Salonga and Muhlach were onscreen partners for films "Sana Maulit Muli" in 1995 and "Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal" in 1992.

Fans revived clamor for their love team to reunite this year after Muhlach's "Love letter to Lea" published in her 2013 souvenir coffee-table book "Playlist: A Celebration of 35 Years", went viral online.

Muhlach called her "The one that got away."

Muhlach has two kids with Gonzales, Andres and Atasha.

Salonga is married to businessman Robert Chien and they have a daughter, Nicole.
