MANILA - The parents of actress-host Toni Gonzaga said they support the relationship of their daughter with director Paul Soriano.
In an interview with ABS-CBNnews.com, Crisanta and Carlito Gonzaga said they believe that Soriano is the right man for their daughter.
"Ako naman, sa dami ng nag-ano (ligaw) kay Toni, nakita ko kay Paul 'yung sincerity niya. Dati noong una ay hesitant kami. Pero sa tagal na rin nila ngayon, nakita ko naman na he is always there for Toni kahit na ano pa. At saka na-meet ko na 'yung parents niya at nag-iinvite siya kapag may event sa kanila. So maganda naman ang [relasyon] namin.
"So kung kami ang tatanungin ni Daddy, gusto na namin siya na siya na talaga ang mapangasawa ni Toni. We want him to be our son-in-law," Crisanta said.
Gonzaga's mother said she and her husband are ready if ever their daughter and Soriano decide to get married.
"Ako, [ready] anytime. We are prepared already. Sinabi namin sa kanila 'yon, 'sasabihin niyo lang kung gusto niyo na, kung prepared na kayo. Basta kung ready kayo, kami susuportahan namin kayo at nasa right age na kayo,'" said Crisanta, who admitted that she does not want her daughter to have kids at an old age.
"Mahirap naman 'yung matanda ka, mahirap manganak at mag-aalaga ka ng anak mo kung kailan matanda ka na. Ayaw ko naman na ganoon sila. Gusto ko 'yung makita ko sila na happy family sila," she added.
Soriano and Gonzaga have been a couple for seven years now.
Last July, Soriano hinted that he will propose to Gonzaga "very soon."
"She’s 30 in January so keep your cameras on, it’s happening very soon," he said.
