Alexa Ilacad said she and fellow former Pinoy Big Brother housemate KD Estrada have both been busy preparing for their special show Closer: The KDLex FanCon for their KDLex fans.
“Ready na kami! Excited super. We’re just going to rehearse our songs. Vocal warmup. Inom ng luya (laughs),” Alexa joked during the Closer mediacon last February 22.
Even though their fans would love to see them get together officially in real life, Alexa laughed off rumors that she and KD now have promise rings.
“Matchy lang kami. Yung white gold yun yung bigay niya. Pero ito matchy lang kami. Bumili ako. Wala lang. Mahilig kasi kami sa alahas. Eh sikat naman kasi yung Cartier na ring. Yun yung gusto namin. Nagkataon lang (laughs),” she said.
The 21-year-old actress and singer also reacted to a photo of herself and KD in a hug that recently circulated online.
“Grabe parang ang daming paparazzi nagulat din ako. Bumisita lang ako sa shoot niya parang wala lang (laughs). Wala namang tao nun. Hindi ko rin alam kung sinong kumuha nun. Ang galing,” she added.
Aside from their grand fan meet-and-greet, Alexa said she is also looking forward to another project with KD slated for this year.
“We just had our story pitching last night so we’re so excited. We got to know the story more and it’s beautiful and we’re so excited. I don’t think we can share anything further. We don’t know exactly when it’s going to be shown but of course summer. And we’re going to start taping in mid-March. Abangan na lang nila,” she revealed.
When asked to confirm the real score between them, Alexa explained why its not the right time for her and KD to get into a relationship.
“Not yet. Actually kasi of course there’s something blossoming or on the way or something like that. Like a picture it’s developing. But we really had this talk and I really told him na I don’t want him to get into anything serious or I don’t want him to get into a relationship yet because with so many things happening to us right now, it can get overwhelming as well. So I thought that the smart and mature thing to do was to just focus on our work. It sounds so showbiz pero yun kasi talaga.
“Kasi honestly it can be a bit stressful naman talaga so sabi ko if we add a relationship on top of that it might be hard to handle na. So I think it would be better to just enjoy each other’s company, enjoy whatever we have right now. Hello we just got out of the house. So we don’t have to rush into things right away. Sa totoo lang puwede na nga eh pero for me lang kasi talaga, especially for him because he’s new to all of this and I really want him to enjoy what’s happening to his career, what’s happening to him and I just want everything to go so smoothly. I just think it’s the more mature thing to do,” she explained.
