Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is really the apple of Marlon Stockinger's eye right now.
Even the 85 Miss Universe 2016 candidates cannot distract the car racer from focusing on his beauty-queen girlfriend at the Preliminary Competition of the most prestigious beauty pageant held at the SM MOA Arena earlier tonight, January 26.
Marlon even posted a photo of Pia, with co-host Derek Ramsay, on his Twitter account.
He said on the caption: "A lot of beautiful contestants tonight at the prelims but I still pick the host ftw @PiaWurtzbach ;) #MissUniverse"
Fans can expect more cheesy posts from Marlon and Pia after the Pinay beauty queen relinquishes her Miss-Universe crown on Monday, January 30.
In an interview with The Bottomline last January 21, Saturday, Pia admitted that she and Marlon will be spending more time together after her reign.
She also said about their relationship, “Masaya ako na hindi na ako naiilang to talk about it.
“I know, like before, nahihiya ako to talk about my personal life or my past relationship, kasi parang hindi ako kumportable.
“Iniisip ko kung ano ang sasabihin ng mga tao, at saka sa sarili ko, hindi rin ako sigurado.
“With Marlon, I feel like it's so easy. At saka, I'm not like forced to talk about him.
“I wanna talk about him, I'm going to talk about him because I want to.
“It's not because of something else.
"I'm just happy na hindi ako baliw na baliw, in love na in love. Yung sakto lang, tama lang.
“It's very smooth, very stable. I'm still focused on my goals.”
NO WEDDING TALKS YET. Asked about settling down, Pia was quick to reply: "Definitely not there yet. We don't talk about these things."
She added, “But I'm very happy that I met somebody who understands that this is my job and that I will continue working after, that I'm a career-driven woman and I have aspirations outside settling down.
“You know what, he's the same. We're just the same, we're go-getters.
“You know, I have my own set of goals, he has his own set of goals.
“We're together but we're moving forward.”
Marlon said almost the same thing during his interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda last January 24, Tuesday.
He said, “I think it’s just nice to take it day by day without that pressure
“Pia obviously has her reign, and after her reign, she’ll continue to be working and have commitments to things.
“So, we’re just taking it slowly."
