MANILA – For three years, Paulo Avelino and his girlfriend, model Jodie Tarasek, have managed to keep their relationship away from the public eye.
Except when they are celebrating special occasions, such as Avelino’s birthday.
On Instagram, Tarasek penned as sweet birthday message for her boyfriend, whom she described as “my best friend for life, my pimple popper, my translator and my voice of reason.”
“You have the biggest heart, you are passionate and you are so much more than what the world knows. No amount of words can explain how thankful I am that you forced me to be your girlfriend,” she wrote.
“I know you can, will and continue to achieve great things because you are YOU,” she added.
Avelino, who turned 32 on May 13, has strictly kept private his relationship with Tarasek despite being one of the most visible actors on film and television.
One of the very few times the couple made a public appearance together was at the 2017 Star Magic Ball.
Nonetheless, Avelino has continuously been evasive in interviews whenever his personal life is brought up.
