According to an article titled “President in love” written by Philippine Daily Inquirer “Big Buzz” columnist Daxim Lucas, PNoy has been dating Ledesma, a cum laude graduate of the Ateneo de Davao University law school.

The 29-year-old lawyer was once a participant in ANC’s debate competition “Square Off.” She works under interior secretary Mar Roxas, the president’s running mate in the 2010 national elections who’s currently busy ensuring the safety of alleged “pork barrel scam” artist Janet Napoles.

A report on ABS-CBN News said two of President Aquino’s sisters—Ballsy Aquino-Cruz and Pinky Aquino-Abellada—hinted in an interview on “Tapatan ni Tunying” in August that he seems “inspired” by a lawyer although no name was revealed.

Before rumors about Kim Ledesma and Noynoy Aquino came out, the president was romantically linked to beauty queen turned actress Bianca Manalo.

In the past, the 53-year-old bachelor was also linked to fashion stylist Liz Uy, stockbroker Len Lopez, Korean language teacher Bunny Calica, and television host Grace Lee after a two-year relationship with Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad.
