MANILA, Philippines – Television host and actress KC Concepcion said she and her French suitor Pierre Emmanuel Plassart got off to a good start from the very first time they met.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Wednesday, Concepcion said Plassart knows that she still wants to “pick up the pieces” after her break-up last year.
Concepcion further said Plassart is also serious and he knows “what he wants out of this.”
“Mayroon namang pinapakitang maganda na parang he's serious about what he wants out of this. Nakilala ko siya wala pa siyang kaalam-alam tungkol sa isa't isa. I didn't know who his family was. He didn't know kung ano ginagawa ko, kung saan ako galing, anong bansa ba ako galing so maganda ang umpisa. Wherever that takes us, ang sa akin maganda nag-umpisa,” she said.
But while Concepcion feels good about their growing closeness, she said she still needs time to make herself whole again.
“I do [feel good about this] but he knows that I want to pick up the pieces. Nandoon kasi ako sa time in my life kung saan I need to pick up the pieces. Ang daming nag-iba simula nung last year so I'm taking things one step at a time,” she explained.
The TV host, however, said it helps that her parents approve of Plassart.
“Opo naman. Of course, of course. And kay Mama, siya una nagpakilala actually. So mommy ko na lang nagpakilala sa amin,” she said.
“Sinasabi nga niya na favorite niya ‘yun. Pero ako naman wala naman dapat favorite favorite. Siyempre kapag humarap naman ang lalaki sa akin o sa pamilya ko, it means a lot to me,” she added.
Asked if she is not afraid to have a long-distance relationship considering that Plassart is French, Concepcion said: “I guess it's hard, you know, but at the same time if you really want it to work then it'll really happen.”
