Fans of the AlDub pair are hoping that the split-screen couple of Eat Bulaga’s phenomenal kalye-serye will have a happy ending.
Why else did the AlDub nation weep with Alden Richards when a dying Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) pleaded that he allow his lady love Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) to marry Frankie Arinolli (Jose Manalo)?
In a strange twist of fate the wedding was called off on August 22, and the couple along with millions of AlDub followers rejoiced.
Twitter exploded with more than two million tweets.
“Tuloy ang forever,” said Richards’ sign. Yaya Dub’s smile was priceless.
Will forever mean becoming a couple in real life?
Tabloid reports said that Richards’ father believed his son was falling for Mendoza.
But would the young actor dubbed “Pambansang Dimple” stand a chance if he courted TV’s most loved Yaya?
A source told NewsCentral.PH that Mendoza’s father Teddy was strict and has offered his daughter a monthly incentive so that she won’t have a boyfriend.
“Hindi papayagan ng dad nya na magka-boyfriend si Maine. The dad is strict kaya nag- o-offer ng kung anu-ano wag lang mag-boyfriend,” said the source who requested anonymity.
(Maine’s dad won’t allow her to have a boyfriend. The dad is strict that’s why he’s been making all kinds of offers to her so that she won’t have a boyfriend.)
Mendoza’s father, a contractor, is very protective of his three daughters.
Maine is the fourth among five children. Only one of them is married, Mendoza’s older sister.
Yaya Dub’s mother Mary Ann manages several family-owned gasoline stations.
“Her parents came from humble beginnings. They are very low-key,” our source said.
The source also confirmed what many fans and followers believe — Mendoza has a crush on Richards.
“Yup talagang crush nya si Alden!”
(Yup. Alden’s really her crush.)
