It was during the final quarter 2014 when Nikko Natividad gained his ticket to stardom by being a candidate and eventually becoming as the grand champion of It’s Showtime’s Gandang Lalaki contest. Shortly after, he continued his stint on the noontime variety show as a member of the show’s ‘kilig ambassadors’ named Hashtags. He would then make a big revelation when he joined Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 in 2016. Nikko would divulge that he is already a father to an adorable child named Aiden.
While most similar disclosures signaled the end of showbiz career, Nikko’s career still thrived. Aside from appearing on the hit Kapamilya noontime show, Nikko also became a prominent actor, portraying roles in teleseryes such as Hanggang Saan in 2017 and the top-rating FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano last year. Currently, he plays Gino Bartolome in the phenomenal afternoon teleserye Kadenang Ginto.
In his interviews, Nikko always talked about Aiden and being a father to his precious bundle of joy. However, we haven’t heard much about the love of his life. Thus, to end our curiosity, Hashtag Nikko created his own YouTube channel in July 2019 and featured this special woman in his life on his channel’s very first vlog.
Nikko started his vlog by responding to netizen speculations about his girlfriend. He clarified, “Hindi ko naman po siya kinakahiya, gusto lang namin ng private na buhay.”
As the vlog continued, he introduced his lovely life partner Cielo, who wittily entered the scene by pegging Daniela Mondragon (Dimples Romana) of Kadenang Ginto. Donning a red off-shouldered dress and carrying a purse and a suitcase, she flaunted her own version of the “Dani Girl” meme.
Apart from introducing Cielo, Hashtag Nikko gave us a tour of their hometown, Malolos, Bulacan. Aside from being born and raised in Malolos, Nikko told us that it is where their baby Aiden was born as well. They showed the two apartments where his family first lived and the historic Barasoain Church, where baby Aiden was baptized.
After that vlog, Hashtag Nikko became more open about Cielo in his social media accounts. Uploaded on their vlog is a video that shows how his beloved Cielo manages a shoe and bag merchandising business. Nikko also gave a heart-melting message to Cielo in his Instagram account, where he posted a picture of them and wrote in his caption: “Maaaring hindi ikaw ang pinaka maganda, hindi ikaw ang pinaka sexy at hindi ka sikat tulad ng sinasabi nila. Pero ikaw naman ang pinaka FAITHFUL at MABUTING tao na nakilala ko.”
What a sweet couple indeed! See some of the Hashtag Nikko Natividad’s photos with his beloved Cielo in this gallery.
