Luis, Angel now officially a couple-A A +A
Monday, February 17, 2014
AFTER articulating their love for each other, television host Luis Manzano confirmed that he's officially back in a relationship with "Legal Wife" actress Angel Locsin.
Manzano himself announced this development Sunday in an interview by King of Talk Boy Abunda on "Buzz ng Bayan."
The "Minute to Win It" main man said that he is at his happiest now.
"I'm proudly her (Angel) boyfriend," he said.
The 32-year-old host said that he and Locsin had tried to communicate with each other since their breakup some three years ago.
Manzano said that when Angel was doing "Showtime," her dressing room was situated next to his "Minute to Win It" room but they still did not have the chance to talk to each other. Also, they were never given the chance to meet on "ASAP" shows, where both them are part of, every Sunday.
"Effort na iwasan yun. No talk, no text, no see. We were just uncomfortable (with each other). We have a lot of unresolved issues," he said.
"Angel was scared to see me for the first time because iniisip niya there's so much negativity between us. That's why we also didn't want to see each other. Iniisip namin na baka it will breathe negativity," he added.
The "new love story," as Manzano calls it, begun days after Christmas.
They started talking again and on New Year's Day, he visited Angel in her house hoping to see the actress but she was early in bed.
"She was sleeping already. (Days after) a bit of the spark was rekindled. May konti na. I'm not sure if it's reciprocated but para sa akin meron. A few days after that, everything fell into place," he said.
In one interview of Angel early this year, she revealed that she is still in love with her former boyfriend.
"When she came on TV saying na mahal pa niya ako, (many thought) na I had no idea... na it was our first time to talk after so long. That's wrong because we were already talking beforehand," Manzano said.
"We got to spend time with each other, we were already enjoying each other's company and I'd like to think we were falling in love once again," he said.
Manzano clarified that he and the actress have ended their past relationships not because of their renewed love for each other.
Locsin had broken up with footballer Phil Younghusband while Manzano had a brief relationship with actress Jennylyn Mercado.
"Of course we consider our (former) partners dear to us. We'll be unfair naman if we'd say na hindi namin minahal. But I guess they broke up for a reason, we broke up for a reason and it's us parin through chance and destiny," Manzano said.
When asked about the topic of marriage, he replied "This year, maybe not. (2015) We'll call you (Abunda)." (Sunnex)
