In an interview with Charlene Gonzales, the actor who’s so often rumored to be gay admitted that he had been in a relationship with KC since October 21, 2010. But it wasn’t an easy feat for Piolo (despite the good looks and all) because he courted KC for two long years before finally getting her to say yes.
Piolo apologized for keeping mum on the issue for so long and only talking about it now. Piolo explains, “The reason why I never admitted naman or never elaborated was because may pinoprotektahan ako. You know how it is, you have a son na hindi mo makasama, ayaw mong mapariwara yung bata ayaw mong magkaroon ng ibang reaction kasi bata ‘yon. He’s only 13 years old. But I think I’ve decided at this point na kung ano man magiging reaction ng anak ko from here, we just have to deal with it. And siguro para na rin matigil na ‘yong mga nagpaparinig kay Kristina.” And he immediately followed his last statement with a “joke!”
Charlene commented on how hard it is for someone as kind as KC to be put up in a situation like that (where they couldn’t let the relationship out in the open). To it, Piolo answered, “I found it too unfair because s’ya [KC] ‘yong laging nagsasalita so finally I told her a couple of days ago nung nag-usap kami [that] I guess it’s time for me to speak up, ikaw lagi nagsasalita and alam kong nahihirapa ka rin and bilang lalaki I guess it’s also a responsibility para naman she’s not left in the dark, hindi s’ya nahihirapan sumagot…”
But what’s the real reason why he decided to let the relationship come out in the open? Perhaps this statement from the heartthrob sums it all: “I wouldn’t wanna watch another interview para may magsabi na may crush sa kanya o gusto s’yang i-date. I just want it out, you know, I just want him to know na she’s taken.” And to that, a loud cheer from his fans in the audience was heard. Did Phil Younghusband’s vocal interest in wanting to date KC on Valentine’s Day got him to speak out?
He calls KC “My Princess” as a term of endearment. And this was what he had to say to her when Charlene asked him to give his princess a message: “More than anything, I’m just really thankful that she’s sticking it out with me. Her family, they’re also nice to me… Sobra-sobra-sobrang patience nya sa akin, sobra-sobrang understanding, sobra-sobrang pagmamahal ‘yong nararamdaman ko na masasabi ko ibang klase, ibang klaseng babae ‘to…”
So what do you think? Will Piolo’s telling the whole world about it stop the men from being vocal about their admiration for the beautiful megadaughter?
