Having similar interest is extremely important for a love team to succeed in the realm of showbiz—like the most essential ingredient in a recipe. Thankfully, both Maris and Iñigo are in the same wavelength, which is why lot of showbiz enthusiasts can’t get enough of them. Iñigo revealed to Inside Showbiz Weekly last year how their friendship started. Surprisingly, it was Iñigo’s father, the country’s one and only Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual, who started it all. Their love team, Iñigo revealed, was envisioned by Piolo when he met then-housemate Maris inside the Pinoy Big Brother House in 2014. Piolo was impressed by Maris’ musicality, prompting him to tell Maris to wait for Iñigo who was still in the U.S. This led Iñigo to introduce himself to Maris in a tweet to which Maris responded. They met on the set of Piolo’s Hawak Kamay soap opera. “It was so awkward,” he recalls. “Parang bata, parang kinikilig na ewan na hindi mo maintindihan.” Iñigo said MarNigo is worth the wait. “I like working with people who have the same passion and determination for what they’re doing. And with Maris you can see how passionate she is.” After Iñigo’s digicon, he was a guest in the Four of A Kind concert featuring Maris. They also figured in a love team production number in ASAP.
“I can say that she is my favorite person to perform with onstage. Iba kasi yung binibigay niya na energy. She doesn’t just sing the song. She lives in the song,” he says. “And when she looks at you, the energy is so different, so intense,” he ended. In a recent episode of Magandang Buhay, Maris said she doesn’t talk much about Iñigo with her parents. She revealed that she’s shy to open up about her personal whereabouts to her mom, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Maris then disclosed in Magandang Buhay that her mom found out that she and Iñigo are dating through social media and not directly from her. “Hindi kasi ako ma-ano… [makwento]. Tatawag ‘yan si mama, ‘Maris, lumabas pala kayo ni ano. Nabasa ko. Ano ‘yan?.. ‘Yung mga ganun, nalalaman lang nila,” she said. Did Maris’ mom didn’t like that she’s not open about Iñigo, or is this a sign that Maris and Iñigo can now officially go out on dates? Tell us your thoughts on the comments below! Read more:
