Iñigo Pascual on rumored couple Maris Racal and Rico Blanco: ‘Let’s be happy for them’


Iñigo Pascual has this to say about former loveteam partner Maris Racal’s rumored relationship with Rico Blanco. 

While Maris and Rico have yet to confirm or deny the dating speculations, Iñigo said he is happy for the rumored couple, knowing how the young actress is an avid fan of the OPM icon.  

“Wala pa naman akong masasabi pa, wala pa namang nagko-confirm or anything. For me, kung sila, masaya ako kasi siyempre alam ko kung gaano ka-idolo ni Maris ‘yun,” said Iñigo in a recent interview with host Bianca Gonzalez and MJ Felipe on the digital show Pop Cinema.

He added, “Kung ano man ‘yung balita, siguro we should all just be happy for them if they are together, kasi love is love, and it’s a beautiful thing. And there’s so many people na in love na ganun din ‘yung sitwasyon so if ever man, let’s be happy for them, wishing them all the best. 

Iñigo also recalled how he used to sing some of Rico’s songs when he and Maris were still an onscreen pair, dubbed by fans then as MarNigo, and how he congratulated Maris when she did a music collaboration with Rico. 

“Noong loveteam kami ni Maris talagang as in pinapakanta sa akin ‘yung mga kanta ni Rico. So, with them being friends, and the fact na nagka-collab sila dati, sobrang supportive ako doon. Kino-congratulate ko siya dahil alam kong sobang idol niya ‘yun,” shared Iñigo.  

Maris and Rico sparked relationship rumors after the 23-year-old singer-actress posted a video of them singing together to greet him on his 48th birthday, bringing kilig to fellow celebrities and netizens.
