the pageant, Dr Mike tweeted Pia, saying, "Even though tonight you're giving up the crown, you'll forever be my Miss Philippines!"

After tagging Pia and using the pageant's hashtag, he also hastagged "#comebacksoon" and ended with a heart emoji.

Even though tonight you're giving up the crown, you'll forever be my Miss Phillipines! @PiaWurtzbach #BbPilipinas2016 #comebacksoon — Doctor.Mike (@RealDoctorMike) April 17, 2016

 

*Philippines* my apologies — Doctor.Mike (@RealDoctorMike) April 17, 2016

 

Photos of the two have been appearing on Dr. Mike's Snapchat account. In March, Pia confirmed during an appearance on the show Extra that she was dating someone.

Dr Mike also told entertainment website Wonderwall that he was indeed going out with Pia. (READ: Are Pia Wurtzbach and Dr. Mike dating?)
