After admitting he had started dating his college batchmate Maiqui Pineda last year, Robi Domingo shared everything has been going well in his life this year. The talented host added they were able to celebrate Valentine’s day despite their busy schedules. 

“Okay naman siya, medyo busy pero nakasingit naman ng isang gathering. Parang hindi pa kami makapag-couple trip kasi everyone’s so busy including her,” he told PUSH. 

Robi revealed that he admires his girlfriend because of her beliefs and values in life. 

“She’s independent and she’s different. She fights for local right now. Kasi she’s into art and she supports local. So medyo different from my world. Yung sa kanya, art in a sense na paintings, sculptures and anything na ginagamit ng mga Pinoy. Yung mga local weavers tinutulungan niya. And at the same time malayo yun sa trabaho ko. She works in the finance industry,” he said. 

Another woman Robi is inspired with is his mom Mary Ann who he has always looked up to. 

“My mom is my hero kasi pinagpalit niya yung trabaho niya for her family. My mom works as a pediatrician pero pinagpalit niya yung work niya just to take care of us. So for me that’s noble kasi family first before personal goals yun,” he said. 

Robi also revealed their favorite bonding activity at home. “She used to watch lots of teleseryes and ako kaya medyo na-imbibe ko yung teleseryes ng ABS-CBN kasi tutok kami palagi. Yung mga bonding namin sa Mula Sa Puso, Esperanza, bata pa lang ako pinapanuod ko na yun.”
