Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach finally confirmed her relationship with Filipino-Swiss racing car driver Marlon Stockinger.
In an interview with Dyan Castillejo via ANC on Monday, January 16, 2017, Wurtzbach said:
“We are together. I’m glad that I finally met somebody who’s very secure with himself and who understands my job, and who’s not afraid to let me have my moment such as right now, now that the competition is happening here.”
“He’s very understanding, we really get along and… I’m very happy. I also love the fact that he’s a Filipino… and that he’s also a Catholic, and we have a lot of things in common,” she said.
Asked what she loves about Stockinger, she said: “He always makes me laugh. And it’s not forced, the kind where I like him, so that’s why I laugh. There are couples like that, you’re a couple but you know he’s not funny, but you laugh anyway. But no, with him, it’s genuine.”
Wurtzbach is currently in the Philippines, where she is set to crown her successor as Miss Universe on January 30 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
