Now that the country’s own Pia Wurtzbach is moving on from Miss Universe queen to New York model, her boyfriend Swiss-Filipino racer Marlon Stockinger is bracing himself for the worst.
But now at a social media age, maintaining a long distance relationship because of work would not prove to be difficult anymore, Marlon said on the red carpet of the Miss Universe afterparty in Okada Manila Monday night.
“I think it works, because we’re both very career driven, because of that we’re able to understand each other’s jobs. So yeah, we get along in that sense,” Marlon said.
“We’re very supportive of one another. So in the end, it really works out,” he added.
Marlon expressed confidence their relationship would work out now that Pia would spend more time in New York for her contract with the prestigious talent management company International Management Group (IMG).
Pia announced the good news during the coronation day of the 65th Miss Universe held here in the Philippines on Monday.
“I think, whether she is Miss Universe or not, Pia will still continue to be busy. About her passing on the crown, all I can say is, I’m very proud. I think we can be very proud of her reign as well,” Marlon said.
“She has a very bright future after this. She’s been absorbed by IMG, and I think she has a lot of work to do yet,” he added.
