Ogie Alcasid recently talked about getting to know daughter Leila Alcasid’s boyfriend, Mito Fabie aka rapper Curtismith, on Magandang Buhay. When the hosts brought up the topic, Ogie joked, “E ako, natuwa ba ako?” LOL! He had a classic dad vibe talking about his daughter having a boyfriend, which is both adorable and familiar to anyone who has ever introduced an SO to parents.
The singer-songwriter said Mito has joined their family get-togethers several times. “Gusto ko kasi nakikilala niya kami at nakikilala rin namin siya.” Mito joined them last Christmas and met the whole family including Michelle van Eimeren, Leila’s mom and Ogie’s ex-wife, and Mark Morrow, Michelle’s husband.
Leila and Mito have been pretty low-key about their relationship, but Ogie revealed that they celebrated their anniversary this month. “Nagpaalam. Nagpunta sa Taiwan.” He said he encourages her to travel while she’s young to broaden her horizons.
As a dad, Ogie is all for treating Leila, who is 21, like an adult. “Hindi na siya bata. Ine-encourage ko siya na lahat ng responsibilidad na sana magampanan niya ay gawin na niya tulad ng pagbabayad ng bills. May sarili siyang checkbook. Hindi na puwedeng ako lahat.” He would tell her, “Adult ka na—alam mo na ang tama at mali. Kung magkamali ka, sige, magkamali ka para matuto.”
