Wherever KC Concepcion is, her boyfriend—most likely—is there. He usually arrives unobtrusively, but it’s hard to miss a Piolo Pascual!
At the launch of KC Concepcion as ambassador of Plana Forma, a 55-minute full-body workout, at the 6th floor of Jecoprime Building in Fort Bonifacio Global City, he showed up to support his girlfriend.
"Ganun din naman siya sa akin," he said during his brief chat with the press and media people. "I’m happy I get to be with her sa mga milestones sa buhay niya. And of course, being ambassador of Plana Forma, she’s really passionate about it. And I’m happy because finally ni-launch na nga."
How’s their relationship?
"Okay naman. Wala namang problema so far. We’re happy. We’re both busy. She just got back from London," PJ (his nickname) answered.
And unlike before, the lovely couple have been relishing the fact that the real score is now out in the open.
Piolo affirmed, "We’re just more comfortable being seen in public. Like last week, we went to a play. Nakakatuwa!"
It was only in February this year that the 34-year-old hunk announced that Kristina (how he calls KC) has been his "princess" since October 21, 2010.
He smiled, then exclaimed, "Actually, anniversary namin ngayon [July 21]. Anniversary month."
The small crowd that gathered around him cheered, then prodded him to reveal his plans.
But, "I’d better not say it in public...I just don’t wanna preempt things. Kung meron man, sa akin na lang muna."
WEDDING PLANS? Marriage is presently not part of their agenda.
He said, half-joking, "Maraming nagpapakasal daw ngayon so, sa susunod na lang. Bata pa kami. Wala pa sa isip namin yun."
But when the right time comes, he related, "I like medyo non-traditional wedding. Siguro, hindi man beach, siguro garden."
Another must for him: "I really want it outside of the country. Sana huwag dito."
Are they going to keep it secret from the fans?
"E, kasi para naman sa ’min yun. Hindi naman para sa ibang tao," he quickly replied.
How about the press and media?
In jest, he said, "Punta kayo. Bili kayo ng ticket."
So, when’s the date?
He just shook off his head. "I’m not getting any younger but I’m not old naman. So I need to buy time. Alam niyo naman, Kristina still wants to do a lot of things...One day at a time."
But he assured those who have been supporting their love team that he wants his relationship with KC to last.
Piolo added, "Lahat naman ng bagay kung pinasok natin, gusto ko pangmatagalan.. I’m happy."
And have they talked about kids?
"Siguro magpakasal muna kami," he said with a smile.
IÑIGO’S SHOWBIZ PLANS. The report claiming KC had some bonding moments with his son Iñigo in London was brought up.
Piolo’s candid reaction: "Ang yaman naman ng anak para pumunta ng London. Hindi pa nakakapunta ng Europe yung anak ko.
"Nandito yung anak ko. He was with me. Lahat ng free time ko, kasama yung bata."
Is he going to allow his son to enter showbiz?
"Gusto niya, pero ayoko."
At present, he said Iñigo is in "Grade 8."
Piolo added with a laugh, "Pag Grade 20 na siguro siya, baka pumayag na ako."
