Comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas found love again, this time, in the person of  20-year-old De La Salle University student Gerald Sibayan.

In a report published by Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) on Monday, September 15, Gerald confirmed that he and Ai Ai have been a couple for a long time now.

“Opo. God bless you,” Gerald told PEP.

Secret identity

Ai-Ai, who will turn 50 in November,  told reporters she doesn’t want to reveal her bofriend's identity. But she has always been posting her photos with Gerald on her Instagram account. On Sunday, September 14, Ai-Ai posted a photo with Gerald and her son Sancho attending  Sunday mass.

Ai Ai seems to have a good relationship with her boyfriend’s family, as she sometimes posts her photos together with Gerald’s family and friends. Her children also seem to approve of their relationship, based on their photos together on Instagram.

While netizens have mixed reactions over their relationship, Ai-Ai posted her daughter Sophia’s message of support, saying that her mom deserves to be happy. 

“Whatever life gives you even if it already hurts too much, just be strong and trust Him. 😌 Always remember that a woman should be pursued and every woman should be loved. You deserve to be happy ma. You should just focus on yourself right now and don't let anyone bring you down. They don't know you like how we -- your family & friends -- know you. They don't know the things you've been through, they just know the things they see on camera. People will always judge, but the important thing is we know the truth, HE knows the truth and that's the only thing that matters.” 

Because of this, Ai-Ai thanked her children for their “unconditional love.”
