After commissioning special portraits for his parents Edu Manzano and Vilma Santos birthdays last month, Luis Manzano shared why he chose to give them personalized gifts by artist Mark Rocha Padernal. “Wala lang. It was one of those days. I’m very, very lambing sa family ko. My dad is into art. My mom din naman ganun din. Pero ang ganda nung pagkakagawa kasi nung art eh and I’m a fan of his work. Sabi ko I want to immortalize a few moments with my family, with my mom and my dad,” he told PUSH during the Hope in A Star campaign launch.
Apart from being busy with his hosting career, Luis said his love life is also smooth sailing with girlfriend Jessy Mendiola with whom he is planning another trip with next month. “We’re more than okay. In fact right after this interview magkasama kami. We’ll be having maybe a quiet night together, baka kumain kami and we’re more than happy as usual. We might be going on another trip soon,” he said.
Luis said that this trip will be more special because it will also include their families. “Kasi my mom’s birthday is on November 3 so we might leave for a few days to spend time with my family and I think her family is coming also. So I’ll get to spend time with her family din. It’s not the first time naman. Pero oo nga noh, buong family niya andito kasi her dad is not based in the Philippines. Even her sister is not based in the Philippines so kumbaga, parehong mga pamilya namin ang dadating. Astig ah,” he shared.
