Miss World 2013 Megan Young has expressed happiness that her relationship with actor Mikael Daez is no longer a secret.
“Finally we don’t have to keep a secret anymore! Kahit na open secret naman talaga siya…. I’m happy. I feel lighter,” she said in an interview.
Daez recently admitted that they’ve been in a relationship for more than half a decade now.
“We’ve been together… wow, this is the first time! I’ve been with Megan Young for six years and first time kong inaamin ‘yan. Magugulat ang mga tao dahil hindi nila alam kung gaano katagal na kami. This is the first time I’m putting it on record,” he said.
[We’ve been together… wow, this is the first time! I’ve been with Megan Young for six years and this is the first time that I admit this. People will be surprised after finding out how long we have been together. This is the first time I’m putting it on record.]
Daez also explained why they chose not to admit they are in a relationship. He said he had an on-screen partner, Andrea Torres, while Young had been in ABS-CBN until she won Miss World 2013.
“I wanted to respect her space and at the same time, parang nasanay na tayo na hindi ko na sinasabi,” he added.
[I wanted to respect her space and at the same time, we just got used to that set up, that we are not disclosing anything.]
He, on the other hand, stressed that not admitting the real score between them was never a hindrance to show the world how happy they are together.
