After going public with their relationship last year, Mika Dela Cruz admitted that being low profile about their relationship was something she and boyfriend Nash Aguas both agreed upon from the very start. “Well actually last year nag-out na kami, ang pangit pakinggan (laughs) pero nag-out na kami sa relationship namin but it was not really a secret. Kumbaga ayaw lang namin na may nagingialam kasi siyempre we’re from different networks now so it doesn’t come easy makita ng mga tao or hindi nila agad agad naiintindihan. But usually yung fans naman kami alam nila yung story namin ever since dati pa so they support it and may mga gumagawa din ng fan pages pero ayaw namin mag-work together like showbiz stuff. Ayaw namin. What we have is personal. Ayaw namin masyadong nilalabas. Except sa vlogs ngayon kasi enjoy siya gawin,” she said to PUSH during the Sperry Varsity Prep Launch party in Quezon City.
The talented actress who first met Nash on the set of the now defunct Goin’ Bulilit back when they were both kids said that her boyfriend is not always as confident as he seems on screen. “Nakakatawa nga kasi (nung All Star Games) hindi naman talaga siya marunong mag-basketball pero kailangan niya ipamukha na marunong siya for their game. Makulit kasi siya eh. Usually introvert siya at mahiyain siya sa ibang tao and may wall siya. Hindi siya agad agad nag-o-open up pero sa mga vlogs ko minsan mukha kaming dalawang girlfriends. Kumbaga sobrang comfortable siya and yung funny side na comfortable side niya sa akin lumalabas actually sa mga vlogs ko. Even my sister (Angelika dela Cruz), ang tingin sa kanya onscreen maldita or masungit but yun yung kagandahan ng vlogging eh, kumbaga no one will judge. Yun yung platform mo to express talaga who you really are. No one will dictate to you na dapat ganito ka or you should act like this so it’s really fun. It’s a form of expression para sa akin,” she explained.
After recently reviving her YouTube channel, Mika said she is enjoying doing vlogs with Nash. “Actually siya lagi ang ni-re-request sa channel ko and I’m thinking na gumawa ng channel naming dalawa kasi magkababata kami ever since so talagang kabisado na namin yung isa’t isa and it’s fun doing it with him also and of course my friends. Enjoy siya. Even my ate and my mom also kumbaga it’s a family thing. Lahat sila nag-ge-guest sila sa channel ko,” she said.
