In an interview with entertainment website Pep.ph, Concepcion said he does not really ask KC Concepcion about matters of the heart but assured that he will always be behind her.
“Well, ang anak natin, kahit ano'ng pinagdadaanan niyan, kapag nasasaktan siya, nasasaktan tayo. Kapag masaya siya, masaya tayo,” he said.
KC is reporedly dating French filmmaker Emmanuel Plassart.
Asked if he already met Plassart, Concepcion said: “Baka 'yun ang nakilala ko noong isang beses.”
“Hindi naman ako matanong na, ‘What do you do? What do you do here? What’s your job? Are you serious with my daughter?’ Malay ko ba kung ano ang ginagawa nila, baka magkaibigan lang, ‘di ba? So, hindi ko na inaalam. Basta ang pagkakakilala lang sa akin, kaibigan," the actor said.
Concepcion said KC has not yet approached him to introduce her boyfriend.
“Wala, wala siyang sinasabi na, ‘Pa, this is my boyfriend.’ Wala namang sinasabing ganoon. At saka, hindi naman ako nagtatanong,” he said.
The actor also said he also doesn't mind if her daughter dates someone within or outside showbiz. “Basta ang importante, nagmamahalan sila and they are willing to make it work,” he said
For Concepcion, he will only talk to KC about her love life when she asks him for advice.
“Madalas na matanong si KC like, you know, ‘As a boy, Pa…’ Basically, kumukuha siya ng input. At madalas ko namang sinasabi, 'When you fall in love, you first fall in love with your heart. Use your mind also and, basically, follow your feelings, your instinct.' Sa buhay kasi, hindi naman puwedeng puro puso,” he said.
