Luis Manzano confirms that he and Jennylyn Mercado are officially a couple


111711-luis-main.jpgAfter several months of exclusively dating, Luis Manzano finally admitted that he and Jennylyn Mercado are now in a relationship. “Yeah, that’s formal na that we're together,” said the actor-host in an interview right after Showtime yesterday, November 16. Apparently, he already made hints during the November 14 episode of Kris TV.Oo, sinabi ko nga na may anniversary na kami. Secret kung kailan. Kahit anong interview hindi ko naman binigay yung detalye. Para kahit papano naman may matitira kami sa sarili namin.”

When asked how he proposed to Jennylyn to be his girlfriend, Luis shared that they both felt that everything just fell into place between them. “Ang sabi nga namin we’re just waiting for the right moment. I’ve been happy naman all through out. Kumbaga it was [just a matter of] sealing the dealing. Of course, I’m very happy [when she said yes]. Sinasabi naman namin na dun din papunta. It’s only a matter of time, ang daming pinapangunahan pa nga kami.

Luis maintained that nothing has changed with the way they treat each other now that they’re a couple. If anything, he stated that he’s more inspired knowing that he found someone special in his life again. “Honestly, walang pagkakaiba. It’s only a label. Sabi ko nga, kaya kami hindi nagmamadali. For any labels or for any commitment, how we were before is pretty much exactly the same way that we are right now. Ngayon lang may label na. I’m very happy. Napapansin ng ibang tao na medyo mas extra yung smiles ko. According to them, blooming nga daw ako.”

Apparently, his mom Batangas Governor Vilma Santos has known about it for quite some time now. “Na-text ko na sa kanya. Kaya palaging si mommy [kinukumusta si Jen]. For example, last night she asked me, ‘Are you with Jen?’ Sabi ko, ‘Yes.’ Sabi niya, ‘Ok, tell Jen I said hi.’ Hopefully, they get to spend time together. Yung simple dinner, kahit walang okasyon. Mas maganda nga yung ganon e para hindi busy masyado yung mga tao.”  

Luis added that Jennylyn has also introduced him to her family. "Yes, [na-meet ko na sila]. Medyo nakakagulat naman kung magkakaron kami ng ganong talk [na seryosong usapan tungkol sa relasyon namin with her mom]. Pero alam namin nila and they have been very nice to me since day one. Thank you very much.”

If there’s anything he could promise Jen, what would it be? “I don’t know. Ang hirap ng promises. Basta I’ll try my best to keep the smile on her face.”
