MANILA, Philippines – Actress Jennylyn Mercado revealed her boyfriend Luis Manzano is always behind her back, even when she agreed to pose for a sexy pictorial recently.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Mercado said Manzano is a very supportive partner and he is really protective of women in general.

“Si Luis naman very protective 'yan. May kapatid din yang babae, sa mommy niya sobrang protective din. Maalalahanin siya. Alaga sa mga babae, very caring,” she said. “Never kaming nag-away pagdating sa selos.”

Mercado also shared that she and Manzano seldom fight.

Mercado said she is fortunate that Manzano also knows the demanding nature of the entertainment industry.

“Alam mo naman artista din si Luis so nakakaintindi siya pagdating sa schedule. Usually mga kunwari nakatulog lang dahil sobrang pagod, hindi na makapag-text,” she said.

Asked if she and Manzano also plan to have a family of their own in the future, the actress said: “Bata pa naman ako. Madami pa akong kailangan ayusin sa buhay ko. Wala munang ganyan. Siyempre yung nanay ko, siya na lang mag isa. May edad na rin siya. Si Jaz masyado pa siyang bata, madami pa siyang hindi naiintindihan.”

While her relationship with Manzano continues to blossom, Mercado said she still hasn’t spoken to actor Patrick Garcia, the father of her child.

“Wala kaming nababalitaan recently. Hanggang ngayon hindi pa namin nalalaman kung ano rason. Hindi pa namin masabi... Iwas na lang muna ako sa mga issues kasi as long as hindi ko pa talaga alam ang rason, iwas na muna ako sa negative issues, negative vibes. Ayaw ko na magkaron ng friction at gulo,” she said.
