MANILA – Jake Cuenca refused to confirm the real score between him and Kylie Verzosa but he wasn’t shy in admitting how he truly feels for the beauty queen.
“I do love her. From the bottom of my heart, mahal na mahal ko siya,” he told reporters in an interview on Friday after the press conference for his upcoming movie “Kontradiksyon.”
Cuenca said this is the happiest that he’s ever been and he is glad to have met Verzosa at this point in his life.
“I am 31. I am more mature when it comes to relationships. Mas disiplinado ako ngayon. I know na I can take care of her. That’s what I work for every day. I want to deserve her every day,” he said.
Nonetheless, Cuenca stressed that if they were to admit to anything, he wants to do it when he’s with Verzosa.
“Like I said, if there’s any admission that’s gonna happen, I want to be there by her side too. Or I want us to be together when that happens,” he said.
When asked what he likes about Verzosa, Cuenca spoke at length in describing how amazing she is as a person.
“Nung una ko pa lang siya nakita sa ‘Panday’ crush ko na siya. But she was at a relationship at that time. Tapos I knew na baka magkatrabaho kami ulit. Nagkataon na partners kami sa ‘Los Bastardos.’ She’s an amazing person inside and out. Yung pagiging beauty queen niya, hindi lang sa itsura but as a person, she’s amazing,” he said.
Does he think Verzosa is already “the one” for him?
“Kung ako ang papapiliin, siya na talaga,” he said.
Although falling short of confirming their relationship, Cuenca revealed that they have been dating for about seven months.
