Grace Lee has met PNoy's sister
MANILA, Philippines - Korean television personality Grace Lee has already been introduced to President Benigno Aquino III's family.
Actress and TV host Kris Aquino said one of her sisters has "really nice words to say" about Lee.
"My ate has met her," Kris, the youngest Aquino sister, told ABS-CBN News.
Kris did not specify if it was Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, Pinky Aquino Abellada or Viel Aquino-Dee who has met the 29-year-old Korean.
Lee's manager, Arnold Vegafria, for his part, said: "When nagkukuwento siya (Lee) about him (Aquino), I can see the sparkle in her eyes. Talagang inspired din siya."
Earlier today, Aquino admitted that he is seeing Lee.
"We're seeing each other," Aquino told reporters in an ambush interview at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Philippine Information Agency in Quezon City on Wednesday.
He did not provide further details, citing his constitutional right to privacy.
Aquino first met Lee last year during the inauguration of the Korea Electric Power Corp. power plant in Cebu, where the latter was a co-host.
The bachelor President's past dates include celebrity stylist Liz Uy and stockbroker Len Lopez. He has also been linked to Bais City Mayor Karen Villanueva, Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia, actress Iza Calzado and Sabrina Chua of Singapore-based Channel News Asia.
His former girlfriend, Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad, recently tied the knot with Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo. -- Report from Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News
