We are all rooting for one of our favorite stars Angelica Panganiban to find her one true love. The actress has been very open about her romantic relationships, which made us happy for her at one point—but also affected in another.

It seems, however, that the Bidang Kontrabida Angelica recently dropped juicy hints of her newfound love on social media. Take note that before that “Baby Pudding, Now, it’s out” post, it was the General’s Daughter actor Cholo Barretto who had posted really sweet photos first with the actress since June.

So how did everything really begin?

Siargao with friends

June 25: Cholo posted on Instagram his photo with Angelica vacationing in Siargao where the two were joined by some of their showbiz friends. The actor captioned his photo with “Nagsimula sa kwentuhan, natapos sa kasiyahan. Iba ka prisidinti! Napa egg roll ako!!!”

This was preceded by a solo photo of Angelica resting on a bean bag near the pool.

The photos already brought rumors that the two might be dating, but as close friends, netizens could not confirm just yet.

Sweet comments

Five days after Cholo’s last post about Angelica, he posted another photo from their Siargao trip where the actress left comments saying “Happy weekendsary!”. The actor replied, calling Angelica ‘pudding’: “Happy weekendsary, pudding!!! Kamusta first day mo jan? #letskillthislove ba?” They continued to exchange comments with their inside jokes.

Sending a message

On July 22, Angelica and Cholo were again spotted together. In Angelica’s Instagram stories, they were showing off a liquor brand that sounds like suspityoso but that could also be pertaining to ‘suspicious netizens.’

Already official?

In an ABS-CBN News report, Angelica laughed at the rumors, saying that her fans have always put a romantic spin on the things she does. However, on July 25, the actress posted on Instagram stories her photo with Cholo saying “Baby Pudding, Now, it’s out”

It was followed by a post saying “Magkakagulo na naman” to Cholo.

A good friend and The General’s Daughter lead star Angel Locsin is one of the first to congratulate Angelica and Cholo on her Instagram stories.

Historically, Angelica had experienced long-term relationships. Her first relationship with Carlo Aquino lasted for six years. They rekindled love in 2018 but later on broke up. Angelica was also in a relationship for seven years with actor Derek Ramsay and more than three years with actor John Lloyd Cruz. 

So, is it: Congratulations, lovebirds?
