Karla Estrada’s Non-Showbiz Boyfriend Opened Up About Their Relationship On His First TV Interview
Kapamilya Tv host-actress Karla Estrada finally confirmed her relationship with her rumored non-showbiz boyfriend in the morning talk show Magandang Buhay on November 14, 2019.
Now, it was Karla’s boyfriend, Jam Ignacio, who made his first TV appearance in the same program to share more on his relationship with the 45-year-old momshie host.
In their episode last Wednesday, November 27, Jam was asked by momshie Melai to share when and how their love story started.
Jam first revealed the date when he first met Karla is June 1, 2019.
Followed by his first impression on her, which he immediately replied, describing her as a beautiful woman.
Another question was thrown to him by the Magandang buhay host asking if he felt that there’s a spark between them.
Jam said, “Kasi, nagkakatinginan kami madalas, e.”
Momshie Jolina also asked Jam as to when did he knew that his feelings for their co-momshie host is already love, to which he answered,
“Yung madalas na kami magkasama, nung nakilala ko siya mas mabuti.”
Jam also explained the reason why he immediately fell in love with Karla,”Hindi naman siya mahirap mahalin, e.”
For her part, Karla said that she is also happy to finally have a relationship that she proudly share with everyone.
The 45-year-old Kapamilya host-actress explained ,
“Masaya naman. At saka bago sa akin ‘to dahil wala pa naman talaga akong naiharap [sa public]. First time. Kahit yung mga tatay ng mga anak ko, parang hiyang-hiya ako, kasi kung kelan naman may apat na akong anak… But, you know, sabi nga ni Vice [Ganda], deserve natin lahat ito na lumigaya, sumaya.”
She also admitted that she initially had hesitations about her real feelings for Jam, “Actually, ang bilis nung sa akin, parang antagal ko nang heartbroken. Kaya lang, nagdadalawang-isip ako dahil baka natutuwa lang ako na meron ganoong tao na nagpapakita ng concern.
“Natutuwa ako sa tapang niya kasi, di ba, sobrang lakas ng personality ko, ang tapang kong tao… Pumunta siya sa bahay na hindi naman niya inisip na bahay namin yun, kung sino yung nakatira doon, e. Three days pa lang kaming magkakakilala, pumunta siya, nagdala siya ng bulaklak, may coffee,” Karla added.
Jam also shared that Karla’s status as a celebrity is something that he didn’t consider as a hindrance for pursuing the TV host-actress.
“Di ko na naisip na parang superstar siya na… inano ko lang siya, na parehas lang kami na normal na tao. Kung ano yung dapat gawin ng isang lalaki sa babae, yun naman ang ginagawa ko,” he explained.
He even tagged Karla as an answered prayer, “Ipinagdadasal ko kasi na may dumating sa akin na malaking pagbabago, ibinigay nga sa akin yung malaki… Malaking puso na kayang mahalin yung kaibigan ko, pamilya ko. Ganoon kalaki ang puso niya, e.”
When asked about his relationship with Karla’s children, including the TV host-actress’ eldest child, actor Daniel Padilla. Jam said, “God’s way na rin. Siya na rin ang parang gumawa ng way para magkaroon kami ng bonding ng mga anak niya, makilala ko sila nang mabuti. Kasi galing din ako sa kung ano yung naranasan niya… galing din kasi ako doon.”
Just like the momshie host, Jam also has two children from his previous relationship.
Karla interjected, “Hindi kami nahirapan i-explain kung, ‘Ano ba? Paano natin uumpisahan ito?’ kasi halos pareho kami ng pinagdaanan.”
She continued, “Since 1991, wala kayong makikitang interview na nagsasalita ako tungkol sa love life ko. Ang katuwiran ko lagi noon, parang ang pribado na puwede kong maitabi, because alam ko naman ang mga tao, meron at meron silang masasabi.
“Pero kasi ngayon, parang ito na yung point na tama, wala tayo dapat ikabahala sa sasabihin ng ibang tao.”
Karla shared that she and Jam both agreed to respect what their children can give when it comes to their relationship. She also explained,
“Kasi meron din naman talaga silang nanay, meron din yung sa akin, mga tatay… Ang importante, may respeto sa amin din yung mga anak namin.”
