In a press conference for Mercator Models, Miss Universe 2010 4th runner-up Venus Raj revealed that she is currently in a relationship with Andrei Felix, one of her co-hosts on morning show Umagang Kay Ganda, PEP.ph reports. They have been together for four months.

Venus said they started getting really close to each other around October or November 2011. "Hindi na kami kailangan magligawan pa siguro kasi maayos na ang pagkakakilala namin sa isa’t isa. Wala na kaming ilangan pa with one another (No courting happened because we already knew each other well. There were no awkward moments between us)," the beauty queen is quoted as saying.
“Imagine, every morning magkasama kami. Start of the day pa lang, maganda na ang lahat. Hanggang sa pag-uwi ‘yan (Imagine, we're together every morning. So the day starts out great and remains that way until we have to go home)," she added. "There is something to look forward to every day, ‘di ba?"

Venus shared that Andrei was her first showbiz boyfriend. "Matagal na rin yung naging last relationship ko. Batang-bata pa ako noon. Ngayong mature na ako, ready na ako to get into a new relationship. (It's been a while since my last relationship. I was really young then. Now that I'm more mature, I'm ready to get into a new relationship.)"

She said that they are both very simple people, which was why their relationship works. "Hindi ako humihiling ng mamahaling regalo mula kay Andrei. Yung magkausap lang kami at magkuwentuhan, masaya na ako roon. (I don't ask him for expensive gifts. I'm already happy with good conversation.)"

She also said she was aware of Andrei's past relationships--Andrei is one of actress Jennylyn Mercado's ex-boyfriends. "Wala naman siyang tinatago sa akin at gano’n din ako sa kanya. Ganyan kami ka-open with one another kaya nagkakasundo kami. Mabait kasi si Andrei, at tulad ko, mababaw din ang kaligayahan niya. (He doesn't hide anything from me, and I'm the same way. That's how open we are to each other, and that's why we get along. Andrei is kind, and like me, it doesn't take much to make him happy.)"
