Following the recent celebration of Luis Manzano's birthday, news of an engagement between him and girlfriend Jessy Mendiola grew stronger. Many speculated that his surprise dinner was a prelude to bigger plans ahead for them, as Jessy arranged for both sides of Luis' family to attend the gathering.
In an interview with PEP.ph, Jessy denied news of a proposal but remained positive about the state of their relationship. She said, "Hindi, hindi pa, pero ngayon lang, we're waiting for the perfect timing. [At] saka depende lang naman sa kanya 'yon, e. Ako, naghihintay lang ako."
When asked if she is ready to commit should Luis pop the question, she replied, "Ready? I feel that I am naman when that time comes. Pero right now, hangga't wala pa, e, push, push muna for myself. Alam niya 'yon, naghahanap lang siya ng tamang oras. In fairness naman to him, he's very sure about it. Yung assurance na ibinibigay niya sa akin, that's enough for me. Just have to wait for the right time… Isa nga 'yan sa insecurities ko, ready na siya; ako, okay sige, wait lang."
In the past, Luis has been very vocal about being ready to settle down but understands that Jessy would want to do more things in her career. Even if it remains unclear when they'd actually get engaged, Jessy remains sure about the fact that her boyfriend is really The One. She said, "Siyempre may mga preparations 'yan, e. Siguro kung engagement, a year after yung wedding. Parang gan'un. Pero kahit hindi man ngayon, bukas, or anytime soon, one thing is for sure—I'm sure na siya na."
