Zaijian has been making appearances on some of Dian’s TikTok videos.

It was in a Magandang Buhay interview in October 2020, when Zaijian revealed that he’s in a relationship with someone for more than a year already. 

He also said that his non-showbiz girlfriend has become one of his biggest inspirations.

“Sobra pong (inspirasyon). Nakakatulong po siya sa akin. Parang mas inspired ako sa pang-araw-araw. Gumgising ako tapos alam ko na parang may nagmamahal sa akin, tapos may naghihintay sa akin,” he said. 

Zaijian last starred in the coming-of-age comedy film Boyette (Not A Girl, Yet) last year.
