Ruffa Gutierrez and Herbert Bautista celebrate Christmas together


Did Ruffa Gutierrez just confirm romance rumors with actor-politician Herbert Bautista?

In a TikTok video, the actress shared moments from the Gutierrez family’s Christmas Eve celebration, showing clips of her family members exchanging gifts. 

In the latter part of the video, Herbert appeared in the frame, spotted talking to Ruffa’s brother Monching Guttierez, and another clip of her urging her rumored boyfriend to look at the camera. 

“Merry Christmas from me and mine to you and yours. ?✨?? #GutzChristmas2021,” Ruffa wrote as caption. 

Some netizens in the comments section couldn’t help but consider that this was Ruffa’s confirmation of her rumored relationship with Herbert. 

Early in December, Ruffa reacted to a news item about her mom’s comment about Herbert Bautista being “maliit pero mabait”.

“Maliit?? Well, I’m 5’10 so more than half of Filipino men are shorter than me. Besides, height doesn’t matter. Or does it?” the former beauty queen tweeted.

Speculations about the two dating surfaced when Herbert’s ex-girlfriend Kris Aquino mentioned about the former having a “beautiful girlfriend”.

Ruffa and Herbert were co-stars in the Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla starrer series The House of Us in 2020.
