1 Jun – After months of speculations, Pia Wurtzbach and businessman Jeremy Jauncey finally confirmed that they are indeed in a relationship.

As reported on Rappler, the reveal was made in the June issue of Tatler Philippines, in which both Wurtzbach and Jauncey were selected to grace the cover which was shot by photographer Nigel Barker.

"There was definitely an immediate spark. We couldn't stop talking. I found him to be such a warm person and I like that he was always smiling," Wurtzbach said of her first meeting with Jauncey in London.

The beauty queen stated that Jauncey respected the space she wanted as she was just coming out of her relationship with racer Marlon Stockinger at the time.

"She sets the parameters and I happily accepted. It was a chance to show that I was serious about her and that I want to be a gentleman about it, which was very important to me," said Jauncey.

The beauty queen added, "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."

Rumours of romance between the two sparked early this year when both Jauncey and Wurtzbach shared similar photos from their vacations.
