  • Clint Bondad (2012-2019) – Catriona met Filipino actor Clint Bondad during the ad shoot for Smart Communications in 2012. They began dating on June 12, of the same year after falling for each other very quickly. Their courtship lasted for 6 years, and as explained by Catriona, they grew up together since they were both 18 at the start of their relationship. Clint earned a lot of praise for being a loving and supporting boyfriend as could be seen from his Instagram posts. Yet in February 2019, the beauty pageant winner appeared on Filipino talk show Tonight with Boy Abunda and confirmed that the couple had parted ways. It came as sad news to the fans who learned that the couple was having troubles even before the competition had begun. Although they were drifting apart, Clint was by his lady’s side when she won the crown in December 2018. Later, Bondad confirmed that he was the one to push for a break up after her win as their relationship had become counterproductive.
