MANILA, Philippines - The Chiz Escudero-Heart Evangelista love affair continues to unravel on Twitter, with the actress opting for a very public birthday greeting for the senator on Wednesday.
"Happy birthday@SayChiz," she posted shortly after 7 am.
The birthday boy sent his curt response to Evangelista at about 10 am, saying, "@heart021485 Thank u ma'am! Good morning... :)."
The exchange made their followers go giddy.
"swweeetttt," said one.
"Kilig! Hehehe.." posted another.
"CHIZ-zy!:)" said yet another.
It was only a few days ago that Escudero admitted his relationship with Evangelista via a talk show.
Evangelista acknowledged the declaration a day later by expressing her apparent happiness over the matter.
Prior, Evangelista seemingly dropped hints of what was soon to come via the tweet, "I miss you Chiz curls!" However, she quickly went on to deny that it was about the 43-year-old senator.
Meanwhile, fellow senator and Senate President Pro-Tempore Jinggoy Estrada can't help but join the fray. He had described his colleague as "blooming" in a recent senate session, with the rest of the chamber reacting with knowing smiles.
Miriam Defensor-Santiago, another senate colleague of Escudero's, earlier claimed responsibility for introducing the two, which led to the duo's brewing romance.
