MANILA – “Mahal ko siya at gusto ko siyang makasama.”

That was Angel Locsin’s answer when asked about her real feelings for former boyfriend Luis Manzano in an interview with “Buzz ng Bayan” on Sunday.

Locsin, who will play the lead role in the upcoming prime time series “The Legal Wife,” however, denied that she and Manzano are now back together as a couple.

“Kakausapin niya ‘yung daddy ko. Hindi ako nagtatago pero may mga bagay lang talaga na inaayos kami. As of now, we’re happy, nag-eenjoy kami sa isa’t-isa at siguro mas nagiging honest kami sa isa’t-isa. Sana maging maayos ‘yung pag-uusap,” she said.

Locsin also admitted that her family fully supports her decision to be with Manzano, especially her dad who maintains a regular communication with the “Minute to Win It” host.

“Napakaswerte ko sa pamilya ko kasi kahit anong desisyon ko, nirerespeto nila at naiintindihan nila. Si daddy, laging may communication kasi kay Luis ng hindi ko alam, kahit sa mga kapatid ko. Isa ‘yon sa mga naa-appreciate ko sa kanya kasi very consistent ‘yon. Kahit hindi kami nagkikita o nag-uusap pero ‘yung pakikisama sa mga taong nagging malapit din naman sa kanya noon, hindi naman niya pinabayaan,” said Locsin.

Locsin added that she fell in love with Manzano again because she saw that he has matured.

“Alam ko [na mahal ko siya] kasi nararamdaman ko. Nakita ko na nag-mature siya and nakita ko na nagbago siya for the better,” the actress said.
