After months of speculation about the relationship between Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and businessman Jeremy Jauncey, the two finally confirmed that they are dating.
The couple announced their status with a cover on Tatler Philippines‘ June issue. The cover was shot by Nigel Barker, known for being one of the judges on America’s Next Top Model.

In the interview, Wurtzbach said, “There was definitely an immediate spark. We couldn’t stop talking. I found him to be such a warm person and I like that he was always smiling.”
However, it took time for them to date exclusively because Wurtzbach just came out of a relationship. According to Jauncey, he “happily accepted” to show her he was serious and that he is a gentleman.
Previously, the Miss Universe titleholder spoke out about a relationship she was in, without naming Jauncey. She told Mega magazine for its March issue, “I can be my full self. I can be my full Pia, 100% empowered Pia, fight mode all the time; I can be the alpha that I am, all the time. I don’t have to filter myself for anyone anymore.”
Rumors of their romance began last January 2020 when the two seemingly traveled to Bawah Reserve, Indonesia together. In the following month, they shared the same photo of a brunch meal at Dumbo House in Brooklyn, New York City on their individual Instagram accounts.
The two gave hints on their relationship through their Instagram posts for a while now. Recently, Pia revealed that Jeremy had sent her a sweet surprise amid the quarantine: a bouquet of pink roses. “Thank you for the sweet surprise :)” she wrote, tagging Jeremy and adding a heart emoji. Just last month, Jauncey’s Instagram story takeover of a fitness clothing brand’s account showed that his fridge was adorned with photographs of him and Pia.
