Stell of SB19 says he's single but...

Stell of SB19 is very much single, but he is already taken—taken by A'TIN, the name of the P-Pop group's fanbase! 

On Tuesday's episode of "Fast Talk With Boy Abunda," Stell opened up on how he acquired his nickname as the "forever boyfriend" of SB19's fans.

According to him, he was once asked in an interview about his relationship status.

"Tinanong ako kung meron akong girlfriend and sinabi ko wala. Ta's lahat sila nagtampo sa social media na parang, 'Ah wala ka palang girlfriend, so ano kami?'" Stell said about the fans' reaction to his answer.

"So sabi ko, 'Ah gusto n'yo pala ng ganitong klaseng biruan, OK. So ever since po sabi ko, 'Sige, dahil ganyan 'yung gusto n'yo, ako na 'yung forever boyfriend n'yo.'"

From then on, Stell adopted the "forever boyfriend" as his tagline in his posts and concert spiels as an inside joke with A'TIN.

"Nakakatuwa kasi meron kaming ganung interaction. Pero ano po 'yun, may boundaries pa rin like hindi talaga siya super sineseryoso ng A'TIN," he said.

Stell is one of the five members of SB19, along with Pablo, Ken, Josh, and Justin. Among their hit songs include "GENTO," "MAPA," "Bazinga," and "Go Up."

He is also one of the coaches of "The Voice Generations," which airs on Sundays at 7 p.m. after "Bubble Gang."
