In a Pilipino Star Ngayon report, the Kapamilya actor firmly said, “I do believe she’s the one na,” when asked about the possibility of settling down with the former Miss Universe during a virtual press conference of his upcoming teleserye Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin.
Sam added that they are not trying to rush things despite their 10-year age gap, given that Catriona has just started her career.
“My difference sa edad namin. Ako I’m 36, she is 26 and kaka-start pa lang ng career niya so ang early naman. But yes, I do believe she’s the one,” he said.
Sam first confirmed his relationship with the Fil-Australian beauty queen on his birthday last May.
The two first appeared in public as a couple via a music collaboration in July to benefit an online education program for the Tondo-based non-profit organization Young Focus.
The Kapamilya actor also reaffirmed his love for Catriona, saying that he’s ready to fight for her.
“Kung akin talaga, ipaglalaban ko. If it’s really mine, I will fight for it. I will fight for her,” said Sam.
Sam earlier vowed to protect Catriona following the controversies sparked by Clint Bondad, Catriona’s ex-boyfriend, through his cryptic Instagram stories.
Sam is set to star in the drama series alongside Jodi Sta. Maria, Iza Calzado and Maricel Soriano to be launched on Kapamilya Online Live.
