Atom Araullo may be in the world of news and journalism, wherein the atmosphere is a bit more serious than showbiz, but he is also known for his good looks.
The promotional materials for Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil‘s movie, Alone/Together, has led to people digging about their old photos, including Arullo’s mother, Carol Pagaduan.
In a tweet, Araullo told his mom that there was someone who compared her childhood photo to Soberano.
Me: Ma, may nagkukumpara sa‘yo at kay Liza Soberano sa bago niyang pelikula (shows photos)
Ma: Mas maganda naman si Liza.
Me: Mangingisda ka rin pala 🎣

When he shared the comparison, Pagaduan told his son that Soberano is much more beautiful. This resulted to him teasing his mom about fishing for compliments.
Netizens reacted to the adorable banter, saying that it’s no surprise that the journalist is handsome as well.
Now we know why you’re so cute.
