Mikael Daez reveals he’s in 6-year relationship with Megan Young
Mikael Daez revealed that he was in a six-year relationship with Miss World 2013 Megan Young.
In a press conference for his upcoming drama series “Legally Blind,” which also stars Janine Gutierrez, the hunk actor made the disclosure about his long-running relationship with the actress-beauty queen, according to PEP.ph.
“We’ve been together…wow, this is the first time!” he told news outlets on Saturday. “I’ve been with Megan Young for six years and first time kong inaamin ‘yan (this is the first time I admit that).”
“Magugulat ang mga tao dahil hindi nila alam kung gaano katagal na kami (People will be shocked because they don’t know how long our relationship is)…This is the first time I’m putting it on record,” he added.
When asked why they chose to maintain a low-key relationship unlike other celebrity couples, Daez, 30, said, “Ako, I wanted to respect her space and at the same time, parang nasanay na tayo na hindi ko na sinasabi ([For] me, I wanted to respect her space and at the same time, I’m used to not divulging my relationships).”
Early in their romance, Young, 27, was preoccupied with her Miss World duties while he was in a love team with Andrea Torres. Young, a former ABS-CBN talent, moved to GMA in 2015 and is currently co-starring with Dingdong Dantes in “Alyas Robin Hood.”
Just like any other couple, Young does get jealous of Daez’s on-screen flings, specifically with Torres. He said: “Oo, siyempre. First love team ‘yun, e,” he said. “Actually yun, nag-usap kami noon [at] nagkaroon ng masinsinan kaming usapan tungkol kay Andrea at never na negative outcome ang pagseselos. Palagi naming napag-uusapan, and ako naman, if you get to know me, very open naman akong tao, e.”
(Yes, of course, that was my first love team. Actually, we talked about it and we had an intimate talk about Andrea and never did her jealousy have a negative outcome. We often talked about it, and on my side, if you get to know me, I’m a very open person.)
For them, wedding bells may ring in the future.
“Posible, posibleng mangyari yung ganoon (It can possibly happen),” Daez resonated. “Napaka-spontaneous kami. Baka kapag dinala ko siya to somewhere romantic, maramdaman ko na lang (We are both spontaneous. Maybe if I bring her to some romantic place, I might just feel [the urge to marry her]).” Gianna Francesca Catolico
