These were the words of Jessa Zaragosa when asked if she would allow her only daughter Jayda to have a boyfriend already.
In an interview with Vina Morales for the latter's YouTube vlog, the singer said that Jayda is already at the right age to be in a relationship.
"Oo, matatanggap ko na. Oo, at saka mag-e-18 na siya. So puwede na at saka matured na mag-isip. Basta boyfriend lang, huwag asawa," she said.
Jessa was also asked if she would approve of Darren Espanto if ever he becomes Jayda's boyfriend.
"Kung magustuhan niya si Darren, oo. Kung magustuhan niya si Darren, eh 'di okay,” she stated.
She added that Jayda and Darren are very close.
“Sobrang close 'yung dalawa. Kahit hindi sila madalas nag-uusap, alam ko malalim ‘yong samahan nila. At saka nire-respeto nila ang isa’t isa," she stated.
Darren and Jayda collaborated on a song titled "Sana Tayo Na" in July 2020.
In an interview with RX 93.1 last year, Darren said that their goal for their collaboration is to bring joy to their fans.
"Since there's so much going on the word and all... probably that's why we released the song para iba naman ang maramdaman ng tao. They will feel a bit of happiness and a bit of kilig in their lives," Darren relayed.
He added, "That's one of our objectives. We're really happy that a lot of people have been supporting the song, they've been listening and watching the video as well."
