Angel and Phil: Couple With A Cause


MANILA, Philippines – Angel Locsin and Azkals player Phil Younghusband are not only bound by their love for one another, but by a common passion in helping other people as well.

Locsin has been in the front line of relief operations whenever a disaster strikes the country such as when typhoon Ondoy hit Manila in 2009 and when the Visayas area was struck by typhoon Sendong just last year.

Last week though, when a strong monsoon left the better part of Manila submerged in flood, Locsin didn’t have to help the typhoon-struck victims alone because she was not only assisted by her celeb friends Kris Aquino and Iza Calzado, but her sweetheart Younghusband also graciously lent a hand as well. Photos of their charity work during the relief operations have spread online.

Locsin explained, via an interview with PEP posted on Wednesday, “Ayun, wala talaga siyang choice kundi mag-pack din ng mga relief goods na ipamimigay namin sa mga nabaha.”

According to her, Younghusband was “very willing” to help when they went to the affected areas.

“Siya pa mismo ang nag-i-interview sa mga taong nandun… kung anong nangyari.

“Siya yung kumukamusta sa mga nabiktima ng baha—may ganun siyang malasakit sa mga tao,” she related.

Did the gesture intensify her feelings for him?

Locsin didn’t even bat an eyelash and responded with a smile, “Ah, hindi ko alam kung puwede pang dagdagan, mas lumevel-up pa, eh, ang pagmamahal ko sa kanya.”

Meanwhile, the Azkals heartthrob said in a separate PEP report that he helped others as he "wanna be there. I want to be responsible on that.”

He continued, “I’m really sad on what happened to them [flood victims] and I wanna help them with the simple things I’ve done.”

But that doesn’t mean that his girlfriend’s expression of love would go unnoticed as he said, “I’m very happy and I’m very lucky to have someone like Angel to be in love with me.

Recall that although they were seen several times together the past year, the two only made their relationship official to the public last May 27.
