    the beginning of their love story,“ said Rishi Jaitly, Twitter’s vice president, Asia Pacific & Middle East.

    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.

    Due to the strong chemistry between the two main characters, their budding romance caught the attention of the audience and the first ever ‘kalyeserye’ began.

    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.”
