KAPAMILYA actress-singer Angeline Quinto revealed that boyfriend singer Eric Santos was a bit jealous when he was not chosen as her partner for a new duet in a songwriting contest.
“Sabi po n’ya bakit hindi s’ya?” said Quinto during an appearance in “Tonight with Boy Abunda” over ABS-CBN.
Quinto, 26, will interpret the song “Parang Tayo Pero Hindi” with crooner Michael Pangilinan for the 2016 Himig Handog contest.
She said that she could relate to the song because “parang ganun kami” as she referred to her relationship with her current boyfriend.
Quinto also confessed the reason why she has not said “yes” to a relationship with Santos.
“Medyo kumplikado lang po. Nanunuod po si Mama Bob, siguro baka pag sinagot ko si Eric ang isipin n’ya magpapakasal na po ako agad. Baka hindi yun maintindihan ng mama ko,” she said.
She added: “Sinabi ko naman kay Eric kung gaano ko kamahal yun.”
Quinto said that Santos feels pressure when competing in Himig Handog songwriting contests.
“Naikwento po n’ya sa akin na sobra talagang pressure ‘yung nararamdaman n’ya kapag kasali s’ya sa Himig Handog,” said Quinto, winner of “Star Power: Sharon’s Search for the Next Female Pop Superstar” in 2011.
Asked if she’s happy these days, Quinto said: “Sobrang happy ako now.”
