MANILA, Philippines – Actress Heart Evangelista teased her boyfriend, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, at a Christmas party, asking him why he came into her life just now.
According to an article published in Yahoo! News on Thursday, a reporter initially asked Evangelista to perform a duet of Freestyle and Pops Fernandez’s hit song “Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang” during a Christmas party thrown by the senator.

The reporter, however, surprisingly passed the microphone to Escudero after Evangelista finished singing her part.
The actress then gamely approached Escudero herself and even went down on her knees, as she asked her boyfriend to sing the song with her.
“Bakit ngayon ka lang dumating ba, ha Chiz?” she asked.
Hoping to get Escudero to join her, Evangelista told him: “Chiz, go! Kung kay Kris Aquino, kakanta ka… Sa akin, hindi ka kakanta?”
Escudero served as a guest co-host of Aquino on her morning talk show "KrisTV," where he first admitted that Evangelista is his girlfriend.
The Senator, however, persistently declined and just let his girlfriend finish the song.
