The rumors about Janella’s pregnancy came after the actress was claimed to have been rejected by a TV show on the Kapatid network.
Netizens said that the reason for her rejection being her attitude problem was only a cover-up to her pregnancy.

The rumors about the relationship of Janella and Markus started around March 2019 when netizens claimed the two were seen hanging out together. The people also pointed out similar details when they had a Japan trip around May.
Although they did not post a photo together, fans were quick to notice details confirming that they were indeed on the trip together.
It can be remembered that Markus already hinted about his relationship with Janella during his press announcement on Netflix with his film ‘Ang Babaeng Allergic sa WiFi’ in 2018.
“For me of course iba talaga ‘yung personal life sa career and parang ayaw kong ipaghalo kasi gusto ko lang i-protect kung whatever we have,” he said.
“Nag-a-agree kami na it is better na whatever we have, it is just for us, kasi it is harder when there are so many people involve,” he added.
In the same interview, he also revealed that he first met each Janella on the set of Maalaala Mo Kaya when they starred in an episode together and they kept in touch with each other ever since then.
