Matteo Guidicelli, Jessy Mendiola in an 'unlabeled' relationship

Matteo Guidicelli and Jessy Mendiola say their relationship is “unlabeled.” The “Paraiso” lead stars consider each other very special but said they’re taking things slow.

The loveteam already admitted their love for each other during an interview with “Showbiz Inside Report” aired on February 23.

Earlier last month, a stolen shot of Jessy hugging Matteo at the set circulated online. The controversial photo went viral on social networking sites.

In an interview with “The Buzz” on Easter Sunday, March 31, Matteo and Jessy said they believe that their “unlabeled” relationship will grow stronger even beyond their Precious Hearts Romance series, which is on its finale week on ABS-CBN.

Asked about his plans for Jessy, Matteo said he is taking everything slow and doesn’t want to put a tag to whatever romantic that’s going on between them.

“Jessy and I are in a relationship. I don’t want to put any label. We’re not together, we’re not boyfriend-girlfriend or anything, but from my point of view and in my heart, Jessy is very special to me,” Matteo told the show’s host, Boy Abunda.

The hunk actor revealed that he has yet to meet Jessy’s parents.

For her part, Jessy admitted that Matteo makes her happy. The Kapamilya actress expressed willingness to wait for her leading man to court her formally.

“Hinihintay ko lang siyang manligaw talaga...but true love is worth waiting for,” Jessy gladly said.

In previous interviews, Matteo insisted that they’re not officially an item yet.
