MANILA, Philippines – Veteran actor William Martinez, who is separated from wife actress Yayo Aguila, has found a new love.
Aguila herself made this confirmation on Tuesday during a press conference for ABS-CBN's upcoming teen series "Good Vibes," with Sam Concepcion and Enrique Gil as the lead stars.
"Natutuwa nga ako kasi may nag-aalaga sa kanya kasi hindi ko na nagagawa ‘yon. Sa amin kasi iba na ang relationship namin, para kaming magkaibigan kasi siyempre nandiyan ang mga bata pero okay ako doon," Aguila said.
The actress also shared that her children, like her, approve of the non-showbiz girl.
"Oo kasi mabait siya at talagang marunong siyang mag-alaga so okay ako sa kanya," she said.
The actress was quick to say that Martinez's new sweetheart is not the reason behind their separation.
"Kung kailan sila naging, hindi ko alam kasi hindi ko tinatanong si William doon. Pero hindi siya ang dahilan ng hiwalayan namin. ‘Yong sa amin ay matagal na, 2 o 3 years in the making," Aguila said.
The actress, for her part, is not closing her doors to new love although she is not in a hurry to find one.
"Ayokong maghanap ng boyfriend, sakit kaya sa ulo yan," said Aguila.
Aguila announced their separation last year. Despite the failure of their marriage, the 2 stars remain friends.
After stroke, William returns to work
Martinez is now working again after suffering stroke last year.
"Masaya kasi at least kami ang magkasama sa work niya after his stroke. Okay na siya, nakaka-deliver siya ng dialogue pero 'yong unang take medyo nahirapan siya. Nangangapa pa siya, naawa ako sa kanya kasi parang he felt bad,” Aguila shared.
“Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Okay lang ‘yon kasi siyempre nagkasakit ka at matagal na nagpahinga.’ Siyempre may konting deficit na siya sa left eye niya at sa speech niya," she added.
Aguila said Martinez was also able to shoot scenes for a fantasy TV series in a rival network along with Comedy King Dolphy. -Report by Reyma Buan-Deveza, abs-cbnNEWS.com
