It’s no secret that celeb couple Drew Arellano and Iya Villania’s kids Primo and Leon have a huge fanbase who would gush over the cutest things the two are caught doing on camera. Although Drew and Iya don’t necessarily have a problem with it, they draw the line when out with their kids in public.

“We want to spread happiness and good vibes… But I think some people become so giddy when they see them that they don’t realize, sometimes, they’re forgetting about personal space,” Iya told reporters during a recent press conference for her ongoing weekday series in GMA 7, Home Foodie.
She recalled a tweet that Drew posted a few months prior about strangers taking photos of their children in public, where he pleaded fans to “show a lil respect and etiquette.”
If I were to lose my cool and I’m usually cool about things, it would be to strangers who whip out their phones and take snaps of my 2 boys without asking. Please show a lil respect and etiquette, ladies and gents.#youdonotwanttoseemelosemycool

“I think Drew just wanted to put it out there and to remind them that he knows they’re amused by our kids. But when we’re out as a family, the kids should be able to enjoy their own time,” Iya explained.
Although she doesn’t mind it when fans gawk over the boys from a distance, she stays on guard for when they attempt to get too close.
“If I feel like they’re taking so much of Primo’s space and can’t move freely, that’s when I step in and say something,” she said. “There’s a nice way of doing this; you don’t have to be rude. But I’m OK as long as they just let him do his own thing.”
