In an interview with “Showbiz News Ngayon,” Younghusband said in detail how his deepening relationship with Locsin started.
“The first meeting of me and Angel, I met the family. I came to my own and it was nice. I got to meet her dad, her brothers and sisters and her friends and family. It was good. They made it easy for me,” he said.
Asked if he got nervous in their first meeting, the football player said: “Yes yes. I didnt know what to do. Hindi ko alam anong gagawin.”
Younghusband also said he was with Locsin during one of her charity events.
“I wanted to be with Angel in the day and she’s very, as Tito Boy says, one of the kindest people, nicest people you ever meet. What she does for charity is amazing and I wanted to be with her on that day,” he said.
Reports have it that Younghusband gave Locsin an expensive Givenchy Pandora messenger bag as a gift for the actress’ birthday. The bag allegedly costs P100,000.
Younghusband said he is not an expert in choosing gifts and that’s why he sought for his friends and family’s advice.
“Gusto ko yung material. Siyempre kailangan ko ng advice, hindi ako experienced sa picking presents. May advice from friends and family,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Azkals player said he will give his full support for Locsin’s upcoming film “In The Name of Love.”
“Sobrang happy ako kay Angel kasi sobrang masipag siya sobrang talented siya. She really deserves it. Congrats to Angel,” he said.
