We’re finally in an age where finding your lifelong lover or partner could just be one click away. But for this beauty queen, it took a couple of clicks for her crush to notice her.
Pia Wurtzbach—model, actress, beauty-queen —is no stranger to online dating. The 2015 Miss Universe Queen admitted that she met Marlon Stockinger, a Fil-Swiss race-car driver, on the Internet. She revealed this during a makeup tutorial video by Fil-Am beauty vlogger, Patrick Starr.
“I found my boyfriend on Instagram,” she told Patrick.
The Fil-German supermodel confirmed that she checked out his account during her reign, keeping her eye on the crown and her other eye on the prize.
Pia has had a crush on Marlon ever since, but lost her confidence that he would ever notice her when she kept losing in Binibining Pilipinas.
She, however, mustered up her spirit and got the first move when she wore the Miss Universe crown in 2015.
“I’ve started liking a few pictures to kind of knock on a door, let him know I’m here,” she said.
Marlon then saw that his feed started blowing up and probably DM’d Pia that he noticed it.
“He wasn’t (following me). He didn’t even know who I was,” Pia said.
She said she was completely fine with their situation and that believe in their low-key approach to being together.
According to GMA news, Pia Wurtzbach confirmed her relationship with Marlon Stockinger, last January.
