The revelation came after the two were pressed by their fellow It's Showtime hosts if they already turned into real life partners.

"Yeah, she already said yes," Crawford told co-host Vhong Navarro in Filipino.

Many were no longer surprised with the announcement as their closeness has become very obvious since last year.

In October, an intensionally blurred photo showed them being sweet to each other in what appeared to be a bar in Bacolod, had gone viral.

Two months later, Billy and Coleen spent a Christmas vacation together in the United States. They watched a basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks at Barclays Arena in New York during the holidays.

In January this year, the 32-year-old singer-host admitted that he was courting Coleen, 21, and confirmed their December date in the US, although he clarified that she wasn't his girlfriend yet.

Last March, many thought they were already an item after a photo showing them having another sweet moment while eating at a restaurant surfaced online.

On July 24, Billy announced that they are officially on.

BiCol (Billy and Coleen) fans quickly turned to Twitter to give the new couple well wishes.
