Jake Cuenca confirms relationship with Kylie Verzosa
MANILA, Philippines – Fans have just assumed Jake Cuenca and Kylie Verzosa's romantic relationship status only through the pair's many sweet Instagram posts together.
However, as of Friday, June 14, Jake Cuenca confirmed his relationship with Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa for the first time, revealing that the two have been "dating for 7 months."
According to a PEP.ph report, it was during a press conference for his upcoming film, KontrAdiksyon that the 31-year-old actor shared with the press his feelings towards Kylie.
‘If you ask me, I’m very open with what I feel. I do love her from the bottom of my heart. Mahal na mahal ko siya," Jake said.
“This is the happiest I’ve ever been. I’m happy I’ve met her in this time of my life."
He also mentioned how his current age has helped him become more mature when it comes to relationships. “At 31, mas disiplinado ako ngayon, mas mature ako, and I know na I can take care of her," he said.
The past two years he spent working on himself and his career had also helped him grow.
"Two years kong inaayos ang sarili ko, so two years akong nakapag-focus sa career, di ba? Ako kasi, nung sinabi ko na focused ako sa career, I meant it. I said I was gonna do theater. I was gonna study in the States. I was gonna do so many movies and so many TV shows – and I did," said Jake.
“Ngayon, parang two years later, I’m ready for a relationship. And that’s what I work for every day, I want to deserve her every day," he added.
When asked about marriage, Jake responded that Kylie would be the one. “Basta ako, mahal ko siya. Nandun ako sa hindi na rin ako bata. Kung ako lang papapiliin, yes, siya talaga," he said. (For me, I love her. I'm already at that stage where I'm not a child anymore. If I had to be the one to choose, yes, she's the one.)
“Si Kylie is such an amazing person. Nung una ko pa lang siyang makita noon sa Panday, parang crush ko na siya," Jake admitted when asked what he loved the most about his partner. (The first time I saw her on Panday, she was already my crush.)
"She’s such an amazing person inside and out. Yung pagiging beauty queen niya, hindi lang sa itsura, sa personality na rin," he added. (She isn't just a beauty queen on the outside – she's also a beauty queen on the inside.)
Jake and Kylie first worked together in the film Ang Panday back in 2017. They are currently co-stars on ABS-CBN's teleserye Los Bastardos. – Rappler.com
