So there’s a new showbiz couple we’re keeping tabs on–Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola.

After rumors about the pair hit headlines last month, Luis confirmed that he and Jessy are indeed ~*dating*~.

Now, Jessy has also opened up about her relationship with the Kapamilya host during a press conference after being hailed as FHM Philippines’ Sexiest Woman for 2016.

Speaking to PEP.ph, Jessy revealed that they’ve been long-time friends but only became close after the infamous airplane incident with Enrique Gil last year.

Ang tagal-tagal na niyan, dati pa. Pag nag-a-ASAP ako, lagi siyang nangangamusta. So, palagi kaming naglolokohan as friends. Siya yung tipong friend na ang tagal-tagal mong hindi nakikita, pero kapag nag-uusap kayo about life, ang dami ninyong napag-uusapan, nagka-catch up kayo…

Nangangamusta siya from time to time, kasi alam niya kung gaano ako ka-depressed nong mga panahong 'yun. Pero as a friend talaga.”

This closeness eventually led to Luis courting Jessy at around May this year. “So, siyempre, alam naman natin na how things turned out unexpectedly, so I guess, naging ganun na lang 'yun.”

Yup, as always, Life. Just. Happened.

Jessy was all praises for her new man: “Well, obviously he’s very mature. He’s a gentleman, such a gentleman, and very kind-hearted. Lahat ng nakakakilala kay Luis, [sinasabingsobrang bait niyang tao. Siya 'yung tipong lahat ng tao pagbubuksan niya ng pinto. At igi-greet niya from good morning, good afternoon, to good evening.”
