MANILA — Arjo Atayde had a ready answer when asked whether he sees his current girlfriend, Maine Mendoza, as his future wife.
“Of course,” the 29-year-old actor said, as quoted by PEP.ph, admitting he and Mendoza have talked about the topic of marriage.
“Obviously, I’m of age already. Nothing to hide. Yes, we got to talk about it,” he said.
When they do get married, Atayde said he would prefer to keep it private, “for myself, for my family, for everyone.”
As it is, Atayde and Mendoza have kept their relationship low profile, save for the rare Instagram post that mark their milestones. Most recently, they greeted each other on their first anniversary as a couple last December.
Behind the scenes, the two have become integrated into each other’s family, with Mendoza spotted a few time with the Ataydes.
Atayde, too, has been welcomed by the Mendoza family, he said.
“Sobrang mabait din po ng family niya,” Atayde said. “Very welcoming din po and very protective din po as well. I love them. Very mabait po sila, wala po akong masabi. Gayundin po ang mga kapatid niya. They’re very kind to me. Very, very kind.”
