The Kapuso hunk related, “We’re great. I look forward to seeing her every day sa work kapag magkasama kami.
“Kapag iba yung location namin, para kaming it’s so close and yet so far.
“Like, yesterday, we were taping, nasa kabilang location siya. I didn’t get to see her the whole day.
“I saw her at night, maybe for an hour, and then nag-split ulit kami.”
While they often see each other at work, Benjamin said that it would be nice if they get the chance to go on a vacation together.
As it is, they have different plans for the upcoming Holy Week break.
Benjamin said, “Gusto kong magbakasyon.
"I know Julie is going to Subic. She has her panata with her family. I really respect that.
“Ako, maybe I’d go home to Guam.”
Did Julie Anne invite him to go to Subic with her?
He replied, “Yes, she has. But that’s really more of family talaga, e. Maybe some other time in the future.
“With me, I wanna go home. Get to visit my family. Hopefully, if may time.”

The Kapuso actor, for his part, maintained that he’s happy to share his sweet moments with Julie Anne.
“I think the best thing about me and Julie, we made it a point na we share whatever we have with everyone.
“Hindi naman kailangan itago yun, e. Not to border on oversharing—that’s the only thing that we're trying to limit—pero wala naman.
“The fans and everybody that watches our Instagram is as much part of our story or our journey. We make sure that we don’t exclude them.”
To date, Benjamin has yet to confirm that Julie Anne is his girlfriend. But he has been vocal about exclusively dating her for 10 months now.
