MANILA – Coleen Garcia admitted she has yet to feel comfortable every time Billy Crawford shows his affection to her on the ABS-CBN noontime program “It’s Showtime,” which both of them co-host.

Garcia said she is not yet used to people paying too much attention to her following Crawford’s confession that he is wooing her.

“I get shy because I am a very shy person, people know that,” she said in an interview with

Last Valentine’s Day, Crawford serenaded Garcia saying, “special ito, kaya nga nanliligaw ako eh.”

While Crawford is determined to win her heart, Garcia said she just wants to take things slowly.

“I’m just giving everything time. I’m just taking everything slowly because there's really no need to rush. There’s no need to jump into anything [immediately],” she said.

Following Crawford’s admission on national TV, Garcia has been receiving some negative comments from those who followed the singer’s former relationship with Nikki Gil.

Despite this, Garcia said she will continue to have a positive outlook, only valuing the people who have her back.

“Thank you so much for the support. Thank you for the never-ending love that you guys give me and I love you all so much also,” she said.

Garcia was once tagged as the reason behind the breakup of Crawford and Gil. Crawford, however, has repeatedly said that Garcia was not the reason why he and Gil parted ways.
