MANILA – Piolo Pascual and Shaina Magdayao have reached an agreement to “preserve” their friendship. This admission comes in the midst of persistent rumors that the two are romantically linked.

Pascual revealed in an interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday that he is not in a position for a relationship, at the moment, due to his numerous responsibilities.

“Shaina and I are good friends eh, she’s friends with my family, I’m friends with hers. I guess mas pinipili lang po siguro namin na i-preserve ang friendship namin. Kasi parang it’s hard for us now kasi pareho kaming busy sa trabaho and siguro lalo na ako dahil hindi ko na mabibigyan ng oras if ever I’m in a relationship. I have a son, I have a career, I have my life. So, unfair,” he said.

“Sa 24 oras na meron ako sa isang araw hindi ko po kayang isiksik ‘yun sa isang araw. So I just have to be fair I guess,” he added.

He did, however, clarify that he is not turning his back for good on love, saying that he hopes to settle down sometime in the not-so-distant future. He also added that he “prefers” to eventually find a partner who is in her mid-20s, because he wants to have at least four kids.

“Preference lang naman po ‘yun. Kasi siyempre I want to be able to have more kids so one every year. And I come from a very big family, six kami, I’m the youngest. I want to enjoy them while I am young. I want them to enjoy each other while siguro their mom and I are away,” he said.

And when that time does come around, Pascual explained that his family will be his top priority, and that showbiz will have to take a backseat.

“The thing is, it’s hard to mix both. It’s hard to juggle both at the same time. If you get married and you have kids, mahirap nagtatrabaho ka tapos walang kasama sa bahay ‘yung asawa mo at ‘yung mga bata. I want to be able to prioritize that should it come to a point na kailangan ko na mag-settle,” he said.
