MANILA, Philippines -- One month into their "official" relationship, Azkals striker Phil Younghusband can't help but gush about being in love with his girlfriend, actress Angel Locsin.

"It's a great feeling, ang sarap ng feeling na official na together and in love. Sobra, we're so in love and it's such an amazing feeling," Younghusband told ABS-CBN News on Wednesday.
The couple, who made their year-long public romance official last May 27, started stirring public interest about their relationship when he asked her out for Valentine's Day on micro-blogging site Twitter in 2011.
Since then, Younghusband and Locsin openly expressed their admiration for each other, but refused to confirm their status as an official couple.
A month since they officially became a couple, Younghusband said any plans of celebrating their "monthsary" will be kept "secret."
Speaking with ABS-CBN News, the Azkals heartthrob also explained what had taken him and Locsin so long to be in an official relationship.
"Before gusto kong ma-perfect 'yung setting, ma-perfect 'yung situation tsaka 'yung location. It's timing, and it was a good time for us to be together and to be official," Younghusband said.
On popping the next big question to the award-winning actress, Younghusband said he is certain of wanting a future with Locsin, but added that the matter of when is still up in the air.
"Gusto ko ng future with Angel, and for me, I want it to happen, but we'll have to see when," he said.
