While they have yet to confirm their status as an official couple, Younghusband admitted that his relationship with Locsin has become stronger.

“I want a future with Angel. That’s still the way I feel. And hopefully, I have a future with Angel. [Our] love is getting stronger. Everyday, I’m growing more and more in love with her,” Younghusband told

Asked if they have discussed plans to get married, Younghusband said he and Locsin are trying to pace their relationship well.

“Wedding plans are [too] soon. We’re taking it one step at a time. We’re not trying to rush anything. I’m very happy and when the time comes, we’ll see. But right now, we're very happy.”

Younghusband also said they continue to be supportive of each other’s careers.

“We’ve been very lucky and blessed. She won an award, I won an award. So I think we're good for each other. I also wish her congratulations. She has been there all the way.”

In March, Locsin bagged the Movie Actress of the Year award at the 28th Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Movies. In the same month, Younghusband won the Golden Boot award for the most number of goals scored in the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup tournament.
