Xyriel Manabat said that she is open to becoming the love team partner of Zaijian Jaranilla. 

In an interview on Magandang Buhay, Xyriel remarked, "Parang feeling ko po mabibigyan po namin ng justice if ever magiging ka-love team ko po si Kuya Zaijian."

She added, "Kuya ko po 'yon ha. Wala pong ano. Kuya ko po talaga 'yon. Para pong mabibigyan namin ng justice 'yung role."


Xyriel and Zaijian are former child stars of ABS-CBN and starred in several series together such as Noah, Ikaw ay Pag-Ibig, and May Bukas Pa. 

Having started in the industry at a young age, both stars are very close in real life. 

"Sobrang kuya ko po 'yan. Hindi pa po kami lumalabas sa TV sabay na po kami. Kasama po 'yung lola niya, [magkasama na kami] sa fashion show at auditions, mga ganyan. So talagang matagal na po kaming magkakilala. Sobrang na-establish na magkapatid po kami. Kapag pupunta sila rito or pupunta kami or kapag po mga overnight po ang taping, kami-kami ng mga family namin ang magkakasama sa room, tapos nagba-bonding po," Xyriel said in a previous in Magandang Buhay guest appearance in October 2020. 

Despite the fact that it is now rare for them to see each other, Xyriel said that they still remain close friends.

"Sa friendship po namin, kahit hindi po kami lagi magkausap or hindi po kami nagkikita talaga as in parang once in a blue moon na lang po, kapag nagkita naman po or kapag nag-usap, parang wala naman pong nangyari, wala pong nagbago," she shared.

"Tinanggihan niya. Nung nalaman ko nga po na siya ang kasama ko roon sabi ko, 'Sige G (go) na po 'yan.' Tapos tinanong ko po siya sabi niya hindi niya kaya dahil nga po delikado ngayon ang sitwasyon," Zaijian shared. 

Xyriel explained, "Mahirap pong mag-risk. Tapos sakitin pa po ako eh parang lock-in pa po 'yon. Mahirap po. Hindi pa po ako nakakalakbas ng subdivision."
