With his good looks plus bad-boy vibe, Sebastian “Baste” Duterte, the 28-year-old son of presumptive president Rodrigo Duterte, has effortlessly become a social-media heartthrob.
However, in a recent Facebook live video shot by his friend, Baste broke the hearts of many ladies after confirming he is no longer available.
“Oo, may GF na 'ko,” he said without identifying his ladylove.
According to him, they have different moms, but he has been living with the mom of his second child for three years now.
But if you are still curious about his type of girl, Baste revealed it via Facebook.
On May 21, Baste posted photos of Rita—aka the Badjao girl, sea gypies in Southern Philippines—who just recently became an Internet sensation.
His caption read: “Basig curious lang mo unsay tipo nako nga itsura sa babae. Nara o. Pildiha ni #badjao #lumad”
(“Baka tinatanong niyo kung anong tipo kong itsura ng isang babae? 'Yan siya, o. Talunin mo #badjao #lumad”)
Photographer Topher Quinto Burgos was the one who took the photos while Rita, while carrying her younger brother, was asking for alms at the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon.
Back to Baste, whenever he has the time, he personally replies to fans who leave comments under his public posts on Facebook.
With regard to the said post, he told one of his followers that he appreciates “true Filipina beauty,” thus, he’s more attracted to morena than mestiza.
“Okay ra man ug natural nga puti gyud ka. Lahi man tung gusto muputi. Pero mas ganahan ko ug morena”
("Okay lang naman na natural ang pagkaputi ng isang babae. Iba yung gustong pumuti. Pero, mas gusto ko ng morena.")
