Mikael Daez finally admitted that he and Megan Young are a couple after years of evading the issue
Although they have been constant figures in each other’s lives, as seen on their social media accounts, the two never really opened up about the real score between them until his interview with PEP.
"We've been together... wow, this is the first time!" he began
"I've been with Megan Young for six years and first time kong inaamin 'yan. Magugulat ang mga tao dahil hindi nila alam kung gaano katagal na kami,” he continued
Mikael shared that it was the first time that he’s putting everything on record, since they’ve opted to keep their romance under wraps for years.
"Ako, I wanted to respect her space and at the same time, parang nasanay na tayo na hindi ko na sinasabi," Mikael said.
Despite their non-admission, Mikael stressed that they’ve never established any limitation for each other.
“Wala lang, hindi na lang din namin inaano, and I guess, nasanay na rin kami," said Mikael.
In fact, Mikael said during the interview that they are very spontaneous that Megan had no idea that he would admit their relationship to the public.
"Hindi, hindi niya alam, pero parang game lang, okey lang siya run,” he said. “'Eto, magugulat na lang siya.”
Mikael agrees that a lot has happened in the last six years that they’ve been together including Megan’s big win on Miss World.
“Ang dami niyo ring tanong sa akin, 'Hindi ka ba nagseselos nang mag-Miss World siya.' Alam niyo, proud ako diyan. Sobrang proud ako riyan," he clarified.
But is it hard to “hide” their relationship for years?
“Tayu-tayo lang naman 'to. Ang liit lang ng circle natin and noong maging magkaibigan tayo, there was trust. Naiintindihan niyo kung saan kami nanggagaling,” he explained.
Mikael pointed out that the decision to keep their relationship lowkey was merely for work.
“Hindi naman bastusan ang dahilan. Hiningi ng network, hiningi ng negosyo,” he said.
He was quick to clarify though that even though they haven’t confirmed anything until now, they didn’t hide their relationship either.
"Hindi kailangang sabihin dahil sa work. But otherwise, when we're together, kung makita niyo kami sa daan, sa mall, sa beach—wala lang. 'Ahhh, sila pala,'" he ended"
