In Philippine showbiz, love teams date back to as early as the era of silent films in the late 1920s. Which means "shippers" - fans who are rooting for an on-screen tandem to go from "reel" to "real" - have existed for almost a century!
One great example of a love team which went from "reel" to "real" would be Susan Roces and Fernando Poe Jr. The movie legends - who first teamed up in Ang Daigdig Ko'y Ikaw - were married for 36 years until FPJ's death in 2004.
Meanwhile, 80s fans rejoiced when the country's hottest love team Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion said "I Do" at the Manila Cathedral. But they all shed tears when the fairytale romance which began in Dear Heart eventually faded.
Here are 6 love teams - including some of this generation's beloved duos - who made it real:
1. Dawn Zulueta and Richard Gomez
It all started with the 1991 hit movie Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit! Although they didn't end up together, #CharDawn is still one of the most celebrated pairs in the country after reuniting in the Kapamilya teleserye Walang Hanggan back in 2012!
2. Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson
There was no "happily ever after" in the #Kimerald love story which started to blossom at the Pinoy Big Brother house! Kim recently dashed the hopes of fans when she denied rumors of a reunion project!
3. Nadine Lustre and James Reid
Since their first blockbuster movie Diary ng Panget, fans of the two have been screaming to make the kilig real by getting together as a couple. #JaDine made it official last February 11, 2016.
4. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla
Kathryn and Daniel claim to be "exclusively dating"! #KathNiel - which began in the teen series Growing Up - recently sealed it with a *SPOILER ALERT* [kiss] *END OF SPOILER* in their latest blockbuster movie Barcelona: A Love Untold!
5. Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil
#LizQuen - which was born in the movie She's The One - also admitted having an exclusive relationship in a recent interview. Here's hoping that the love of the Dolce Amore stars will be Forevermore!
6. Iya Villania and Drew Arellano
VJ Iya and Drew are living every shipper's dream! After being paired together in the youth-oriented show Click, they had a 10-year relationship before tying the knot in 2014. And now, they have a family of their own with the arrival of Baby Primo!
