MANILA—Over the past two years, actor Paulo Avelino and his girlfriend, model Jodie Tarasek, have managed to keep their relationship low profile.
The exception, it seems, are special occasions and milestones in their romance, such as their second anniversary.
On Instagram, Tarasek penned a heartwarming message for Avelino in celebration of his birthday, as well as their second year as a couple, thanking him “for being my human.”
“[Thank you] for teaching me that people cannot ruin beautiful things they don’t know about. That it’s the little things like letting me tie your hair in pigtails or saving me the last bite of anything without me even asking,” she wrote.
“You’re the epitome of simplicity and humility and I can’t wait to do more of life with you. Happy Birthday my love. And Happy 2 years,” Tarasek added.
Avelino, who turned 31 on Monday, May 13, has strictly kept private his relationship with Tarasek despite being one of the most visible actors on film and television.
While the couple made a public appearance together at the 2017 Star Magic Ball, Avelino has been evasive in interviews whenever his personal life is brought up.
