MANILA - Teen actor Iñigo Pascual, the son of Kapamilya star Piolo Pascual, has admitted to dating Filipino-British Kelley Day, one of the members of the "It's Showtime" girl group GirlTrends.
"She's beautiful, everyone can see that," Iñigo, 18, told ABS-CBN News' Gretchen Fullido when asked if they are already a couple. "For now, we're just good friends. We don't want to rush things. We're just getting to know each other."
Pascual met Day, also 18, in an acting workshop more than three months ago. The young actor said he considers Day to be his "closest friend," adding: "We have the same interest and everything."
"I consider her to be one of my most trusted friends," Iñigo continued. "I find her to be really beautiful and really charming so we'll see where this goes. ...I'm happy with what we have right now."
As a newcomer to local showbiz, Day said Iñigo inspires her. "He's done a really good job in making his own name considering his father," she said. "I'm super proud of him. I kind of just started as well and he's giving me a lot of advice."
Day also shared that she already met Piolo. "I was really embarrassed because it was at the sports fest," she narrated. "And I don't think his dad knew that we were talking and stuff."
"So at the sports fest, he was playing badminton and I was giving him his water and his towel. And then his dad started looking at me and I said, 'Iñigo, I'm scared,'" she said.
Asked if Iñigo has a chance with her, she teased: "I think so."
