The phenomenal onscreen couple mark July 16, 2015 as the official day when their tandem started on the “Kalyeserye” segment of the variety show “Eat Bulaga.”
The love team’s name AlDub was coined from the names of their characters on Kalyeserye: “Alden” and “Yaya Dub” (Maine).
The two stars now each have their solo projects.
“We’re able to do more, hindi na-stuck as a pair na we’re learning as individuals and then eventually, we’ll learn and experience new things again,” Alden said.
Still, he apologized for disappointing the fans who still want to see them together.
“We want to apologize because a certain need or demand was not met siguro that’s why ganun yung reaksyon nila,” Alden said. /vvp
