It’s official! Edu Manzano and Cherry Pie Picache are in a relationship
Edu Manzano confirmed that he is indeed in a relationship with actress Cherry Pie Picache, amid speculations that they are dating.
The actor revealed the real score between him and Picache in a text conversation with broadcaster Cheryl Cosim, shown exclusively on “One Balita Pilipinas” last Friday, Nov. 19.
Cosim asked Manzano to confirm if he and Picache are indeed a couple by sending him a newscast script romantically linking him and Picache, along with the question “How true?”
“You’re the funniest! Yes, my dear,” Manzano answered. The actor was asked by Cosim to confirm the relationship twice, and he answered affirmatively both times.
Fans first speculated that Picache and Manzano are in a romantic relationship after the actress was seen leaning on Manzano’s shoulder during their recent trip to New York City, as per Picache’s Instagram page last Nov. 11. They were accompanied by radio host Tim Yap as well as fellow actors Janine Gutierrez and Arci Muñoz.

Manzano and Picache star in the ongoing ABS-CBN TV series “Marry Me, Marry You.” They play an estranged couple who are also parents to Paulo Avelino’s character Andrei. Dana Cruz/JB
