MANILA, Philippines – Filipino-British football players Phil and James Younghusband said they are both very happy with their respective love lives.
James, who is 11 months older than Phil, is currently in a relationship with fashion designer Sari Lazaro.
“Yes, I’m in a relationship now,” he said on Monday’s episode of “Kris TV,” where he made a guest appearance with Phil.
James then described his girlfriend to the viewers of the morning talk show. “Sari’s done modeling before but she’s a fashion designer. She designs wedding entourages for clients. She just graduated from a school in central London.”
When quizzed by “Kris TV” host Kris Aquino on how they met, he said: “We actually met through my teammates’ girlfriends.”
James’ last girlfriend was Fiona Faulkner, who is also Filipino-British.
Phil on Angel: She’s the one
Phil, meanwhile, said he is certain that he wants to be with actress Angel Locsin for the rest of his life.
They officially became a couple last May 27, more than a year after their much-talked about Valentine date which started on Twitter.
“I’m proud to say she’s my girlfriend,” Phil said of the actress, adding, “I really feel that she’s the one.”
Phil also gave credit to his brother James for encouraging him to ask Locsin out via Twitter. “James said just go for it,” he said.
Asked if he gets jealous of people who admire Locsin, who has consistently topped the “sexiest women” list of men’s magazines, the football player said: “She’s very beautiful, she’s very sexy. She looks amazing. But I don’t get jealous. I’m proud, more than anything.”
