MANILA, Philippines - For the first time, Ai Ai delas Alas' boyfriend Jed Salang agreed to speak about his relationship with the actress-comedienne.

In an interview on "KrisTV" hosted by delas Alas' friend Kris Aquino, Salang said that he first met the comedienne-actress in a bar in February 2011.

The actress said Salang is God's answer to her prayer to finally find the man for her.

"I prayed na ibigay siya sa akin ng effortless at tahimik," says delas Alas, who visited the Holy Land last year.

The actress, who has been through a lot of heartaches, said she just put her trust in God when she finally decided to open her heart again.

"Buong buhay ko sabi ko, I trust God. Noong nag-dasal ako sa Jerusalem, sabi ko kay God at kay Mama Mary 'kayo na po ang bahala sa amin ni Jed.' Until now I trust God na siya yung binigay for me," she said.

"Also sa buong buhay ko siya lang yung lalaking gusto ni Sophia. First, siya lang yung unang lalaki na unang naghatid at sumusundo sa akin, at yun ang rason kaya gusto siya ni Sophia. ... Kumbaga nakapasa siya sa mahihirap na maipasa sa buhay ko. I'm so blessed na first time na family ng boyfriend ko ay nakakasama ko at nakakasama ko at nakakasama ko sa bonding," she added.

On settling down

During the interview, delas Alas and Salang also shared their thoughts about getting married.

"Tungkol sa kasal yan, lagi naming pinag-uusapan ‘yan. Sabi ko ayokong madaliin ang lahat kasi naniniwala ako sa time, na darating ang time para sa amin, sa isa’t isa, na ibibigay ng Diyos ‘yung time na ‘yun para sa aming dalawa," said Salang, who has never married but has two children.

“Yun naman talaga ang dream ko, na ikasal ako. Na magkaroon ako ng pamilyang wagas. Wala akong kasalanan kay Lord, ‘di ba? Na malinis ako kasi kasal ako, yun ang gusto ko. So napag-usapan namin pero sabi nga in God's time,” delas Alas added.

For delas Alas, she hopes Salang would be the last man she would love in her life.

"Sinabi ko sa kanya yan, kunwari nagsasabi kami ng pag-iibigan namin sa text. Sabi ko sa kanya 'I pray to God that you will be the last man in my life.' Sabi ko sa kanya mamahalin ko siya habang nabubuhay ako hanggang mamatay ako," says delas Alas.

For Jed, he said that he will always love delas Alas even until their last day on earth.

“Gano’n din naman ako sa ‘yo babe eh. Alam mo naman ‘yun hindi ba? Sinasabi ko rin sa ‘yo ‘yun na… Not because na sinabi niya ‘yun sa akin, pero ‘yun din ang nararamdaman ko para sa ‘yo. Sabi ko pa nga sa kanya, ‘Babe, ’ Sinasabi niya kasi, ‘Mauuna ‘ko sa ‘yo.’ ‘Hindi babe, sabay tayo,’ sabi ko sa kanya,” he said.

Salang, who belongs to a well-off family, is a manager of his own car dealership.

To show support for his mother's new found love, delas Alas' eldest son Sancho also guested on KrisTV and expressed how happy they are for their mom's relationship with Salang.

"Opo, happy because bukod sa happy si Mama ay magkasundo kami, kasundo namin sila," Sancho said.
