KC Concepcion has been dropping hints on social media about dating an unnamed someone since July, 2018.
But on August 15, 2018 KC Concepcion posted an Instagram Story of her and Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart, having fun with their smartphone while they were apparently holding hands.
Then on Saturday, August 18, KC Concepcion posted a beautiful photo of her and Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart at Getty Villa in California. KC captioned it with three-words that spoke volumes: “Warm, genuine, timeless.”
Warm, genuine, timeless.
The KC Concepcion and Pierre-Emmanuel photo had more than 130,000 likes since it was posted. And the comments (more than 3500 as of this writing) keep pouring in, from celebrities to thousands of KC Concepcion’s fans.
Her friend Ruffa Gutierrez wrote on the comments section, “No wonder you’re not replying. You’re busyyyyy…stay happy xx”. KC Concepcion replied, “Ahahahha! Ate Ruff! Minsan lang to!” (This only happens once.)
Angeli Pangilinan Valenciano, the wife of Gary Valenciano, also greeted the couple. Host and eventologist Tim Yap and Actress-singer Lea Salonga reacted to the IG photo of KC Concepcion and Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart as well.
Most of the commenters showed approval for KC Concepcion and Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart but there are a few bashers, which is usual in any IG post.
However, KC Concepcion handled the negative comments with grace. Take for example her reply to a commenter who said, “It’s your choice!!! Aly is more and more than handsome!!! Sorry hope Aly will find the right and best girl he deserves.”
KC replied: “I hope so too! Only want the best for him!”
KC Concepcion broke up with popular American-Filipino footballer Alexander “Aly” Borromeo around March, 2018. Their relationship lasted for about 2 years.
New Begginings with an Old Flame
In an ABS-CBN interview last July, KC Concepcion admitted that she is dating a non-showbiz, foreign guy and that she’s inspired. She also said, “…mahal siya ng pamilya ko and I think nagkakaintindihan kami ng pamilya nya.” (my family loves him and I think his family and I, understand each other)
KC Concepcion and Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart met in October 2011, during ex-President Bill Clinton’s Gala for the Clinton foundation in Los Angeles, California.
Megastar Sharon Cuneta and the mother of Pierre-Emmanuel was at the party, too.
Since then, Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart have been coming to the Philippines and following KC Concepcion in her travels abroad. He also spent a lot of time with the Cuneta clan here and abroad.
KC Concepcion and Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart had a brief relationship, which fans speculated started in August 2012 but which cooled off in February 2013.
KC Concepcion said back then that she never turned down Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart, she just needed space and wasn’t ready for a serious relationship which Plassart wanted.
In an interview with ABS-CBN in February 2013, KC Concepcion said:
True love waits. We’ll see, kung talagang true ‘yung love niya at talagang makarating ako sa level na ready na ako at nandiyan pa rin siya. Mabait naman siyang tao at napakadisente ng pamilya niya. Mahal na mahal ko ang pamilya niya at mahal rin nila ako. We’ll see. For now, maganda ang friendship namin.
True love waits. We’ll see, if his love is really true and if i really reach that level that I’m ready and he’s still there. He is a kind person and his family is very decent. I love his family so much and they also love me. We’ll see. For now, our friendship is good.
It’s been more than 5 years since KC Concepcion said those words.
It seems like KC Concepcion is now at that level when she’s ready for a serious relationship. And Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart is “still there” for her. He waited. True love.
