Singer-actress Nikki Gil said she's both relieved and a bit worried now that her relationship with Billy Crawford is finally out in the open.
"We don't have to hide anything anymore. But yun nga lang, it opens the door to the public," said Nikki last night, May 27, at the Pure 'N Fresh Top Teen Awards held at the A. Venue on Makati Ave., Makati City.
Billy mentioned in a recent interview, "Oo, open na kami, pero we still want it as private as we can. Basta ang masasabi lang namin, we are happy. We talk, our families talk. Yun ang pinaka-importante kasi, e, para maging totoo ang relasyon, yung pagbibigay ng importance sa pamilya.
Nikki, however, clarified that they were not really avoiding the topic prior to Billy's admission.
"Wala naman talagang nagtatanong exactly... So, parang as much as possible if we could avoid it," smiled Nikki.
Despite of their mutual decision to come clean about their relationship, Nikki remains cautious. She wants to keep her romance with Billy low key and free from unnecessary media attention.
Since they're both part of show business, is that possible?
"Feeling ko nasa tao din naman yun, e. Kung lapitin ka talaga ng intriga, pero we still maintain the privacy of our relationship. Siguro enough na na alam ng mga tao na meron. Huwag nang halukayin pa kung ano ang mga detalye nung relationship."
