It's confirmed! Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, 30, and travel editor-entrepreneur Jeremy Jauncey, 34, are exclusively dating.
The two confirmed their relationship with a cover feature on luxury magazine Tatler Philippines.
Jeremy, who grew up in Scotland, revealed that the Filipino-German beauty queen blew him away when they first met in London.
Likewise, Pia felt an "immediate spark" between them. The beauty queen shared, "We couldn't stop talking. I found him to be such a warm person and I like that he was always smiling."
Making it public
Earlier this year, Pia and Jeremy sparked dating rumors, but they kept mum about it.
In their Tatler Philippines interview, the couple divulged that they focused on setting "a good foundation for the relationship" before going public.
Jeremy said, "I've always felt a close connection to the Filipinos because they've always been kind to me. So to all detectives out there, thank you! We knew how much we liked each other, but we wanted to spend quality time with each other and build something strong before we made any official announcements."
Meanwhile, Pia also didn't want to repeat the same mistake of "sharing too much too soon."
She said, "We wanted to make sure we set a good foundation for our relationship before we came out in the open. I've made a mistake of sharing too much too soon before, and I wanted to make sure I did it right this time."
Pia's last relationship was with Filipino-Swiss racer Marlon Stockinger. The two broke up last December 2019 after three years of being together.
