MANILA -- Actor Enchong Dee, who is turning 27 next month, is hoping to settle down in six years time.
In an interview on "Kris TV" on Tuesday, Dee, who is who is in a relationship with model Samantha Lewis, said he has been thinking about his future ever since he turned 25.
"Hindi naman sa ito na pero hindi na katulad sa relationship mo when you are younger na YOLO (you only live once), let's live day-by-day. Ngayon you really have to plan the future. Ako gusto ko na lalaki 'yung mga anak ko na parang may energy pa din ako na bata pa din ako kahit paano," Dee explained.
Dee, who opened up about his relationship with Lewis, on Monday's episode of "Kris TV," further shared stories about his girlfriend, including how they met.

The actor said he even surprised himself when he approached her at a fashion show.
"It was weird because I don't do that, I don't approach a certain girl," he said. "Sabi nga ng kapatid ko, yung mas bata, 'Kuya, you've got game pala.' Thinking out loud lang ako. 'Okay ito,' sabi ko. Tapos sabi ko, 'Hi, I'm ganito ganyan, can I have your Instagram account?' From there, everything is so fluid," Dee said.
"First time ko siya ma-meet doon, first time ko siya makilala, tapos dire-diretso 'yung unang text ko. 'I hope it doesn't sound so creepy but I'm Enchong. Ako 'yung nag-approach sa iyo last night.' Tapos (nagreply) agad-agad," he continued.
A week after their first meeting, they went out for a dinner and movie date. And a month later, they officially became a couple.
"She's so understanding. Minsan 'di mo maiiwasan. selosa ganyan pero naayos niya. Kunwari ako may hindi naiintindihan sa kanya ie-explain niya sa akin," Dee said.
Dee introduced Lewis to the public after six months when Lewis agreed to be his date at the 8th Star Magic Ball last year.
"First six months of our relationship, I don't talk about her. Hanggang sa naglalabasan na ('yung mga balita)," he said.
"Star Magic Ball, sabi ko, 'Will it be okay? Everyone is bringing their special someone, will you be my date?' Sabi niya okay."
