Anton Diva is happy and content with his current love status. “Nakita ko na ‘yung para sa akin talaga”, he shared. The good thing is his partner never gets jealous of Kapamilya heartthrob Gerald Anderson whom he admits having a huge crush on. In fact, he stuttered in this interview as he talked about Gerald whom he described as every woman or gay’s fantasy.
As a surprise, Anton got a video greeting from Gerald congratulating him for his concert. Anton shrieked in kilig as he heard Gerald say “I love you.” The performer jokingly remarked that each “I love you” equates to a certain price to gays like him but, with Gerald, the case is different. “Gerald, I really feel na sincere ka dun sa ‘I love you’ mo,” Anton said in jest.
Nevertheless, he still picked his partner over Gerald in the Fast Talk Challenge. Still in the said segment, Anton revealed same-sex marriage and gender confirmation surgery are not part of his plans.
Anton, a former Engineering student in De La Salle University, said he would have been an engineer if he did not try his luck in showbiz.
Anton may have started his career mimicking Regine Velasquez’ singing style but he’s now set to prove there’s more to him than being just an impersonator. Anton will shine his brightest on his solo concert entitled “Shine XXIIAD”; with special guests Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda and the Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez whom he calls his icon and hero.
