TV host and actor Edu Manzano and Actress Angel Locsin
MANILA - Actor Edu Manzano reacted to reports that his son, TV host Luis Manzano, and actress Angel Locsin are open to rekindling their relationship.
When asked for his thoughts about the news, the older Manzano said, "I think in our own little way, we all love our past loves."
"They actually touched your heart, eh. Minsan ang isang tao, kapag na-touch ang iyong puso, mananatili yan panghabang-buhay," he told ABS-CBN News on Friday.
The 58-year-old actor said he also does not blame Locsin for failing to contain her emotion when she confessed on Wedenesday that she is still in love with the younger Manzano, and that she is hoping for a reconciliation.
"Sometimes, may mga tao sa buhay mo na nagkakaroon ng matinding epekto sa iyo," the screen veteran said. "'Yun ay hinding-hindi mo, kahit may dumating pa na isang daang lalaki, hinding-hindi mo makakalimutan."
Manzano said he has taken a liking towards Locsin, as he admires the way the actress looks after her blind father.
"I like Angel. Nagustuhan ko 'yung kanyang personality and at the same time nagustuhan ko 'yung kung papaano niya alagaan ang kanyang ama. That drew me closer to her," he said.
Asked whether he thinks Locsin is a good match for his son, Manzano said, "Only they can tell. At the end of the day, it wasn't meant to go smoothly forever. There would be humps. Magkakaroon ng away-away. But it ends."
"If it's going to make them both happy, I really would like to see them happy. I love my children very very much. I try to remain to close to all of them and to their loved ones," he said.
