Celebrity couple Rico Blanco and Maris Racal have kept the details of their relationship lowkey for the most part, which makes it even sweeter when they reveal more about their love story!
In a report by PUSH on February 3, Rico candidly opened up about what made him fall in love with Maris and how their friendship transitioned into romance.
The “The Goodbye Girl” actor spoke of when he started developing feelings for the actress: “Parang little by little lang eh. Definitely not the first time I met her. Definitely not when we were working on the song and recording. I take pride kasi in my professionalism in the studio and no matter if I think the person that I’m working with is attractive or not, or even on the set, when I’m doing acting, I take pride in my professionalism. So wala eh, and then I think it was sometime after we were done working on the song.”
“I think sa mga talks namin siguro. Nagkakamustahan kami. DM yata. Parang ganun,” he added.
When asked to describe Maris as a girlfriend, Rico specified the general happy and positive “vibe” Maris has as a person. He pointed out that Maris’ sunshine personality “brings out the best” and the “childlike fun” in him.
“Siguro when I mention positive traits of Maris as a girlfriend, this is by no means I’m putting down ‘yung mga exes ko or other girlfriends out there. Hindi naman, ang bawat tao naman ay may magaganda and unique traits and good traits about them,” he clarified.
“Ang gusto ko kay Maris is she doesn’t even realize it but nakaka-happy eh 'yung vibe niya. It’s something that is, I think normal to them na magkakapatid, ‘cause I hung out with the sisters also and the family and even with Maris’ mom and that’s the vibe there eh, parang barkada. It’s like the same vibe when you’re hanging out with your friends. And it’s really like that kahit kaming dalawa lang,” he said.
“Of course lahat naman nang tao there are days when we’re down ‘di ba? And it happens to her, happens to me too. But in general, ang positive nung vibe. It brings out the best in me. ‘Yung positive side ko nalalabas din kasi nakakalimutan ko rin na I’m playful pala. There’s a bit of childlike fun in every person and she brings that out.”
As their relationship continues to progress, they mutually hope to keep making more memories and actualize their plans together.
“Years from now, I hope na the relationship is deeper and richer with so much more memories, music, active projects, and stories, ‘di ba? And it seems like we’re gonna take everyone on this journey with us kasi parang ganun na eh,” said Rico.
Referring to their following in showbiz, he continued, “You’re part of this journey and of course there are things that are private lang and sa amin lang but I’m hoping lang na it’s going to be more fun pa and more stories in the future.”
Rico and Maris are set to star in “The Bitter Hopia” episode of “The Goodbye Girl” produced by Dreamscape Entertainment and Clever Minds Inc. Catch the premiere of “The Goodbye Girl” on February 14 on iWantTFC!
