MANILA -- Earlier this month, Vilma Santos shared that she approves of Jessy Mendiola for her son Luis Manzano because of her humility.
"The one thing I noticed with Jessy ay hindi ko po nakikitaan na kinukumpetisyon si [Luis]. Parang, 'hindi ako star, I’m the girlfriend,'" Santos told Pep.
While Manzano admits he's ready to settle down, the 36-year-old host-actor said at the Star Magic Ball 2017 on Saturday that he wants to wait for Mendiola to fulfill her dreams first.
"Gusto kong matupad muna 'yong dreams ni Jessy bago 'yong dreams naming dalawa," he said.
Mendiola, on the other hand, told the press that she appreciates Manzano's patience. According to her, Manzano even said he would support her should she decide to take a break from showbiz.
Asked if she's ready to tie the knot with Manzano, she quipped: "Oo naman."
