MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Dating rumours have yet again sparked as Atom Araullo posted on Instagram, greeting Zen Hernandez a happy birthday on October 4. Fans speculate that the two have gone “Instagram official.”
Award-winning broadcast journalist Atom Araullo, one of the country’s famous names in news broadcasting, posted a birthday greeting on Instagram with rumoured girlfriend Zen Hernandez, a fellow news broadcaster.
Atom posted a photo of the two of them with a brief caption, “Happy 28th birthday, po.”
However, he later edited the post, adding “Edit: hindi po talaga siya 28.”

Friends of Zen, such as Pinky Webb, Karen Davila, Pia Arcangel, Steve Dailisan and Gretchen Fullido, also commented on the post, greeting her a happy birthday.
The two were first linked together back in 2021 when fellow news anchor Pinky Webb posted a photo with Atom and Zen, saying she met the two unexpectedly in an undisclosed resort.
“It was such a nice surprise!! Syempre, kinilig ako. Kasi, alam mo na… it’s always so nice to see former officemates, ‘di ba? Family is love. Kayo talaga…” Pinky wrote.
While the rumoured couple neither confirmed nor denied their relationship, netizens flocked to the comment section and expressed various reactions.
Most fans were disappointed since the “line” had stopped, referring to the queue of people vying for Atom’s heart.
“Tapos na po ang pila, opo,” @miatms_ said. (The line has ended, yes.)
Others also jokingly said that the “announcement of winners” of presumably Atom’s heart was on October 4.
“Today pala ang announcement ng winner,” @marfelizmenio commented. (Apparently, the announcement of the winner was today.)
Happy birthday, Zen! – WhatALife!
