Fans Ask: Are Diego Loyzaga and Franki Russell Dating?

Diego Loyzaga and Franki Russell are the current subject of rumors after the ex-“Pinoy Big Brother” housemate greeted the actor on his birthday last Friday, May 20, via a carousel of photos of themselves on Instagram.

The post, which was subsequently deleted, included pictures of them being physically close. In one photo, Diego can be seen holding Franki’s face as they looked at each other, while in another, they’re seen holding each other as Franki got a rib tattoo. “Birthday boy,” Franki had originally captioned the post with.

The actress-beauty queen had also greeted Diego on her Instagram stories that day, writing: “Happy birthday [Diego Loyzaga]. You have the biggest heart and everyone around you is so lucky to have someone like you in their life. 27 ain’t ready for you papi.”

It’s unclear whether there really is a budding romance between the two.

Diego last dated Barbie Imperial for a year. In February 2022, the two confirmed their amicable breakup and assured fans that they are still “good friends.”
