MANILA -- Veteran comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas has confirmed her relationship with 20-year-old boyfriend Gerald Sibayan.
A report published on entertainment site PEP on Tuesday said delas Alas brought her boyfriend to the birthday party of director Wenn Deramas last Saturday.
"Hindi ko hinanap 'to talaga, hindi ko hinanap. Dumating na lang siya talaga sa buhay ko," delas Alas was quoted as saying.
The comedienne, however, refused to give details on how she met the former badminton player from De La Salle University.
Delas Alas shared that she has the support of her children.
"Mga anak ko naman, as long as happy ako, eh happy sila. ... Huwag lang niya akong anuhin, alam mo na yun," delas Alas said, a reference to her former husband Jed Salang, whom she accused of hitting her.
Delas Alas also vehemently denied that she and Sibayan are planning to get married.
"Ay, hindi! Waley, waley. Ayaw, ayaw. Okey na 'yung ganyan... tahimik lang kami. Okey na mas bata, kesa naman sa may asawa. O, di ba naninira ng pamilya!" she said.
"Ayaw ko nung matanda na may asawa. Pakikisamahan mo 'yung nanay ng anak. Ay, ano ba 'yan? Tapos ipagsa-shopping mo 'yung tatay. Isha-shopping mo din 'yung nanay. At least, yung ngayon, isang team lang. National pa, di ba? National at saka De La Salle... dalawang teams lang," added delas Alas, who clarified that Sibayan is no longer part of the national team.
