They say that love is "lovelier" the second time around, and Meryll Soriano couldn't agree more.
In an interview with Bianca Gonzalez, the actress shared how happy she is with her rekindled love with Joem Bascon.
"Love is lovelier the second time around? Oo, hahaha! Kinilig, it's rekindled love, masaya siya," she admitted.
"I mean, hindi ko inakala. Ibibigay sa'yo ng tadhana kung ano ang para sa'yo. Winelcome ko nang bonggang-bongga. May mga bagay na di ka ma-explain sa mundong ito at sa buhay mo. When you're open and ready, darating din ang para sa'yo," she added.
Meryll also recalled her previous relationship with Joem before they broke up in 2010. According to her, she and Joem had different priorities back then.
"Eleven years ago, naranasan kong maalagaan ni Joem. Alam mo 'yung tugma naman kami, magkaiba lang ang gusto namin, mostly ako talaga," she said.
"Ngayon tugma na, siguro sa edad na rin. Ano ang gusto namin sa buhay? Gusto namin magkapamilya," she revealed.
The 38-year-old actress said that she is also aware of their "bashers," although she chooses not to mind them for the sake of her mental health.
"Wala akong time for it," she stressed. "Nag-aalaga ako ng baby, masaya ang buhay."
"Iniingatan natin na 'wag tayong magkaroon ng postpartum [depression]. Nagkaroon ako noon kay Eli," she revealed referring to her son with Bernard Palanca.
"Ngayon, mas alam ko na i-handle. Dedma na lang, 'di ko na ine-entertain. D'i mo na hahayaan makaapekto sa'yo," she enthused.
Rumors about Meryll and Joem getting back together first circulated in January 2020 after they were spotted celebrating New Year's Eve together.
The two then welcomed their first child whom they introduced on New Year's Day last January.
