MANILA - Rumors about the sexuality of Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere started going around after some got a little too nosy with her Instagram photos. 

After seeing her getting cozy with a female friend, many were quick to jump to the conclusion that she's a lesbian. Having an openly gay woman as Miss Universe would have been unprecedented. 

But as it turned out, Mittenaere, the first Frenchwoman to win the Miss Universe crown in decades, has a boyfriend, dentist Matthieu Declercq. She told GMA News that she's in love with him.

While the two may not share many photos together online, Declercq was seen supporting his lady love during the coronation night of the 65th Miss Universe pageant here in the Philippines. 

And based on their Instagram posts, the two also have a lot in common such as their penchant for travelling and football aside from their love for oral hygiene.
