SAM Milby celebrated his 36th birthday last Saturday and finally admitted that he and former Miss Universe Catriona Gray are now going steady. He posted a photo of him kissing Catriona on the forehead in his Instagram account and wrote: “Worth every second of the wait. Most special birthday yet.” 

The rumor mill started buzzing that they are an item when Sam was seen as a special guest in Catriona’s birthday last January 7. But they insisted they are just good friends since they belong to the same talent management team, Cornerstone Entertainment, and they also attend the same Christian church. 

As expected, tongues have now started wagging after the cat is out of the bag and some bashers say Catriona should have been more choosy as she’s an ex-Miss Universe no less. A fan pointed out that Sam is 10 years older than her as he’s 36 and she’s only 26 years old.  

Another fan opines that Sam’s career is on the wane after he played contravida to Jericho Rosales in “Halik” and to Coco Martin in “3pol Trobol”, an entry in the last Metro Manila Filmfest. But someone else points out that “Hindi natuturuan ang puso. E, kung na in love ba talaga si Catriona kay Sam, ano magagawa nyo? Let’s give them a chance.”

Catriona’s last boyfriend was Clint Bondad who is now acting with the Kapuso Network. Sam, in turn, was linked before to Anne Curtis and to model Mari Jasmine who has later admitted that she is bisexual and was also linked to Samantha Lee, director of lesbian themed independent films “Baka Bukas” and “Billie & Emma”.
