Maris answered, “First Valentine’s namin ni Rico, ‘yung feeling na secret pa kami, wala pa nakaka-alam. May binigay siya na malaking bulaklak, so dala ko sa set kasi 
saan ko siya iiwan. Sobrang happy ako nu’n.” She also added that she cherishes those days when they have their privacy about their romance.

“Yes, meron talaga siyang positive impact. Unang-una, sa age namin, meron kaming iba’t ibang levels ng experience sa buhay, sa mundo. So, nasi-share namin yun sa isa’t isa. Hindi nagma-matter sa amin ‘yung dominant, sino ‘yung recessive. We’re both like that. It’s just that pinag-uusapan namin lahat,” she said.

“Hindi kami nagkukuwenta sino mas magaling magbigay ng love, or sino mas mahal yung isa. It’s just that mahal namin ang isa’t isa and we just want to keep each other around.”
