“Alam ko na don na ang susunod. Ayaw ko ng magsayang ng oras,” Luis Manzano answered when asked if he’s ready to tie the knot any time soon now that he just turned 32. In an exclusive interview with Toni Gonzaga on The Buzz, the host/actor said that he’s open to the fact that he will be committing to family life in the near future now that he’s not getting any younger.
“Kung si Jen (Jennylyn Mercado) ang pinag-uusapan natin, she has a longer way to go. Ako I’m not getting any younger but I will completely respect, admire and understand na si Jen bago maging asawa, priority niya ang maging isang mabuting ina, which she already is,” he explained.
On that note, Toni commented how fortunate Jen is to be in such a relationship. Luis replied, “But I’d rather say that she is the bigger blessing sa aming dalawa.”
Without a doubt, Luis has already achieved so much in his professional endeavors. He is currently hosting three major TV programs on ABS-CBN: Minute to Win It, Pilipinas Got Talent, and Kapamilya Deal or No Deal. He also has a recurring role in the hit teleserye Be Careful With My Heart. When asked if he expected such blessings in his career, he commented, “May idea ako kung ano ang gusto kong mangyari pero sabi ko nga everything falls into place in its perfect time. Di ko na-imagine na aabot ako sa ganito.”
Nonetheless, the multi-awarded and in-demand male TV host of his generation is totally aware of how show business works. “Dito sa industriya kahit gaano karami ang iyong ginagawa, maybe tomorrow wala ka ng ginagawa. Paikot lang talaga yan. So kung baga at this point sa lahat ng nangyayari sa atin, alam mo chamba lang. So far nandon lang ako sa puntong ‘yun sa industriya,” he commented.
Moreover, Luis couldn’t help but be overwhelmed that he’s constantly being compared to his father Edu Manzano who is well-known for his hosting skills. “You know, just for you to say that [is] maybe one of the biggest compliments a man can ever receive,” he told Toni.
