Maine Mendoza a.k.a. Yaya Dub recently said in an interview that Alden Richards should ask permission from her parents first if he wants to court her. Read on for more details.

AlDub Nation rejoice! In her recent interview with veteran entertainment columnist Ricky Lo, Maine Mendoza said that her leading man, Alden Richards, has a strong chance to be her boyfriend in real life. However, the 20-year-old “Kalyeserye” star said that Richards will need to ask her parents first if he plans to court her.

Lo asked Mendoza if she has a boyfriend at the moment. She said that she has no boyfriend right now, but she had when she was still studying high school in St. Paul’s Bulacan. When The Philippine Star interviewed Mendoza in July, she said that her relationship with her ex-boyfriend lasted for five years. When asked about her feelings during her second date with Richards, Mendoza said that she was happy yet nervous at the same time.

During the exclusive interview, which was held at a mansion in New Manila, Quezon City on September 26, Mendoza disclosed that Richards’ assets are his eyes, dimple, and perfect gentleman attitude. The love team can now be seen on McDonald’s and Talk N’ Text commercials.

According to Rappler, Mendoza said that she does not feel that she’s famous despite the Kalyeserye’s success. The Dubsmash Queen also said that she initially wanted to become a flight attendant but admitted that her secret dream was to be an actress. She also said that her life changed when her show became a hit.

It will be recalled that AlDub’s first date got 12.5 million tweets, while their second date got over 25 million tweets. The latter was even noticed by Rishi Jaitly, Twitter Asia Pacific and Middle East Vice President, who said that AlDub is a “global phenomenon.”
