Angel Locsin says dating football star Phil Younghusband is anything but a publicity stunt.
After she was last seen on local TV cheering her heart out with the rest of the Azkals fans at the Rizal Memorial Stadium last July 3 during their momentous 4-0 win against Sri Lanka, Angel Locsin admitted she has gotten closer to Fil-Brit Azkals forward Phil Younghusband. During the Century Tuna press conference last July 7 at the Hotel Intercon in Makati city where she and Phil were launched as the newest endorsers, the 26-year-old actress said that she does not care if some people think her blossoming romance with Phil is just a publicity stunt. “Hindi namin kailangan ng

If this is any indication as to their growing closeness, then the adoring public need only wait before any big announcement. Angel said that the despite the intrigues, her relationship with Phil has only been growing stronger. “Sa bawat
controversy naman na lumalabas, mas lalo namin nakikilala ang isa’t isa kasi kunwari may bagong
issue, magtatanong ako sa kanya tapos siya rin magtatanong sa akin. At hindi rin kasi kami masyado nagpapaapekto sa kung anong sinasabi ng iba. Mas importante sa amin kung ano ginagawa ng isa’t isa,
” she explained.
Angel also assured her fans that if ever the time comes that she and Phil do end up officially becoming a couple, she will gladly share the news with the world. “Aaminin ko naman kung ganun. Pero nasa ganitong
stage pa lang kami. Wala rin naman kaming
control sa iniisip ng ibang tao. Hindi rin naman namin sila ma-
blame kasi pag nakikita nila kami sa
public, naiisip nila yun
