Eight years after forming an unexpected love team on the noontime show Eat Bulaga!, actor Alden Richards finally answered the question of whether he fell in love with fellow host Maine Mendoza.

In an interview with Boy Abunda on Fast Talk with Boy Abunda’s Monday episode, the 31-year-old actor bravely faced the question of Asia’s King of Talk.

“Did you fall for Maine?” asked Boy.

“Yes, hypocrite po ako kung hindi. Ayoko pong sabihing alam niya but I did confess,” Alden confessed.

Alden didn’t state any further details on when, how, or what happened after he confessed to the phenomenal star.

However, the “Five Breakups and A Romance” star shared how he considered his tandem with Maine as his “biggest romance” and “biggest breakup”.

He also expressed how grateful he was to Eat Bulaga! and Maine for giving him the opportunities he had experienced during the AlDub days.

“Romance, yes, Tito Boy. Ang daming opportunities na dumating po sa buhay ko because of it. I’m very grateful to Maine. I’m very grateful to ‘Eat Bulaga,’ by all means. Sincerely,” the multi-hyphenated actor said.

“Kasi parang dun ko po naramdaman na talagang when you work hard for something, si Lord, ‘pag may hinihingi ka, hindi niya ‘yan ibibigay sa panahong gusto mong makuha. He always has this magic of giving it at the right timing. But break up, Tito Boy, yes,” he added.

He then explained that “breaking up” with AlDub means growing and moving forward as individuals.

“A breakup. But let’s remove the negative context of break up in this conversation with AlDub. It doesn’t necessarily mean that when you’re going through a breakup, laging masama, laging masakit, laging malungkot,” Alden continued.

“It was a breakup because both of us, Maine and I, we needed growth. We needed to venture into our individual life, you know to learn [to] move,” he said.

AlDub became popular in 2015 when Alden and Maine were accidentally paired during the noontime show’s segment “Kalyeserye”. That time, Maine was introduced as “Yaya Dub”, the nanny of Wally Bayola’s character, “Lola Nidora”.

Since then, AlDub made waves online landing on the trending spot every day as the audience witnessed their onscreen romance hindered by Lola Nidora.

In 2018, the two had both decided to go on separate ways with Alden pursuing leading roles on teleseryes while Maine starred in the comedy show, “Daddy’s Gurl” with Vic Sotto.

On the other hand, Alden and Maine remained as good friends and as hosts of Eat Bulaga! back then.
