MANILA - Veteran actress and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos is throwing her full support behind the rekindled romance between her son, Luis Manzano, and actress Angel Locsin.
In an interview on ABS-CBN's "Tapatan Ni Tunying," the multi-awarded actress said she is overjoyed to see two back together.
"I know her and now that they're back together, maligaya sila sa isa't-isa, mas maligaya kami para sa kanila," she said.
Manzano announced that he and Locsin are officially back together during an episode of "Buzz Ng Bayan."
The two then made waves on the social networking sites during the final episode of the game show "Minute To Win It," wherein the couple exchanged words of endearment.
Asked on whether she likes Locsin for her son, Santos said that she thinks Locsin would be a great daughter-in-law, noting how selfless and respectful the actress is with her blind father.
"Isa siguro sa na-appreciate ko kay Angel na nakikita naman ng mga tao is matulungin. If there's anything na pwede niyang i-share, pwede maiabot, matulong, she's always there. And that's a good sign kung paano niya aalagaan, paano niya i-respeto, bigyan prioridad 'yung tatay niya na may diperensya. Importante iyun," said Santos.
Responding to wedding rumors regarding the couple, Santos chose to remain mum.
"Pag ready na sila? Basta ang alam ko lang masaya sila ngayon," she said.
Asked to rate Locsin on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest: "9. Pag kasal na sila, 10."
The “Tapatan ni Tunying” airs every Thursday (February 27) at 4:45 p.m. on ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold.
