Jhong Hilario may be a comedian, but he sure knows when to be serious when it comes to love. It seems like our “Sample King” has finally found the one for him, and we are getting major “kilig” vibes. Meet Maia Azores, the woman of Jhong’s dreams!
For starters, Jhong and Maia have been in a relationship for more than seven years already! Yes, that’s more than a decade. However, they never seem to run out of sparks. In fact, they seem to keep their relationship exciting by always going out on dates whenever they can and spending quality time with each other.
Like any other relationship, Jhong and Maia’s is not without hardships. In the past, the couple were faced with adversity when Maia’s parents expressed their opposition to the two’s relationship. Thankfully, Jhong never gave up, eventually proving to Maia’s parents that he really loves their daughter and that his intentions are noble.
“Ito kasi ‘yong babaeng ipinaglaban ko talaga kahit sinabing hiwalayan na. Mali ko lang din kasi nag-aaral pero no’ng nalaman ng family na ako ‘yong boyfriend, and siyempre dumaan sa masusing pag-iimbestiga ‘yan, kung ako ba ‘yong Gary sa Mara Clara, pero na-prove ko naman sa kanila na malinis ang intensyon ko.”
Well, we are very happy for you, Jhong and Maia!
