She hesitated to answer at first, but eventually gave in:
“Boyfriend?! A… yes po.”

In case you missed it, speculations that the two have gone from reel-to-real were sparked when Julian opened up about his desire to court Ella.
In an interview with PEP in April of last year, Julian candidly answered:
“Kung may feelings ako [para kay Ella], hindi na question yun. It’s there, it’s just a matter of time na lang, e. Puwede namang isabay ‘yan sa work, but the thing is… both of us decided na huwag na lang. Huwag na lang natin unahan ang pangyayari.”
