MANILA – Daniel Matsunaga and Erich Gonzales were spotted spending some quality time together in Hong Kong over the weekend amid persistent rumors that they are now officially a couple.
While neither of them has gone on record to confirm whether they are already in a relationship, Matsunaga and Gonzales did not mind sharing photos of their short vacation on their respective Instagram pages.
In one of the photos, Matsunaga said he feels happy to be spending time with Gonzales, who he called his “minha linda.” The Portuguese phrase translates to: "My beautiful."
Gonzales, for her part, captioned one of their photos with: “Thank you God for days like this that makes me happy.”
Last Wednesday, Gonzales’ good friend, TV host Kris Aquino, announced that the actress and her her non-showbiz boyfriend have ended their four-year relationship.
Aquino also clarified that, contrary to rumors, Gonzales was never engaged. She explained that fans may have confused Gonzales' "promise ring," which she wore in past TV guestings, as a sign that she already had a fiance.
In a February interview on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight," Matsunaga said that he would pursue Gonzales romantically if she were "free," but stressed that he would keep a distance from her out of respect for her relationship at the time.
