It's kinda been an open secret to most that Megan Young and Mikael Daez are in a long-term relationship with all their travels abroad and couple pics that make you totally go: 'Yeah, duh, these two are together.' But no one is really a hundred percent sure about it.
For celebs, it's a whole other level when there's actual public admission rather than just mere speculation. And Kapuso star Mikael finally made the announcement we were all waiting for.
Mikael admitted his six-year relationship with the beauty queen during a press conference for his new GMA soap Legally Blind. Mikael got candid with PEP.ph, saying:
"We've been together—Wow, this is the first time! I've been with Megan Young for six years and first time kong inaamin 'yan. Magugulat ang mga tao dahil hindi nila alam kung gaano katagal na kami. This is the first time I'm putting it on record."
Mikael also revealed that they chose not to disclose their status early on because Mikael was tied up in a love team (with Andrea Torres) while Megan just won Miss World 2013: "Ako, I wanted to respect her space, and at the same time parang nasanay na tayo na hindi ko na sinasabi."
He also said that even if they weren't open about it, they had to be honest with one another to make their relationship work:
"Kahit tinatago namin, kahit may mga issues, kahit hindi namin kailangang aminin na tuluy-tuloy pa rin kami dahil honest lang kami. Walang peke-an. Hindi kailangang sabihin dahil sa work. But otherwise, when we're together, kung makita niyo kami sa daan, sa mall, sa beach—wala lang. 'Ahhh, sila pala.'"
And even if Mikael finally admitted their status, he says he and Megan never really cared about labels in the first place—what matters to them is what they share and not any label given to them by the public:
"But I think, beyond all that, ang importante riyan, kung ano ang relationship naming dalawa. Kahit ano ang label na na isalpak mo sa amin, wala kaming pakialam, e. What matters is kung paano kami nagku-konek sa isa't isa."
