For Francine Diaz, having a boyfriend is not yet a priority. Instead, she wishes to concentrate on her career first.

In her interview on Magandang Buhay, one of the questions the young actress was asked was, "Pag-ibig o karera?" To which she replied, "Saka na po siguro [ang love life] kapag naibigay ko na po ang lahat kina mama." ICYDK, she is her family's breadwinner and she's been very vocal about letting her love life take the backseat for her acting career.

Francine, who turned 18 on January 27, was also asked whether she can ~entertain~ suitors already, and she revealed that she first asked her mom about it when she was still a child. "Actually ako, bata pa tinatanong ko na sa nanay ko. Sabi ko, 'Mama, kailan ako pwedeng mag-boyfriend?' 'Manahimik ka, ako ang magsasabi.' Nagtitiklop kasi siya noon, so nabigla siya sa tanong ko." LOL!

After her debut, she said that she opened up the topic to her mom again. "Tapos ngayon tinanong ko siya ulit, 'Paano mama kung may umamin?' Kahit wala naman. Tinanong ko lang. Sabi niya, 'Ligaw lang,'" she recalled.


In the same interview, the Gen Z actress also opened up about the important life lessons she has learned so far.

"Hindi lang naman po nung nag-18 ako na ito ang lesson ko sa life. Talagang don't give up. Ako po kumbaga para akong nasa tunnel, madilim. So kung hindi ako maglalakad, 'di ko makikita ang light. So don't give up; just keep going," she divulged.

Wise words indeed!
