Despite his busy schedule, President Benigno Aquino 3rd said he still finds the time for courtship.
In a recent “Fast Talk” segment of ABS-CBN’s “Gandang Gabi Vice,” Aquino revealed that he did have a girlfriend, up until “several months ago,” that is.
He, however, did not name the girl.
The President said he is currently single.
According to him, he would prefer a future girlfriend to be younger than him so that he would have a chance at having children in the future.
When asked about his ligaw (courtship) style, the President said he likes to sing, but had never tried to serenade a girl.
“Harana, hindi ko pa yata nagawa sa buong buhay ko ‘yon [Serenade, I don’t think I have done it],” he added. “Kung kakanta ako, sabay kami sigurong kumakanta [If I have to sing, maybe she and I will have to sing together].”
For the first time, the President confirmed that he was previously in a relationship with TV personality Grace Lee.
Aquino has generally been silent about his personal life.
His last reported love interest was a lawyer from the Department of Interior and Local Government.
The President had been linked to former Valenzuela City (Metro Manila) Councilor Shalani Soledad and celebrity stylist Liz Uy.
