In an exclusive interview with Maven Magazine in its June-July issue, Younghusband finally dished out the real score between him and actress Angel Locsin.

Though they may not have publicly admitted that they are officially a couple, Younghusband said Locsin is his “true happiness and true love.”

"For me, Angel is perfect. She has everything, beauty, brains and talent. But the most amazing thing about her is her heart. She wants to help out and she is genuine. She always wants to give back," he said.

“Everyday our love grows stronger and we become closer and closer . She’s not only the woman I love, but she is my best friend too,” he added.

Younghusband said he is grateful for Locsin because she’s been supportive of his personal and professional career.

“Angel is so supportive of me, and will give me advice or tips about things to help me improve both as a person and an athlete. In some of my matches in Taiwan, Singapore and Nepal, she’d be on the bench watching and cheering for moral support,” he said.

Asked how they spend quality time together, the football star said: “Sometimes we watch TV, have dinner or lunch together, go on dates, and other times, we just sit down and talk about how our day was.”

Younghusband also shared that he and Locsin sometimes take foreign trips together.

“Last year we had a fun time in Paris. Also last year, during her birthday, I was with her in Hong Kong. I can be myself when I’m around her and the connection is amazing. We make each other laugh and smile, and I’m always excited to see her,” he said.
