On top of the massive success of her just-concluded series “The Legal Wife,” Angel Locsin is feeling lucky these days when it comes to her relationship with Luis Manzano.
Despite having little time to spend with Manzano due to their respective work schedules, Locsin is thankful that the TV host understands the demands of being an actress, with some taping days ending early in the morning.
“Napakaswerte ko talaga. Nagpapasalamat ako na gano’n ‘yung boyfriend ko, kasi hindi naman lahat nakakaintindi sa trabaho namin,” Locsin said. “Ang haba ng oras ng taping namin, tapos hindi kami nagkikita masyado. So napakaswerte ko lang na pinapahalagahan niya ‘yung trabaho na minamahal ko.”
“At naiintindihan niya din naman dahil same business naman kami, dahil gano’n din naman ang mommy at daddy niya, ‘di ba,” Locsin added, referring to Manzano’s parents, Vilma Santos and Edu Manzano.
Throughout the four-month run of “The Legal Wife,” Manzano has also been vocal of his support of the series, which aired its final episode last June 13.
“Napaka-supportive niya at proud na proud siya lalo na pag meron akong magagandang eksena na napakita, kaya napakaswerte ko talaga,” Locsin said.
Fresh from the success of “The Legal Wife,” Locsin is taking up another TV project, this time as an acting coach on “Promil Pre-School i-Shine Talent Camp 3,” which will premiere on June 28.
Already, Manzano has expressed his support for Locsin on the stint.
“Ang sarap ng pakiramdam pag proud sa ‘yo ang karelasyon mo. Gano’n ‘yung pinaparamdam niya sa akin, at ibabalik ko lang ‘yon sa kanya. Atsaka nakaka-proud din naman talaga siya,” Locsin said.
The couple got back together only recently after Locsin controversially confessed still having feelings for Manzano, months after their respective breakups from football player Phil Younghusband and actress Jennylyn Mercado.
Referring to the candid admission, which made headlines in January, Locsin said, “[Nandoon] ‘yung risk na babalik ka doon sa tao na pinakamahal mo, na pinakagrabeng pain din ‘yung naramdaman mo, at hindi mo alam kung ano ‘yung mangyayari, ‘yung hindi ka sure sa lahat ng bagay, pero [ginawa ko parin].”
“Proud ako, proud ako doon, kasi wala na akong what-if’s, ‘di ba? Wala na akong mga gano’n. At nagpapasalamat ako na naging ganoon ang desisyon ko, kasi hindi naman ako magiging gano’n kasaya kung hindi ko nagawa ‘yon,” she said. (MNS)
