MANILA – Although his family has already accepted his new “identity,” BB Gandanghari said he knows for a fact that it will take some time for them to fully understand his situation, especially when it concerns his love life.

In an interview with entertainment site Pep, Gandanghari said in jest that his siblings seem to want him to be a nun.

“Yung lovelife, hindi. Mongha ang peg,” he said.

Gandanghari, however, maintained that he is currently not in a relationship.

“Wala, talagang wala. Kaya ko nasasabi yun, kasi if and when na dumating ang panahon na may gusto akong ipakilala, it’s not because na may gusto lang akong ipakilala. Siyempre, gusto kong makilala kung mabuting tao ba, but it’s still a work in progress,” he said.

But Gandanghari is certain that his family’s acceptance will come in time because he feels that they truly love him.

“I think [matatanggap nila], kasi what I’m experiencing from them is actually unconditional love. Dyusko, 'yun pa ba ang magiging rason para maging conditional?" he said.

Gandanghari shared his siblings, especially his brothers, actually treat him like the youngest in the family.

“May adjustment talaga, pero ang maganda naman dun, nagkakaroon ng bagong relasyon, nakikita ko,” he said. “Actually, kambal ko si Rustom, pero noong lumabas ako, 36 years after. Lumabas ako sa sinapupunan 36 years after."

For now, Gandanghari said he is happy with how his “transition” is going.
