Everyone seems to be head-over-heels with Joshua Garcia. The 24-year-old simply oozes charm, and even the Nicki Minaj has gone so far as to dropping a comment on his TikTok post. (To which everyone responded: Get in line, Nicki!). But with countless people expressing their interest in the Darna actor (including Bella Poarch), who has really caught his eye?
Joshua Garcia fuels dating rumors

The answer might lie on his Instagram film dump account.
Last September 6, Garcia posted a reel of beauty vlogger Bella Racelis, 22. The post included a video of Racelis in what looks like a garden resort where she walks while looking back and laughing at Garcia. It then shifted to snaps of the vlogger taken with a film camera. The post wasn’t captioned, but the Internet felt like they got everything they needed to know.
The whole thing felt intimate. This was, after all, the first time in a long time that Garcia made a post in that nature and in an account where he documents personal moments in his life.
So are they dating?

Back in August, eagle-eyed fans observed Garcia and Racelis interacting on Instagram, sparking the dating rumors. The pair communicated in fish and sparkle emojis under Racelis’ stunning photo of her OOTD for Vogue Philippines’ welcome party.
But these kinds of interactions have been going on for months now. Garcia has left comments on the beauty guru’s posts including one of her golfing and another of her dog, Theo. They have also been pictured together with a group of friends at different events. And as if that isn’t enough, fans also discovered that Garcia might have made Racelis a playlist on Spotify.
@02zip if this is real, i’m sooo happy for them! 💗 #joshuagarcia #thatsbella #fyp ♬ lowkey – NIKI
All these have the Internet convinced Garcia’s post was a confirmation of sorts.
Garcia’s last known relationship is with actress Julia Barretto. They split in 2019 after dating for two years.
What are fans saying?
The Internet is divided. While neither Garcia nor Racelis commented on what on earth is going on, fans are tossing their two cents anyway.
“This Bella Racelis and Joshua Garcia is not bagay. For me, they just give off that ‘siblings vibe’ No kilig factor, nothing special,” commented one netizen.
Many also said that the vlogger seems to be too “simple” for the Darna leading man. But the majority of folks online went to the pair’s defense.
Can you stop throwing hate to Bella Racelis just because there are rumors that she is dating Joshua Garcia? 😳

Who is Bella Racelis?

Many will know Racelis as ThatsBella on YouTube. She is a lifestyle content creator with a passion for travel and fashion. Hardcore fans of Garcia might be quick to dismiss the vlogger as your run-of-the-mill YouTube content creator but her 1.21 million YouTube subscribers would beg to differ.
What’s Joshua Garcia up to?
JOSHUA GARCIA AS AN ACTION STAR! Who would have thought??? ✨

thirst traps adorable videos.
