Despite her son Luis Manzano’s relaxed attitude towards the idea of tying the knot, Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos couldn’t deny that she’s already excited to have her first grandchild.
Vilma’s statement coincidentally came days after Luis’s recent interview about his future proposal and wedding plans with girlfriend Angel Locsin.
In an interview with the Batangas Governor at the University of the Philippines' Film Institute for the launch of the remastered and digitally-restored films she starred in, she revealed that, "Siyempre [excited] pero ang huling desisyon ay nasa kanila. Ngayon ang hinihintay ko na lang ay apo, ‘yun lang, hanggang doon lang.”
Luis was recently asked about his proposal plans for Angel since they are celebrating their first anniversary after they rekindled their romance. Last year, they were both very vocal about their being certain that they would end up at the altar.
To this Vilma added, "My son is mature enough to decide for himself nasa sa kanya ‘yon kung ano ang gusto niya sa buhay niya. Pero kung magkatuluyan sila ni Angel definitely isa ako sa magiging maligaya.”
The premiere actress was also asked about the Kapamilya Deal or No Deal host’s recent statement where he bluntly said that he doesn’t want to work with his mother and his girlfriend.
If anything, Vilma says she understands where her son is coming from in that aspect. "Ayaw niya kasing maging komersyal ‘yung relationship that we have for the family. Ako bilang nanay niya at kay Angel tama lang ‘yon at nire-respeto ko ang desisyon niya," she said.
Meanwhile, Vilma expressed happiness over the fact that three of her celebrated films were turned into high definition format by the ABS-CBN Archives and Central Digital Labs for younger audiences to see. The three restored films of the award-winning actress include Anak by Rory Quintos, Kapag Langit Ang Humatol by Laurice Guillen, and Bata, Bata… Paano Ka Ginawa? by Chito Roño.
The said titles were chosen since they are said to exemplify Vilma’s artistic excellence and solid contribution to Philippine cinema.
