MANILA, Philippines -- Actress Angel Aquino is now in a new romantic relationship, one year after breaking up with long-time boyfriend Lui Villaruz.
In an interview with morning show "KrisTV" on Monday, Aquino did not provide details about her new love but said the guy came into her life when she was least expecting it.
"Actually after my last relationship I've decided to concentrate on my family and my kids and I realized they are my life. They are the most important people in my life. So sabi ko, ito talaga ang pagtutuunan ko ng pansin. So, without even looking elsewhere it just came to me. Kung kailan hindi ko hinahanap, hindi ko hinihintay. When I didn't need it and I didn't want it, it just came to me and I think it was the perfect time kasi ngayon alam mo na okay ka na," Aquino said.
"This is the first time na matagal akong single, a year. Sabi ko sa sarili ko I will give myself at least one year. It happened dumating siya at the perfect time and when he did, wala ka ng hang-ups. Kasi totoo when you are single parent you don't need a man to raise kids with you basta buo ka at intact ka. Don't be too hard on yourself kasi you have to trust your kids to grow up with you. You will grow up together," she added.
Aquino has two daughters.
In February 2011, Aquino confirmed that she and Villaruz, who is five years her junior, have called it quits.
