MANILA, Philippines - Kapuso star Jennylyn Mercado was very happy to know that actor-host Luis Manzano stepped up and told the world last Saturday that they are "definitely dating."

In a statement sent by Mercado to ABS-CBN show "The Buzz" last Sunday, she said it was sweet of Manzano to declare his admiration for her on national television.

“I feel overwhelmed sa mga sinabi niya. He is really such a sweet guy for saying all those nice things about me," she said.

Mercado said Manzano has made her feel special for doing something other guys never did for her.

"He is actually the first guy na nagpa-interview to defend and praise me. He did what the others didn’t do, ipinagtanggol niya ako. And for that I am very thankful and lucky," she said.

“Luis is what you really call a true gentleman. Kahit sinong babae napakaswerte na maging kaibigan siya. Kasi lahat ng gusto ng babae meron siya. Gwapo, matangkad, edukado, ganda ng katawan (naks!) good sense of humor, intelligent, and most of all, he knows how to treat a lady," she added.

According to Mercado, she is lucky to have found the one who has made her smile again.

“Thanks Luis for the support and also for always making me laugh. You are the one that made me smile again. Thanks for that," she said. "Sa susunod na sparring natin ha, galingan mo na para ‘di na kita matalo.”
