Since passing on her crown, Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez has gotten back into acting. The former beauty queen just finished shooting her first movie G! LU. She’s about to start working on a new teleserye. She’s also taping a fashion show. On top of these, the 27-year-old lends support to causes she cares about. She’s a Peace Hero of the Teach Peace Build Peace Movement as well as a Children’s Rights Activist and Ambasadress for Save The Children.
Yet as packed as her schedule is, she still makes time to be with her boyfriend Nino Barbers. They see each other often, despite living over 760 km apart. To most, Nino is known as the owner of Bayud Boutique Resort in Siargao. But as it turns out, he’s quite a catch! At the AHC launch event in the Philippines, Katarina narrated just how their love story began, and revealed to us what he’s like as a boyfriend!
