Janine Gutierrez Feels Relieved After Admitting Relationship With Elmo MagalonaJanine Gutierrez was surprised but relieved that boyfriend Elmo Magalona admitted their relationship to the public.
They just recently admitted their relationship despite denying it in recent months, only saying they're exclusively dating.
They didn't talk about their revelation, so Janine was surprised when Elmo told the press about them during the pocket press conference for "More Than Words."
She's flattered that Elmo decided to tell the world about them. She can also see that he's happy to be with her. "Actually, sobrang positive ng nararamdaman ko after niyang umamin."
She feels freer now to talk about her relationship with Elmo because there's nothing to hide anymore.
Janine didn't reveal the exact month when they became officially a couple, although they have been together for "a few months." They only started dating after the end of "Villa Quintana," not while doing it.
The actress explained that they never intentionally hid their relationship. Because it's new to them, they just want to enjoy it privately.
They thought that if many knew about them, that's all they're going to ask them. For a while, they wanted to keep it to themselves.
She doesn't think this will negatively affect their careers. The best thing about them is they are a loveteam, so their fans will support them.
"I don't think it will be a problem, kasi we get to help each other out sa trabaho."
Janine is five years older than Elmo, who's only 20 years old.
Meanwhile, Janine said her parents, Lotlot de Leon and Ramon Christopher, are supportive of her relationship because they also know Elmo.
They already met him before, and have gotten to know him during special occasions that they spend together. Even her grandmother, Pilita Corales, really likes Elmo.
Janine is thankful to her family that they accepted Elmo. She also feels welcomed by Elmo's mother, Pia Magalona. She even texted her when she hosted Miss World to wish her goodluck.
Elmo's whole family, in fact, is very nice to her, Janine said.
