Zanjoe Marudo's love life is in bloom.
The actor was seen out on a dinner date with his rumored girlfriend, Siargao-based surfer babe Josie Prendergast. They were joined by Zanjoe's long-time handler Monch Novales who shared a photo of the date on Instagram last February 10.
She captioned the photo, "Happy to see you again @josie_prendergast ❤️ @onlyzanjoemarudo."
The dinner marks the first time we've seen the rumored couple out together in a hot minute. First reports that Zanjoe was allegedly dating the Fil-Aussie stunner started in May of 2017 when they made their romance Instagram Stories-official on Josie's account. Zanjoe was also seen in Siargao last June when he attended Josie's 19th birthday party.

Zanjoe sort of confirmed the romance in an interview last July 3 while he was promoting his buddy comedy with Empoy Marquez "Kusina Kings". During that time, he revealed that their relationship was still at its "early stages". He said, "We're getting to know [each other pa] kasi bago pa lang kaming magkakilala."

They've since kept it low-key, with Zanjoe going as far as to explicitly tell the press that he will not be entertaining questions about his personal life. He said, "Nakakahiya din na nada-drag 'yung name niya. Masyado siyang private na tao, gusto ko siyang respetuhin."
