MANILA -- For actress-singer Maris Racal, it helps to have a musically inclined partner.
"I guess it plays a huge part. I can say because Rico is very supportive," Racal said on Wish 107.5 Connect on Monday night, referring to her boyfriend, musician Rico Blanco.
"Whenever I have problems or whenever I have like confidence issues or whenever I feel insecure, he really tries his best to help me get through it."
Racal, a former housemate on "Pinoy Big Brother," is set to release her new single "Ate Sandali," on June 23 at 6 p.m. on her YouTube channel.
Racal, 23, confirmed being in a relationship with Blanco, 48, in May, when asked during a virtual media conference about their status.
They were first romantically linked in March, when Racal greeted Blanco on his birthday by posting a video of them singing together.
The two first worked together in 2019, when they collaborated on Racal’s pop track “Abot Langit.”
