    The AlDub love team was accidentally discovered at the Juan for All, All for Juan segment of the noon time television show Eat Bulaga where Maine portrayed the character of a housemaid and Alden as himself.

    Well-known local personalities and even foreign celebrities congratulated the love team through their Tweets, including a Tweet from US musician Bryan_White, who sang AlDub’s theme song “God
    Gave Me You.”
