Actor-host Luis Manzano confirmed that he and actress Angel Locsin are back in each other's arms after breaking up three years ago. In an interview aired on Buzz ng Bayan on Sunday, the Minute To Win It host proudly announced that he is Angel's boyfriend.
"I’m proudly her boyfriend," Manzano said when host Boy Abunda asked about the status of his relationship with Locsin.
The couple's reconciliation made headlines last month after Locsin publicly admitted that she still has feelings for Manzano, her former boyfriend of two years, during a press conference for her then upcoming series, The Legal Wife.
In the Buzz ng Bayan interview, Manzano said that he and Locsin only started communicating again late last year after deliberately staying away from each other after the breakup due to "unresolved issues." He added that they started to exchange text messages after Christmas and admitted that he felt "a bit of the spark was rekindled."
"In fact, I don’t even think I got to greet her nung Christmas. Alam ko nabati ko ang family niya pero to send her a text, I can’t even remember if I did. Pero siguro days after Christmas, that was when we started texting each other again," Manzano said.
The game show host also clarified that Locsin has nothing to do with his breakup with former girlfriend actress Jennylyn Mercado, and neither was he a third party to Angel's breakup with footballer Phil Younghusband.
"Jen and I know the real reason why we broke up, our families know, our friends know, and we are definitely sure that it’s not Angel," Manzano explained.
When asked about speculations that they are already planning to get married soon, Manzano simply replied:
"This year, maybe not. In 2015, we’ll call you."
