They say life is nothing but an opportunity for love to blossom and that’s definitely true for It’s Showtime Hashtags member, Ryle Santiago, and ASAP BFF5 member, Kira Balinger.
Last September 2017, Ryle surprised his fans and followers when he announced that Kira said yes as his date to the Star Magic Ball. Most of their fans didn’t expect it since they aren’t often seen together. He regularly performs on It’s Showtime while she performs on ASAP.
In a guesting for Magandang Buhay, Kira said that she’s very happy that everything turned perfectly fine. She also expressed her gratitude to Ryle for making her Star Magic Ball experience memorable.
When asked about the real score between them, Kira said, "We're really good friends. Marami kaming stuff in common and may tiwala naman ako sa kanya. He's very respectful to me and to my parents. We get along well.”

Kira also admitted that they've already known each other for years. “Matagal na po kaming magkakilala. Acquaintances. Pero recently lang kami naging magkaibigan na close,” she added. She also pointed out that Ryle hasn’t been showing signs yet that he’s courting her but she's happy with their blooming friendship. Last February, Ryle and Kira spent Valentine’s Day together. In an Instagram post, Kira said she spent that day “with the people very close to her heart.”
Meanwhile, Ryle also had a chance to talk about his own feelings for Kira on the morning talk show. He revealed that she is the closest woman to him that is not a family relative. He is not afraid to confide in her. “Sabi ko nga pwede po siya mag-apply sa mga barangay kasi sa kanya po ako nagrereklamo,” he joked. It is this relaxed bond that is bringing them closer and closer.

In the same episode, Ryle’s younger brother Lorenz shared that the family is always first to find out about relationships. But when quizzed whether the Hashtag member is in love, his cute response was, “Sa totoo lang, hindi ko po alam.”
He was then asked if Ryle has introduced Kira to the family, to which he said “Siyempre naman po . . . dapat pakilala mo din ‘yung girlfriend mo sa pamilya.” The entire studio erupted is screams with the confession, but then Lorenz was quick to clarify that his was a hypothetical scenario. “Nakalimutan niya lang mag-‘pag’,” Ryle explained.
