Darren Espanto said he and Jillian Ward are friends and “getting to know each other” after they immediately clicked when the latter visited “It’s Showtime.” 

The two are currently being paired by the fans online, and when asked how he felt about it, Espanto said that he didn’t expect a positive reception from the viewers.


“Nagulat po kaming dalawa, kasi hindi po namin in-expect [‘yung feedback ng tao],” he told Boy Abunda.


Espanto then complimented Ward’s “bright aura” and shared that they are hoping to do a collaboration in the future. 

“She has this bright aura. Which is something that I noticed right away when I met her. Saka ano siya, she’s very shy until you get to know her,” he said.

“Before we parted ways, parang napag-usapan nga namin na sana one day, we could do a collaboration, kasi nagsama kami sa parang corporate event before. Malay po natin, makapag-prod po kami sa Showtime,” added the singer-host.

The “Voice Kids” alum revealed that Ward followed him on social media, which was a gesture he gave back. 

“After that episode, I was surprised, kasi siya pa ang unang nag-follow po sa akin, so I followed her back,” he shared.

When asked if he’s courting the actress, Espanto said that they are still “getting to know each other.”


“Hindi naman po. Friends lang. Getting to know each other. Kasi syempre, that’s the first time we ever met po, noong launch sa GMA [ng It’s Showtime],” he remarked.

Espanto recently revealed that he had past romantic relationships with Kyline Alcantara and Jayda Avanzado.
