Meirelles is a 24-year-old Brazilian beauty who is now in abroad to visit her parents.

"Sometimes kapag doon siya natutulog sa condo ko, she takes care of my things and all of that, okay naman mabait."

"No, she goes there, I mean hindi na naman siguro ako high school, she goes there she sleeps there I'm not gonna deny that but we are not living together," he said.

Estrada, who has kids with his former wife actress Janice de Belen is happy to share that Meirelles relationship with his children is almost perfect.
"She is really friends with my kids, that's why sobrang saya ko. Actually mas gusto nga yatang kasama siya ng anak ko kaysa sa akin tawag nila sa kanya ay 'ate' lang kasi bata pa si Priscilla, 24 lang siya."
Estrada said he is planning to meet Meirelles' parents next year.
Estrada is Cuneta's leading man on Star Cinema's "Caregiver" that will open in theaters nationwide this coming May 28, Wednesday.
