MANILA – Fans of James Reid and Nadine Lustre are surely missing seeing the two together.
This was proven on Monday when Lustre trended on Twitter Philippines after only posting an old photo of her and Reid together on Instagram.
Fans assumed that the post was Lustre’s way of greeting her former boyfriend, who is celebrating his 27th birthday today.
While she made an effort to tag Reid in the picture, Lustre only captioned it with a seedling emoji and nothing more.
But even this did not escape their supporters, with some of them going out of their way to search for the meaning of the caption.
Their fans even shared on Twitter what the seedling emoji supposedly means which is to “convey new beginnings or starting over.”
As of writing, Lustre’s post already has close to half a million likes in only three hours.
Reid and Lustre, who would have celebrated their fourth anniversary last February 11, had said they decided to part ways to “focus on ourselves not only for our careers but more for our personal growth.”
Reid and Lustre had their showbiz breakthrough in 2014 via the big-screen romcom “Diary ng Panget,” launching one of the biggest love teams among their contemporaries.
Both Viva artists at the time, they successfully transitioned to television as contract stars of ABS-CBN, where they starred in back-to-back drama series, “On the Wings of Love” in 2015 and “Till I Met You” in 2016.
When they started filming the latter, their onscreen loveteam had already grown into a real-life romance. That romantic milestone unfolded in February 2016, when Reid declared his love for Lustre at the close of their joint concert at the Araneta Coliseum.
Their breakup, however, seems amicable as the two were still spotted together post-split before the lockdown.
