Sam Milby revealed he is dating 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Gray when he posted a photo with the beauty queen on his Instagram account, writing “Worth every second of the wait. Most special birthday yet.”
Sam Milby celebrated his 36th birthday on May 22 via a livestream event where friends surprised him with greetings online. Dubbed “Lunch with the Stars: Sam Milby Birthday Special,” the program was mounted by his talent management group, Cornerstone Entertainment, which also manages Catriona.
John Prats and comedian Pooh hosted the birthday special and teased a visibly excited Milby when Gray’s video greeting came up.
The beauty queen simply said, “Hey, Sam! Happy, happy birthday. I hope that you have an amazing year ahead. More birthdays. More happiness. You are loved by so, so many,” but Milby’s reaction was a giveaway.
“I’m kilig sa message, super kilig sa message. Hindi ko in-expect talaga na mag-message. Thank you. Yes, you are very special. Very special,” he effused.
Milby and Gray were rumored to be dating in late 2019 when some photos of them together circulated on social media. Gray denied them in an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” in January this year.
She said they were spending a lot of time together only because they went to the same church and had the same management company. “Friend naman siya,” Gray said then.
Milby’s post could not be an direct confirmation they are officially a couple but reveals their friendship is levelling up.
