Luis Manzano on Jennylyn Mercado's son: 'Basta handa akong maging tito para kay Jazz'


080511-luis_main.jpgIt is already public knowledge that Luis Manzano and Jennylyn Mercado are dating after the former's revelation on Entertainment Live last May. In a recent interview with Jennylyn's ex-boyfriend and father of her son Alex Jazz, Patrick Garcia, the actor wished Luis and Jennylyn well and hopes that Luis will love his son. Luis told Push.com.ph that he knew about Patrick's message. "Si Pat kasi nakasama ko siya sa Kampanerang Kuba, my very first teleserye. Pat, thank you so much for the kind words. Thank you so much sa lahat ng magandang sinabi mo. Kahit ano namang mangyari nirerespeto ko silang dalawa bilang magulang. Jazz is an incredible boy, napakakulit, napakagwapo, thank you so much na to think anak mo iyon, mayroong aspect na ipinagkakatiwala mo sa akin," Luis said.

As to loving Jen and Jazz, Luis does not want to make promises as he believes that love comes naturally to a person. "If you will give an assurance sana naging manghuhula na lang ako pero if you try to give your best in everything that you do, don't necessarily give an assurance but you could at least give a 110% of your effort.”

Furthermore, Luis said no matter how smooth things are going on between him and Jen now, he can never take the place of Pat as Jazz's father. "I don't want to say (Jazz is) a son, that's for me---medyo taking away something from Pat. Pero siguro handa akong maging isang tito. Ayoko namang maging ama, masyadong ma-assume yun, respeto na lang kay Pat. Basta handa akong maging tito kay Jazz."

Luis and Jen have been going out for more than two months now but neither confirms that they are officially a couple. "Ibase niyo na lang sa E-live at Kris TV interview ko, I said it all. My stand pa rin naman kasi is I will not answer questions na kung nasagot ko na rin naman dati. Ayaw kasi namin ng showbiz, e. Kung baga yung mga natanong na dati, yun pa rin ang mga sasabihin ko. Pero I can say na hindi kami. Just to clarify, to some people who imply na---sabi ko nga in showbiz there are so many factors. There's a lie, there's what people want to hear, that people want to believe is truth. Yung sa amin ang daming naga-assume na kami na, nagfi-feeling na alam na kami na, basta we're just enjoying everything that we are doing now," Luis said with confidence.

What Luis is definitely sure of now is that his and Jen's personality connect really well. "Isipin niyo siya na parang ako na makulit. Lahat naman tayo moody, kahit naman ako, you can ask Billy (Crawford) may mga moments na gusto mo tahimik lang sa sarili mo. Makulit din yung babaeng yun. Hindi naman kami aabot sa puntong ito kung hindi nagja-jive ang ugali namin."
