She may not hold a strong opinion over any of Luis Manzano's relationships. 

But Vilma Santos said that she particularly likes Jessy Mendiola for her son because of her humility. 

In an interview with Pep, Santos shared that she approves of the actress, describing her as "very nice" and as someone who doesn't feel the need to upstage her celebrity son. 

Comparing her with Manzano's famous ex-girlfriends, she said: "The one thing I noticed with Jessy ay hindi ko po nakikitaan na kinukumpetisyon si [Luis]. Parang, 'hindi ako star, I’m the girlfriend.'"

She added: "Siyempre, kahit naman ako, imbitahin mo, mayroon pa rin akong arteng Vilma, 'di ba, iyong artista. Pero kapag may dinner kami, wala eh. Hindi nakikipag-compete." 

Manzano and Mendiola have been a couple for more than year, and that two have repeatedly said in interviews that they would often talk to each other about settling down. 

In the same sit-down with Pep, Santos revealed that she has begun asking Manzano for a grandchild. 

Manzano is the host of ABS-CBN's newest game show, "I Can See Your Voice," which airs Saturdays and Sundays.
