Sen Chiz Escudero, Heart Evangelista grace a Christmas party for the Senate media

RELAXED MOMENT. Sen Chiz Escudero and Heart Evangelista spend time together at Escudero's Christmas party for Senate reporters.

MANILA, Philippines – “Chiz, bakit ngayon ka lang?”

Actress Heart Evangelista teased Sen Chiz Escudero as she gamely sang songs with reporters during the reelectionist senator’s Christmas party for the Senate media.

Heart graced the “Rockeoke Night”-themed party in Manila on Wednesday, December 13. She chatted with Escudero and Senate reporters throughout the night.

Escudero’s girlfriend sang the song Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang with reporters, nudging him to sing with her. “Sa KrisTV nga, napapakanta ka,” Heart laughed. (You even sing on KrisTV.)  

The power couple has been seen together in public after Escudero confirmed on Kris Aquino’s morning show KrisTV that they are dating.

Last week, Escudero’s love life became the topic of a moment of levity during Reproductive Health (RH) bill amendments.

Sen Pia Cayetano said she asked him whether he would prefer safe or satisfying sex for his wife. “I’m speaking [hypothetically]. I assume you will have a wife again because I know that you are currently in love.”

Escudero laughed at the comment. His marriage with estranged wife, Christine, has been annulled.
