Pia Wurtzbach detailed for the first time how it all started between her and her boyfriend, Beautiful Destinations founder Jeremy Jauncey.
Speaking to BJ Pascual in the latest episode of Musings, the former beauty queen recalled how they almost met each other on different occasions in the past, but never had the chance to talk.
"We already know of each other kasi siyempre kasi fina-follow ko naman ‘yung Beautiful Destinations kahit hindi ko pa siya nakilala. And nakailang beses na rin siya pumunta ng Pilipinas. And meron na kaming parang muntik na mag-meet pero hindi lang natutuloy. Parang ganun,” she said.
The two once again attended an event in the United Kingdom in 2019, and this time, Jeremy finally approached Pia.
“So, parang I know of him and he knows of me tapos doon na kami nagkakilala sa Covent Garden sa UK. Tapos playing it cool ako pero hiyang-hiya talaga ako kasi siyempre, naga-gwapuhan ako sa kanya,” Pia admitted.
What the actress liked about Jeremy back then was it didn't feel like he was hitting on her.
“Super friendly naman siya. It didn’t come off as parang nag-approach. Kasi ‘di ba may ganun parang may nag-approach tapos mafi-feel mo na this guy is just trying to hit on you. It wasn’t like that at all naman,” she shared.
Since they both had a nice talk, Pia said she agreed to go out for a coffee with him. She also recalled that she gave her number and exchanged a few messages with him.
“Nag-dinner kami nung last day ko bago ako umuwi. Tapos after namin mag-dinner, tinanong niya ako kung ano’ng plano ko for Christmas. Sabi ko, ‘Oh I’m just going to be here in the UK, I’ll spend it with my family.' Tapos sabi niya, sakto, ‘I’ll be in Scotland.’ UK pa rin naman, pero medyo malayo lang. Sabi ko ‘You want to spend New Year’s together?’ Ako talaga ‘yung nagtanong,” she recalled.
"Tapos sabi niya, ‘Yes.’ Actually, iniisip niya nga daw ‘yun. Tapos plinano na niya lahat. Tapos pinuntahan niya pa pala ako bago nangyari ‘yung New Year [event] na ‘yun,” she added.
While they had chance meetings in the past, Pia believes their encounter in the UK is what truly started it all.
“So, nagkita pa kami a few times before that. But it really all started in the UK. And really by chance,” she said.
Pia and Jeremy confirmed their relationship through a magazine feature in June 2020.
