MANILA, Philippines – Daniel Matsunaga is happy in love, with new girlfriend Erich Gonzales (Daniel Matsunaga confirms he and Erich Gonzales are dating

In an interview with reporters at the press conference for the upcoming concert Dreamboys, Daniel said that Erich has the qualities that he likes in a girl.

(She’s beautiful and nice and she has all the qualities I like [in an woman].)

Daniel admitted that he and Erich did not expect say much about their relationship during the episode of Kapamilya Deal or No Deal, where he admitted they were together.

He also defended Erich from reports that she was too generous to a fault to his sister Vanessa and his mom.  

Lahat ng mga blind items na iyan super fake, hindi totoo. I don’t know where they are getting all these things…It’s not even coming from us,” he said. 

He also reacted to both the supporters and haters of their relationship.

“It’s just sad they are trying to keep us down but our relationship is very strong and God is the center so masaya kami (we’re happy).

As for the supporters: “I am very very happy that we have a lot of supporters, and for me I just look for the positive things, the comments.”

Last May, photos of Erich and Daniel acting sweet surfaced online. When a follower asked Daniel if he and Erich were dating, he said yes.
