The post sent the Internet into a frenzy and fans became skeptical as to how these two became an item.

Rumors


It was last year when rumors of Catriona Gray and Sam Milby dating began.

In an episode of Tonight with Boy Abunda last December 2019, Catriona was asked as to who Sam Milby is in her life. The Beauty Queen downplayed it by saying that she and Sam Milby are just friends who go to the same church and are under the same talent management firm, which is Cornerstone.


Sightings


Last January 2019, a photo of Catriona Gray and Sam Milby circulated on social media. 


The two were seen together alongside Catriona’s father, Ian Gray. 

A netizen who was in the area was able to capture a photo, which was immediately posted on Twitter.

According to a Push article, the sighting was purely coincidental. Cornerstone Entertainment founder Erickson Raymundo explained that before Catriona started her ‘reign’, he already made a promise to invite her to his farm in Tanay. It just so happened that Sam Milby and other Cornerstone talents were there, too.


Dropping Hints


Looks like Sam Milby cannot contain his kilig when Catriona Gray gave him a surprise birthday greeting during a Facebook livestream to celebrate his 36th Birthday.


In the video, Catriona Gray said, “Hey, Sam! Happy, happy birthday. I hope that you have an amazing year ahead. More birthdays. More happiness. You are loved by so, so many.”

Sam Milby, who was obviously feeling giddy, took a couple of minutes to gather himself before he could reply. Eventually he said, "Basta I’m kilig sa message, super kilig sa message. Hindi ko in-expect talaga na mag-message."


He also added, "Thank you. Yes, you are very special. Very special."


The Big Revelation


To celebrate his 36th birthday, the actor made a big announcement on his Instagram account.


He posted a polaroid photo of him and Catriona Gray with a caption, "Worth every second of the wait. Most special birthday yet."
