Are They Dating? Maris Racal Posts Sweet Duet With Rico Blanco, Greets Him Happy Birthday

The internet is going crazy demanding an answer: Are they or are they not? The 23-year-old actress Maris Racal posted a black and white photo of Rico Blanco on her Instagram account today, March 17th, captioning it with, “Hi Rico. Happy birthday.” Followed by a cowboy emoji.

And to make things even more kilig-worthy, the following slide is a video of Maris and Rico singing an acoustic cover of the Aqualung song, Brighter Than Sunshine. The two seem cozy in the video, smiling and looking at each other’s eyes while showcasing their vocal talents.

In the comments section, the now-48-year-old singer-songwriter Rico Blanco can be seen replying, “Hahaha love youu!!!???” Is this a friendly “love you” or is it romantic? Only Maris and Rico can tell. For now, we’ll be playing this soothing rendition of the song on loop, as we say to ourselves, sana all.
