Herbert Bautista Wants A Partner Who Is Independent

When did Kris Aquino and Herbert Bautista start dating.

Kris Aquino recently admitted on national television that she and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista are dating.

Aquino referred to her relationship with Bautista, a former actor, as a work in progress.

She said that her brother, President Benigno Aquino III, and her sisters have even given their blessing to her and Bautista.

Bautista was featured in the April 2014 issue of Esquire Philippines.

It can be assumed that his interview with the men’s magazine’s editor-in-chief, Erwin Romulo, was conducted within the first three months of the year.

In the interview, Bautista was asked about his love life – or lack of it – and his marriage plans but the mayor made no mention of Aquino or any other woman, even his long-time girlfriend Tates Gana.

‘No, I’m not seeing anyone at this point,’ he was quoted as saying, adding that his last relationship was in 2003.

Bautista went on to share what he is looking for in a partner.

That she is independent enough. These are the ideals but he does not know if there is an ideal out there.

He stressed that it is not that difficult to date a mayor, referring to his position.

But if both of you are willing to give each other enough time to be together or to understand each other at the end of the day, there is no problem.

He wants to get married even at the age of 46, Bautista said.

Kris dumped by suitor before Feb. 14

Early this year, Aquino confirmed reports that she is entertaining a suitor, whose name was not revealed.

On the February 17 episode of her morning show, Kris revealed that she was dumped by her unnamed suitor before Valentine’s Day, which also happens to be her birthday.
