MANILA, Philippines - KC Concepcion has decided to put off being in a serious relationship with her French suitor, filmmaker Pierre Emmanuel Plassart.
At the sidelines of the wedding of singer Paolo Valenciano and his long-time girlfriend on Thursday, Concepcion admitted that she feels "pressured" from her mom's apparent approval of the actress-host's blooming relationship with Plassart.
"I've decided na rin na na ayoko munang i-push through, kasi hindi pa ako ganoon ka-ready. Pero ang sweet niya, ang bait niya, sobrang lambing, na sa kanya naman 'yung mga hinihingi ko, pero it's just that ayoko muna maging serious talaga," she said.
Having reportedly met at an international film festival in 2012, Plassart's gestures in courting Concepcion have been publicized in recent months.
Notably, the Kapamilya actress admitted that the French photographer had "purchased" a star in her name in September.
On Thursday, Concepcion as well as her mother, Sharon Cuneta, said Plassart spent Christmas in the Philippines with their family.
When asked on the current state of her relationship with Plassart, Concepcion said, "I'm very open to getting to know people. Ayoko pa pong maging seryoso talaga, at very honest po ako sa kahit na sinong ma-date ko o makilala ko, that I don't want to be so serious yet. Totoo po 'yon."
"Kung meant naman po, meant. Kahit ano naman pong pagpa-plano natin, at the end of it, pag maramdaman mo na... Siguro hindi ko pa nararamdaman," she said.
