Actors Paulo Avelino and Janine Gutierrez got real about the status of their relationship.

During a Zoom for Ogie Alcasid’s series of concerts dubbed “OA Sa Love In The USA” in California later this month and in April, Janine was asked about her working relationship with Paulo. She said: I enjoy working with Pau and I think marami pa kaming magagawa together. So I’m looking forward to it.”

On the other hand, Paulo said he’s hopeful that he and Janine will have a follow-up project soon. Paulo and Janine appeared together in the TV series “Marry Me, Marry You” on ABS-CBN. But fans believe that the Kapamilya stars are an item.

Asked about the status of their relationship, Paulo said: “Busy ako ngayon. May ginagawa akong isang project ngayon na sikreto ako na kasama ako. Si Janine naman katatapos lang ng isang iWant series niya. So work muna.”

Janine, 32, described her current relationship with Paulo on a happy level. “Sa masayang level. Happy lang and I’m looking forward to this trip. Still grateful sa lahat ng pinagsamahan.”

Paulo said: “HIndi ko alam kung may dapat aminin dahil may kanya kanya kaming trabaho at ginagawa. Tignan natin. Malay mo kausapin na ako ni Janine pag nasa US na since hindi niya ako kinakausap since ‘Marry Me, Marry You.’ “

While in the US, Paulo, 33, said he will visit his 11-year-old son Aki. “Actually, nasabi ko na sa mommy niya. Tinatanong lang yung dates pero andun na rin ako and I haven’t seen my son.”

Janine is expected to accompany Paulo when he visits his son in New York.

Asked how Paulo would introduce Janine to Aki, the award-winning actor said: “Direcho na. Aki, nanay mo! Joke lang! Pero excited na excited na ako makausap ang anak ko kasi nagi-school na rin siya run.”

“I’m super excited kasi first time kong magi-guest sa isang concert out of the country. First time ko rin nagka-working visa for the US so ang dami kong firsts for this trip. Ang sayang isipin na after two years meron uling audience na makakaharap. So super excited to see everyone in the US,” said Janine.

Paulo said there will be solo and production numbers during the shows. Aside from this, the actor said he can’t wait to visit the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. “Excited akong mapuntahan ang Star Wars Galaxy. Gusto ko s’yang makita. Parang gusto rin pumunta ni Kuya Ogie sa Star Wars Galaxy.” 

The Ogie’s team is expected to leave for Los Angeles on March 24.
