Marnigo fans were thrilled when Iñigo Pascual said “I love you” to onscreen partner and rumored girlfriend Maris Racal in the middle of their duet.
Iñigo was one of the special guests of Maris at the grand launch of her debut album Stellar held last Saturday, July 7, at the Skydome, SM North Edsa, in Quezon City.
As part of his surprise, Iñigo called on fellow music artist John Roa to play the guitar as he and Maris performed “Best Part” by Daniel Ceasar.
While Maris was singing the line “If you love me won't you say something,” Iñigo leaned towards Maris, looked into her eyes, and said, “I love you.”
The 20-year-old singer looked surprised as Iñigo hugged her.
Maris then pointed to the direction where her parents were seated. Iñigo gave a “peace” sign while laughing at what he did.
Fans started screaming upon witnessing the kilig moment.
This was not the first time Iñigo confessed his love for Maris.
In fact, the two Kapamilya stars exchanged “I love you”s at a recent fan meet.
However, until now, Iñigo and Maris have neither confirmed nor denied their relationship.
“DI TAYO MALABO.” Prior to this, Maris and Iñigo performed “Tayo Na, Di Tayo.”
The song, written by Maris, was about a “malabo” or undefined relationship.
“Yung hindi mo alam kung ano kayo,” she explained.
But she was quick to clarify to Iñigo, “Uy, di ko sinasabing malabo tayo, ha.”
After their performance, Iñigo told Maris, “Mundo man ay malabo, isa lang ang masasabi ko, ang totoo, whenever I'm with everything is okay.”
Aside from Iñigo, Maris also performed a duet with her new best friend Sue Ramirez.
Bela Padilla, Ria Atayde, Diego Lozaga and his mom Teresa Loyzaga were spotted watching the grand album launch/fan concert.
According to Maris, this event is one of the most important milestones in her showbiz career.
The Pinoy Big Brother alumna told her fans, “Sobrang tagal natin itong hinintay, di ba? Four years.
“Four years kong hinintay ang opportunity para hindi lang marinig ang boses ko kung di pati nilalaman ng puso ko.”
With regard to her debut album, Maris said, “Hindi ako makapaniwala. Lahat ng sinulat ko na bahagi ng album ko na Stellar, maririnig niyo na po.”
