In the same interview, Coco shared:
“Deserving talaga si Vice. Unang una, pinaghirapan niya ‘yan. Kitang-kita ko at kung may nakakaalam no’n, kaming dalawa. Parehong wala pa kami dito sa showbiz, magkasama na kami at nasubaybayan namin ang bawat isa. Lahat ng pinaghirapan namin, lahat ng panlalait, di sa amin naniniwala and then, ngayon, heto na kahit papaano nabibigyan ng pansin, nare-recognize na. Napakasaya ko para sa aming dalawa.”
