MANILA, Philippines – Vina Morales on Monday said she is happy for younger sister Shaina Magdayao and her boyfriend, John Lloyd Cruz.
In a text message sent to ABS-CBN News, Morales said she is happy that Cruz, who is normally mum on his personal life, has finally admitted his relationship with Magdayao.
Morales said the “You Changed My Life” actor is a nice guy.
“I heard hindi naman siya vocal sa mga relationships niya. Nakikilala ko na rin sya unti unti kapag nakakasama namin siya sa family gatherings. Mabait sya. I'm happy for both of them,” Morales said.
In his exclusive interview with “The Buzz,” which was aired Sunday, Cruz has put all speculations to rest after admitting that Magdayao is his new girlfriend.
“Yes, it’s us,” Cruz briefly said when “The Buzz” host Boy Abunda asked him to confirm rumors that he and Magdayao are now going steady.
He said he decided to publicly admit his relationship in order to defend Magdayao from criticisms.
“Kasi ang nangyayari na noon parang naapektuhan na ‘yong reputation noong tao. She was being put in a bad light. Hindi naman ‘yon fair,” he said.
The actor quickly clarified that, contrary to rumors, he was not the reason behind Magdayao and John Prats’ break-up.
In the same interview, Cruz also disclosed that he had a “very special relationship” with Ruffa Gutierrez, but he did not elaborate.
When asked if his relationships with Gutierrez and Magdayao had “overlapped,” the actor answered in the negative.
“Nagkausap sila at nagkaayos na. So, tapos na,” he added.
