17 Years Apart, Are Actors Intan Ladyana & Harris Alif Dating?
Singer and actor Harris Alif may have just confirmed his relationship with actress Intan Ladyana.
Harris shared a picture of himself and Ladyana dressed in matching Raya outfits on his personal Instagram profile. Coincidence? Maybe not! He shared the image alongside the caption,
Second raya wit [love]”
Fans have taken to the comment section to congratulate the maybe-couple while expressing their surprise. The mixed response is mainly due to the fact that the couple would be 17 years apart, with Harris Alif turning 21 and Intan Ladyana celebrating her 38th birthday this year.
Turns out, the two really are dating! Speaking to Astro Gempak, Alif confirms that the two met (as friends) 9 years ago but only got close a few months ago. He admits to falling for her good heart and says that Ladyana is a “beautiful, smart and confident woman”. He says of their start,
“To be honest, I’ve known her for a long time. More than 9 years. But at the time, there were no feelings between us because we were just friends. When we met at events, we’d greet each other. We got closer a few months ago and have been in contact since. That was the start of our relationship.”
Speculation that the two were together came about as early as the start of May, after Alif posted an image of the two in the car alongside the caption,
Since then, fans have been debating if Alif and Ladyana are romantically involved or somehow related. The ‘Pencinta’ singer had been responding to comments on the earlier picture, despite not saying much.
Alif responded to Likely about the situation saying,
Obviously Intan is not my sister.”
Intan Ladyana, whose real name is Intan Nurladyana Binti Mohamat Yahaya, has not been romantically linked with anyone since her relationship with fellow actor Kamal Adli ended over six years ago. In an interview with Gempak mid last year, the actress explained her decision to keep her private life, well, private.
“Whether or not I have a partner, let time tell. When the time comes, I will share the news about it. From the very beginning, I’ve not been a fan of sharing my private life. To me, my private life is for me alone.”
We send both actors our congrats, loads of good vibes and love this festive season!
