MANILA, Philippines – After being together for more than three years now, actor Dingdong Dantes admitted he is hoping to settle down with girlfriend Marian Rivera “very soon.”

Actor Dingdong Dantes talks about his relationship with actress Marian Rivera.

In an interview with “KrisTV” on Monday, Dantes said he has not yet asked for Rivera’s hand for marriage but it is his dream for them to get married.

“Siyempre it is my dream to have that very soon. There’s a proper time for that and I’m hoping na makarating na tayo very soon. Wala pang pamamanhikan,” he said.

Dantes, who is busy promoting his upcoming movie "One More Try" for Star Cinema, said they are just enjoying their time together since their respective work schedules are equally hectic.

“Malaking bagay sa amin 'yung short trips. Minsan nga kahit 'yung sa eroplano lang, masaya na ako doon eh,” he said.

Just recently, their relationship was plagued with rumors after the actor got linked to TV host-actress Isabelle Daza.

Dantes, however, assured everyone that his relationship with Rivera has only gotten stronger.

"In fact, we've never been this happy. Confident naman kami sa relationship namin, that we're stronger now than we were before," he said.

Apart from Dantes, "One More Try" also stars Angel Locsin, Angelica Panganiban and Zanjoe Marudo. An entry to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival, the movie opens in theaters nationwide on Christmas Day.
