While she reciprocates the admiration of “The Iron Heart” actor Jake Cuenca, actress Chie Filomeno said their relationship still has no label.

“Wala pang label,” the “Love in 40 Days” actress said of her relationship status with Cuenca, but she shared that “we’re talking,” adding that they are taking their time as Cuenca is aware of Filomeno’s priority.


“Nag-uusap kami po, and siguro, taking time din kasi alam din naman niya kung ano ‘yung priority ko in life. And he’s really understanding,” Filomeno explained during an interview on “Magandang Buhay” which aired yesterday, June 8.


(We’re talking and, I guess, we’re also taking our time because he knows my priority in life. And he’s really understanding.)

Cuenca has been vocal about his admiration for the former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate in his interviews, including in the same talk show which aired last month. Filomeno was shown snippets of Cuenca’s interview, and said she was happy that the award-winning actor has been open about his feelings for her.

“Actually, flattering din ‘yung sinabi niya kasi hindi lahat ng lalaki vocal sa feelings nila. And I’m happy na he’s vocal sa feelings niya sa’kin,” the “Love Thy Woman” cast member said, adding that “I do admire him also…and I look up to him.”

(Actually, what he said is also flattering because not all men are vocal about their feelings. And I’m happy that he’s vocal about his feelings for me.)

Despite saying that her relationship with Cuenca still “has no label,” which could mean she has not formally entered into a relationship with him, Filomeno disagreed with the idea of getting into a relationship without a label, when asked about it.

“[F]or me, ang label talaga importante din [sa relationship] kasi para may common ground kayo. Like, walang misunderstanding. Alam niyo you’re on the same page. ‘Yun ‘yung relationship for me,” she shared.


(For me, having a label [for the relationship] is also truly important for you to have a common ground. Like, there’s no misunderstanding. You both know you’re on the same page. That’s what a relationship is for me.)

Rumors of an alleged budding romance between the two started to surface when netizens noticed Cuenca’s frequent trips to and reactions on the actress’ Instagram posts.  /ra
