Hashtags member Nikko Natividad has certainly achieved a lot in his showbiz career. From trying his luck in It’s Showtime’s “Gandang Lalaki” and eventually winning in the competition as the grand champion, to being part of the hunk group Hashtags. He then became fortunate to be chosen as one of the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 in 2016.
And his career just continued to blossom as he had appearances in some of the Kapamilya network’s biggest teleseryes, including 2017 series Hanggang Saan, the longest-running primetime drama FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, and the most-talked afternoon teleserye Kadenang Ginto.
Now, Nikko is also part of the drama romance series Init sa Magdamag as he portrays the role of Simon. But of all the characters that he has played, the role of being a father to his son and the role of being a partner to his girlfriend Cielo are his two most important life roles. And undoubtedly, his partner Cielo has been by his side since day one, through his ups and downs.
The actor introduced her through his first vlog in his YouTube channel that debuted in 2019. Nikko even cleared out the issue that the netizens and fans have said about his girlfriend. “Hindi ko naman po siya kinakahiya, gusto lang namin ng private na buhay,” he clarified in the vlog. Since then, Nikko has become more open on social media about their relationship. One of their vlogs even shared the shoe and bag merchandising business that his partner is managing.
But their relationship was also put into test by huge challenges that almost broke what they had. The actor admitted in one of their vlogs as well as in his Magandang Buhay guesting that he once cheated on her. But what he realized after was that you really shouldn’t really treat people as how you wouldn’t want to be treated.

In the same vlog, Nikko said that even if his career in showbiz came first before he met Cielo or before he had a son with her, he would still love her. He added that he already promised to his partner that he would never do that again and since then, he became more mature, especially as a partner. In the vlog, Nikko admitted that before, he would envy his co-members from Hashtag because of the freedom they have. But now, Nikko said, all he thinks of is the good life that he wants to provide for his family.
