Alexa Ilacad says her mom approves of KD Estrada: ‘Botong-boto siya’
Alexa Ilacad revealed that her mother approves of her onscreen partner, singer-actor KD Estrada, with the actress saying that they are still in the courting stage.
Ilacad spoke about the status of her relationship with Estrada during an interview with the morning show “Magandang Buhay,” which was uploaded on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s official YouTube channel last Tuesday, June 7.
“Nakakatuwa po [si KD] actually. Kasi minsan lumalabas kami, let’s say after work, after [ng] pag-uwi namin, aakyat siya sa house tapos maghe-hello siya kay Mommy ta’s lagi niyang sasabihan ng, ‘Tita, thank you for letting me take out your daughter.’ Ta’s si Mommy, ‘Ano bang ginawa niyo? Ano ba, okay lang naman,’” she said.
(KD is amusing actually. Because when we sometimes go out, let’s say after work, after coming home, he would visit our house then he would say “hello” to Mommy. He would constantly say, “Tita, thank you for letting me take out your daughter.’ Then my Mommy would say, “What did you do? Don’t worry, it’s fine.”)
When asked by host Jolina Magdangal if the singer-actress’ mother approves of Estrada, she said that her mom is very supportive of the “Days” singer.
“Si Mommy, botong-boto [siya]. Super (Mommy approves of him a lot. Super),” she said in response, while her loveteam partner was spotted smiling during Ilacad’s response.
During the interview, the “Killer Bride” star admitted that Estrada is still courting her until this day.
“Actually, past tense na ‘yung naganap [ang panliligaw]. So present tense,” Ilacad replied to host Melai Cantiveros. “Yes, [nililigawan niya ako] for a very long time because why the rush?”
(Actually, it’s past tense to say that he’s done courting me, so present tense. Yes, he’s courting me for a very long time because why the rush?)
The “Pinoy Big Brother” alum seconded Ilacad’s statement saying, “Why rush a good thing?”
Ilacad and Estrada first crossed paths as housemates in “Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10” which aired from October 2021 to May 2022.
The loveteam, also known as KDLex, admitted during an interview with Philippine Daily Inquirer that they refused to “put a label” in their relationship despite being sweet to one another on- and off-screen.
“We see each other as partners but right now, especially with our very busy careers, we don’t want to put a label on it. We fear this will only cause problems later on; that it’s going to make the relationship more high maintenance. As of now, we just want to take it slow,” Estrada said. EDV
