MANILA – Actor Enchong Dee surprised his fans when he admitted that he already has a girlfriend and that their relationship has been going on for several months now.
Dee made the admission in an interview with “The Buzz” which aired on Sunday, although he refused to identify the girl.
However, he said she keeps him inspired and he is glad that he has been able to protect her privacy.
“Non-showbiz siya. Wala pang isang taon. It just happened. It’s not a plan. We saw each other, we talked, we shared numbers and then 'yun na,” he said.
While his siblings have already met his girlfriend, Dee said he intends to keep their relationship private.
“Yun ang kagandahan sa non-showbiz kasi unless you tell the people, no one will find out. I’m happy na low-key lang. It will take time. I want her life to be private, I want her life to be away from all the buzz,” he said.
The last person who was romantically linked to Dee prior to his current relationship was actress Julia Montes.
Dee and Montes were rumored to be a couple after starring in two films in 2012. They were reported to have supposedly broken up in October that same year.
The two, however, reportedly reconciled late last year when they co-starred in the Kapamilya primetime series "Muling Buksan ang Puso."
