Over the weekend, a new Binibinig Pilipinas winner was crowned in Fil-German model/actress Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. Third time’s the charm for Wurtzbach, as she finally claimed the pageant’s highest honor on her third consecutive try.
Of course, what are beauty pageants without rumours?
After the Bb. Pilipinas coronation night last Sunday, ABS-CBN Sports posted that Wurtzbach was reportedly dating Azkals star Phil Younghusband. Wurtzbach admitted that they had dated before, but that they are currently focused on their respective careers right now.
During a Press Conference for the newly launched Azkals Mobile Service, ABS-CBN Sports caught up with Younghusband managed to get a confirmation from the Fil-Brit striker.
"Yeah, we did date before, but no longer are we dating, so that's that."
This came after Younghusband congratulated and praised the 25-year old Wurtzbach for her most recent accomplishment.
"Congratulations to Pia, Pia's a friend, she's worked very hard for this, and she's so passionate and she deserves everything she gets out of it, so congratulations to Pia for winning!"
It's going to be quite a busy year ahead for these two, as Younghusband and the rest of the Philippine Azkals are gearing up for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, while Wurtzbach will have a year's worth of obilgations as the newly crowned Binibining Pilipinas.
