After pairing up in many TikTok dances together and sharing sweet glances on television, Kapuso stars Rayver Cruz and Julie Ann finally made official what everyone around them already knew — that they are sweethearts.

Cruz and San Jose made their relationship official when the two exchanged “I love yous” during the singer-actress’ “Julieverse” concert last Saturday, Nov. 26.

“Naalala mo nung birthday mo, sinabi ko naman sa’yo kung anong nararamdaman ko. Gusto ko lang din iparinig sa kanila. Julie Anne San Jose, I love you. I love you so much,” Cruz told Asia’s Pop Sweetheart during her concert.

In response, San Jose said, “Gusto ko lang sabihin na sobrang thankful ako sa ‘yo. Ang dami nang nagbago sa buhay ko simula nung dumating ka. Kaya gusto kong sabihin: I love you, too.”

The audience at the Newport Performing Arts Theater burst into cheers more so as the two seemingly sealed their romance not with a kiss but with a hug.

When this writer asked Cruz’s manager, Albert Chua, to confirm through a private message if the two are now officially a couple, his replay was “Official na.”

Last May, during San Jose’s birthday celebration, Cruz declared his love for the Maria Clara at Ibarra actress, in which he was shown in a video on Instagram saying: “Blessing ka sa lahat ng tao, blessing ka for me. You inspire everyone, especially me.”

The actor also said he is grateful to San Jose’s family for allowing him to court her in their house.

“Gusto ko magpasalamat sa iyo, sa pamilya mo. Thank you po sa pamilya ni Juls, sa mga kapatid kasi nakakabisita ako sa inyo,” he said.

Cruz declared his willingness to wait for San Jose’s yes no matter how long it would take.

“Gusto ko lang sabihin is nandirito lang ako, maghihintay ako kahit gaano katagal. Kapag ready ka na and kapag okay na kay Tito at Tita, palagi lang akong nandito. Mahal kita. Happy birthday,” he said. EDV
