When asked for his reaction to the fact that Sarah Geronimo called him "babe" recently, Gerald Anderson said: "Napanood n'yo naman na nagulat rin ako! [laughs] Sa totoo lang, hindi ko po alam kung bakit nangyari yun. But siyempre, nakita n'yo na nagulat ako. Pero at the same time, kinilig rin ako. Nanghina ang tuhod ko nun. Siyempre, isang Sarah Geronimo at biglang tinawag kang 'babe,' Wow!"

Gerald Anderson revealed that his knees felt weak when he heard Sarah Geronimo call him "babe" recently.

The two stars went on a yacht date for the pilot episode of Sarah G Live that aired last Sunday, February 26.

During their videoke session, Sarah was leafing through a songbook when she suddenly blurted out, "Hanap lang ako, babe."

Members of the press had the chance to interview Gerald regarding this incident during the farewell presscon of Budoy held earlier today, February 28, at the 9501 restaurant located at the ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City.

Gerald said with a laugh, "Napanood n'yo naman na nagulat rin ako!

"Sa totoo lang, hindi ko po alam kung bakit nangyari yun. But siyempre, nakita n'yo na nagulat ako.

"Pero at the same time, kinilig rin ako. Nanghina ang tuhod ko nun.

"Siyempre, isang Sarah Geronimo at biglang tinawag kang 'babe,' Wow!"

NOT IN A RELATIONSHIP. Despite their many sweet moments caught on camera—such as holding hands and clips showing Sarah feeding Gerald—the actor says that he is not in a relationship with the Popstar Princess.

Gerald said with a smile, "As much as gusto kong sabihin na kami [ni Sarah], we're friends and hindi po ako nagsisinungaling sa inyo.

"She does inspire me and I'm just really happy na nakilala ko siya in a different level.

"But hindi po kami, hindi kami.

"Masaya ako kung anong status namin ngayon."

However, their body language seems to say otherwise.
