“Yeah, that’s formal na that we’re together,,” said Manzano.
He also said that everything just fell into place between them, “Ang sabi nga namin we’re just waiting for the right moment. I’ve been happy naman all through out. Kumbaga it was [just a matter of] sealing the dealing. Of course, I’m very happy [when she said yes]. Sinasabi naman namin na dun din papunta. It’s only a matter of time, ang daming pinapangunahan pa nga kami.”
As a couple, nothing has changed said Manzano: “Honestly, walang pagkakaiba. It’s only a label. Sabi ko nga, kaya kami hindi nagmamadali. For any labels or for any commitment, how we were before is pretty much exactly the same way that we are right now. Ngayon lang may label na. I’m very happy. Napapansin ng ibang tao na medyo mas extra yung smiles ko. According to them, blooming nga daw ako.”
Last May, Manzano admitted that he and Mercado were dating after weeks of speculations and alleged sightings together in Boracay during the Holy Week.
