A day later, Markus had an Instagram live stream with Janella and family members.
At one point, there was a bug that caused some people to panic, including Janella. However, one statement of hers caught the attention of viewers.
"I almost jumped and that's not good. I'm not allowed to jump," the Kapamilya actress said after her panic from the bug.
Some netizens from Twitter captured the moment and began to ask why she said she was not allowed to jump, with several speculating that she is pregnant.

Hala siszt!!? Janella literally said after seeing a bug: “I almost jumped! And I can’t do that. I’m not allowed to do that.” Not the exact words though. But she really is preggy?!?!
However, some netizens came to Janella's defense, saying it's her life and she can dow whatever she wants.
Some of you are saying that Janella Salvador is pregnant? And some of you are cancelling her bcoz' "she's pregnant at a young age"? Seriously? No one confirms it. And what if Janella is pregnant??? Can y'all stop that fvcing cancel culture? Hello!! It's her fvcking life!!— Trisha Caballero (@ChefTrishaC) September 12, 2020
Girl, if Janella is really pregnant, it's not your problem anymore. Nasa legal age naman na sila and they are financially stable naman para magprovide sa baby. Now, just sit and let other people enjoy their life. Their life, their choice.They are not existing just to please you.— 🍂 (@xxhopefull_) September 12, 2020

Despite the numerous speculations, Janella and Markus have yet to address the issue.
Until last Saturday, the Kapamilya stars have been silent in confirming something between them.
They first worked together on an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) last February 2019 wherein the actress played singer-songwriter Moira Dela Torre and Markus playing an ex-boyfriend.
After MMK, rumors of their dating status spread when fans spotted them together and shared photos of them eating together with family members.
Last August 2019, for the press conference of the film Dead Kids, it was reported that Markus had confirmed that he had already met Janella's parents.
By October 2019, in an episode of Tonight With Boy Abunda, Markus was directly asked whether he was dating Janella or not.
“We don’t hide from anyone but right now is not just the right time for everything," he answered.
