Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson have spoken up anew about their relationship status amid speculations that they have called it quits.
In a report by ABS-CBN News published today, August 9, the “Darna: The TV Series” actress confirmed that she and Markus are “okay” without revealing details about their current label and dynamic.
“Okay naman kami, let’s leave it at that na lang muna. Basta okay kami,” she spoke of her relationship with Markus, the father of her one-year-old son, Jude.
“We are both happy as individuals. And our main priority is Jude,” she said.
Speaking for herself, Janella added, “Masaya naman ako, at peace, very content.”
Meanwhile, Markus shared similar sentiments in an exclusive interview with Star Magic's Inside News: “Ang puso ko ay masaya, peaceful, and life is good.”
He explained, “I’m excited for this month. I’m excited to start working again. Yeah, life is good. This year so far has been a rollercoaster ride but who doesn't love rollercoasters, ‘di ba? Masaya naman 'yun.”
When it comes to his relationship with Janella, the “Hello, Stranger: The Movie” actor had only positive things to say.
"Ang importante lang sa aming dalawa na she's happy, I’m happy, our hearts are both happy. That's important, you know. We’re always there for each other no matter what," he revealed.
Breakup rumors surrounding their relationship started brewing when the “Bloody Crayons” actress reportedly did not attend Markus’ birthday party last June.
It was also in June when Markus set the record straight that they have a “very good” relationship while Janella asked for fans to “respect their privacy” for now.
