Sam Pinto is in love!
The two-time winner of FHM Sexiest Woman title does not usually reveal details about her love life.
But for her current relationship, her Instagram account @sampinto_, which now has close to a million followers, has been doing the talking.
The guy's name is Misagh Bahadoran, a Filipino-Persian playing for the Azkals.
This 29-year-old athlete is also a dentist.
His primary reason for coming back to the Philippines in 2004 was to finish his studies in Mabalacat, Pampanga.
Six years later, he finished Dentistry at Centro Escolar University.
As a football player, Misagh's goals last year had been impressive.
On June 15, he scored his first international goal giving the Philippines a 2–1 win against Bahrain at the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification second round.
On June 20, 2015, he scored the Philippines' first goal in a 2-0 win over Yemen.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had the chance to talk to the actress at the launch of MAC Cosmetics' Flamingo collection.
She began, "Yup, we're together. We’re good, we’re very happy."
How long have they been dating?
"Ah, ilang months na ba kami? Three months. Still new. Happy face."
A trivia: she introduced Misagh to surfing.
"I’m the one who’ve been surfing. Four years na. Matagal na.
"And that was his first time to surf in the beach."
Then, she encouraged everyone to give surfing a try.
"Oh my god, it’s a full body workout. Siguro mga four days surfing, pagdating ko sa Manila, macho na ‘ko kaagad,
‘Anong nangyari sa body ko?’"
She and Misagh frequent San Juan, La Union.
"If you’re new, meron namang instructor na magtuturo sa iyo the proper way to stand up, when to stand up, mga gano’n."
It's not that easy though.
"To actually learn how to do it on your own, it took me years, two years. Especially with my work, I can’t go there to practice, di ba, kasi ang layo.
"So medyo matagal-tagal."
Where is she spending her Holy Week?
"Wala pa. Zero plans yet. But hopefully I can go surf, but will see."
