Karla Estrada reveals long-distance relationship with non-showbiz BF
Karla Estrada is happy with her love life despite the distance that keeps her and her boyfriend apart.
The singer and television host opened up on her seven-year relationship with her non-showbiz boyfriend in a “Tonight with Boy Abunda” interview aired Tuesday night, Feb. 26.
Estrada is currently seeing Mark Yatco, who she introduced in a 2014 episode of the now-defunct morning show “Kris TV.”
When talk-show host Boy Abunda brought up that Estrada does not believe in the concept of long-distance relationships, she admitted: “Ngayon nangyayari [sa relationship namin], pinapabayaan ko na muna ng ganun (We currently have that type of relationship, I just leave it at that for now).”
She revealed that her boyfriend flew to the United States to care for his two children. “So I said, ‘Okay, okay.’ Kasi di ko kaya eh, pagdating sa mga anak, talagang give up ko talaga. Talaga ako’y isang ina.”
(So I said, “Okay, okay.” Because I can’t handle it. When it comes to children, I can give up everything. I really am a mother.)
Abunda then asked what their real status is, to which Estrada jokingly replied: “In a relationship, but it’s complicated.”
She added that they have talked out the possibility of meeting someone new while they are apart. “If may ma-meet ka dyan or may ma-meet ako, just tell me and ayusin natin kung saan tayo masaya,” Estrada said.
(If you meet someone new there or I meet someone new here, just tell me and let’s find out who we’re happy with.)
Estrada stars in the new comedy movie “Familia Blondina,” which is currently running in theaters. Katrina Hallare /ra
