After publicly introducing model Samantha Lewis as his girlfriend at the 8th Star Magic Ball in September, Enchong Dee has confirmed that she already met his parents.
He told ABS-CBN News, “Two months ago, sumama siya (Samantha) sa Sunday mass tapos kumain kami after…”
Since the first meeting, Enchong said the Fil-British model is often invited to various family gatherings, particularly every Sunday.
Such is his parents’ acceptance of her that he shares they would even joke, “’Papakainin ka namin kasi ang payat-payat mo.’ So ’yun ang goal nina mama at papa, na pakainin siya nang sobra.”
Enchong, on his part, said that Samantha already introduced him to her mother and colleagues.
“Actually may deal kami. Sabi ko, sige sa Star Magic Ball ako ang magpapakilala sa mga friends ko, sa mga katrabaho ko. Pero pagdating sa Fashion Ball, ikaw naman ang magpapakilala sa akin kasi mundo mo ‘yon. So ginawa naman niya, so ako sunod lang nang sunod sa kanya,” he recalled.
Menwhile, the hunk is thankful that Samantha is supportive of his career, saying, “masaya at parang lahat ng trabaho ko ngayon ay mas naiintindihan na niya – from tours abroad, to tapings, to shootings (and) music videos. Unti-unti na rin niyang nakikilala ‘yung mga tao – my friends, my work. Nagiging part of it na siya.”
Enchong has already released his self-titled debut album under Star Records featuring his radio hit single “Chinito Problems,” “Isip O Puso,” “Step No Step Yes,” “Hanggang Dito Na Lang,” among others.
