Walang balak si Phil Younghusband ng Philippine Azkals team na tumanggap ng kahit anong project na may kaugnayan sa showbiz.
Ito ang kanyang naging pahayag sa PUSH nang mainterbyu namin siya pagkatapos ng special screening ng documentary na Journeyman Finds Home: The Simone Rota Story na istorya ng isa pang Azkals player na si Simone Rota.
Kasama ni Phil na nanood ng docu film sa Uptown Mall Cinema sa Taguig ang iba pang kasamahan sa Azkals team.
“I’m an athlete and that’s more for me and I’m happy being just an athlete. Right now I’m thinking about playing for Davao Aguilas and the Azkals and that’s what I’m thinking about right now,” pagdidiin ni Phil.
Pero bukod sa paglalaro sa Philippine national football team ay excited ding ibinahagi ni Phil ang tungkol sa nalalapit niyang pagpapakasal sa kayang fiancée.
“I’m engaged and we are still in the planning stages of the wedding. I’m very excited for that new chapter in my life and very happy. Professionally I feel I’ve had a good career and for me the next level of happiness is building a family with my fiancée,” kuwento niya.
Hindi naman sure ni Phil kung this year ito mangyayari dahil naghahanap pa raw sila ng magandang venue.
“We’re still looking right now because it depends on the venue, it depends on everything… depends on the schedule of the national team, so we are still planning.”
Kahit maging family man si Phil na ay sinigurado ni Phil na maglalaro pa rin siya para sa football team.
“Yes, of course. I’m happy playing for the team,” reaksyon niya.
Kung siya ang masusunod, ilang kids ba ang gusto niyang maging anak?
“I’d like three or four. I like twins, twins would make me happy, hehehe!” pag-amin ni Phil na natatawa.
Anong klaseng wedding ba ang gusto nila?
“My fiancée is catholic so we’d like a church wedding,” sagot niya.
Very hands-on daw ang kanyang future wife sa pag-aasikaso ng kanilang kasal.
Aniya, “I’m trying to be as hands on as possible. But my fiancée is more hands-on. She’s doing the research and she seeks advice from others.”
Hinayaan din daw niya ang kasintahan na magdesisyon pero kapag may gusto siyang idagdag ay sinasabi niya ito sa kanyang fiancée.
“If I see something, then I’ll let her know. So, I’m trying to be as hands on as possible but I think my fiancé is more hands on,” kuwento pa niya.
Eh, saan ba naman nila balak mag-honeymoon?
“There’s lot of different places we’d like to visit and usually, every Christmas when we visit England, we pick another destination in Europe. But I think with the honeymoon, we’d like it in most extravagant, like maybe somewhere, or a beach destination,” pagbabahagi pa niya.
Phil’s fiancée is a Filipino-Spanish model named Margaret Hall.
