Rico Blanco has never been one to talk about his private life. Well, not until Maris Racal came into his life and they started dating.
When asked how and why he has become more open about it, the musician cited their being in the same entertainment industry.
“I feel kasi also we’re working in this space na she’s doing music, I’m doing music. She’s acting, she’s serious about her craft. So baka doon ako nakahanap ng area na siguro comfortable ako pag-usapan,” he shared in a report by Push.
The former Rivermaya frontman added that he doesn’t mind discussing this part of their relationship, because it’s something they’re both inspired by.
“It’s not really a private thing, it’s about something that we’re both passionate about and so maybe ‘yun yung window or ‘yun yung doorway para mapag-usapan, ‘yun yung something that might be considered private,” he said.
The “Pinoy Ako” singer continued, “I’d like to think that we still keep a lot of things private but we’re also excited to share when it’s about music or it’s about our art. So it’s not really difficult.”
“I’m as surprised as you guys are,” he quipped.
Rico and Maris collaborated several times in the past before going public with their relationship earlier this year.
