Fans were sent in a kilig overdrive after Paulo Avelino posted photos of a woman by the beach that appears to be Janine Gutierrez.
On March 28, the "Kasal" actor shared two snaps of a woman wearing a blazer and sneakers, with only her back being shown.
While he did not put any caption nor tagged the woman in the photos, eagle-eyed netizens were quick to identify it was Janine for two reasons: first, they are both in the United States to join Ogie Alcasid's US concert tour, and second, netizens think that the shoes from the photos were the same sneakers Janine was wearing in her post last March 27.
Janine, for her part, also posted a photo with Paulo on March 30, taken from the first night of Ogie's concert in California.
"Our first night with Sir @ogiealcasid for ‘OA Sa Love’ in the USA! Thank you Glendale, CA for being so welcoming and starting our concert tour on a high! ILY ❤️❤️❤️" she wrote in the caption.
Prior to flying to the US, Janine was asked about the level of her relationship with Paulo during the virtual media conference of Ogie's US tour. The two were recently spotted on a Palawan trip with their "Marry Me, Marry You" co-stars Edu Manzano and Cherry Pie Picache.
