MANILA — In an apparent confirmation of her rumored romance with Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian, actress Bianca Manalo on Friday posted a photo of her with the lawmaker, captioned, “This thing called love.”

Manalo also included lyrics from the movie “Grease” in the caption — an apparent reference to Gatchalian wearing a leather jacket in the photo.

While the Instagram post appears to have since been deleted, screenshots of the photo, as well as supportive comments from Manalo’s followers, have circulated online.

The photo, Push reported, was taken during the recent 50th birthday celebration of former senator and now-Sorsoson Gov. Chiz Escudero.

Manalo and Gatchalian were first spotted together in public in November 2018, the same report said. However, neither has gone on record to confirm being in a relationship.
