In an interview with the ABS-CBN entertainment news team during Watsons Switch and Save press conference, actor and politician Edu Manzano shed a light on his son, Luis Manzano’s, past and present love life. The 61-year-old actor revealed that he and Jessy Mendiola, Luis’ girlfriend, are at the stage of getting to know each other. He said that he is happy with whatever would make his children happy.
“I see Jessy. We go out for occasions. Sometimes nag-di-dinner. Whatever makes my children happy. Yun siguro ang pinaka-importante. It’s not important what daddy wants. It’s what they want,” Edu said in a press con held in Makati City.
The actor also believes that his children are mature enough to handle controversies on their own. He makes sure that he will remain supportive but will not meddle with their life decisions.
“Hindi na ako nakikialam, kayang kaya na nila yun. Pinapatulan pa nga ni Luis di ba? (laughs) I mean they’re okay. I just wish social media was used for more positive things. Hindi lagi yung pagiging sa pag-ba-bash lang ng tao,” he added.
Edu also talked about his stance when it comes to Luis’ future married life. He claimed that he is not putting pressure on Luis regarding his wedding plans in the future.
“You know I never ask him and I will never do anything na maaring isipin na pini-pressure ko siya,” the Watsons ambassador said.
Furthermore, the actor also shared that he remains close to Angel Locsin despite her publicized break-up with Luis last year. Edu claimed he still calls the actress ‘anak’ despite what happened bitterly between her and Luis. Edu said that Angel’s love for her own parents touched his heart.
“Yes oo. May isang aspeto sa naging personalidad ni Angel na forever will remain etched in my mind, and this is how she takes care of her father. Her father, may kapansanan, but si Angel has always been there and I can feel it, parang nag-ba-bounce off yung feelings niya sa akin. Nararamdaman ko yun. I’m not saying I want my children to take care of me like that. But it’s always nice that children remember that they are still children, that they are products of somebody,” Edu shared.
Meanwhile, the actor claimed that he is already content with his current achievements in connection with his political career.
