MANILA – Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero confirmed his intention to marry his girlfriend, actress Heart Evangelista, but added the time is not yet right since he is just “fixing some things.”

In an interview on the ABS-CBN show “Tapatan Ni Tunying,” Escudero said he wants to marry Evangelista as soon as possible.

The interview will be aired on ABS-CBN channel 2 at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 1.

“I really want to marry her. I’m just fixing some things and I hope to seal our relationship as soon as possible,” said Escudero, who is currently working on the church annulment of his marriage to estranged wife Christine Flores.

The senator went on to say that he cannot compare his relationship with Evangelista to anything else.

Escudero and Evangelista have been dating for two years now.

“I found what I’ve been looking for. So definitely I can’t compare my happiness to anything else. This is the first time I’ve felt this,” he said.

Last March, Escudero said he can imagine marrying Evangelista more than running for a higher position in 2016.

But he was quick to add that he has yet to propose to the actress, reacting to rumors that they are already engaged.
