Xyriel Manabat has frankly declared, if given a chance. she would want Zaijian Jaranilla to be her love-team partner.

Xyriel initially just hinted about it when asked by host Melai Cantiveros during her recent guesting in Magandang Buhay about having a love team.

Xyriel said her dream love team was with an actor from another country.

Host Regine Velasquez asked, “Dito, sino yung feeling mo, naku-cute-an ka?”

Before giving the name away, Xyriel corrected she was not “naku-cute-an” but just as a screen partner because the guy in question is currently in a relationship.

Xyriel said, “Siguro po ano, hindi po naku-cute-an, yari po ako sa jowa!

“Pero parang feeling ko po mabibigyan po namin ng justice if ever maging ka-love team ko po si Kuya Zaijian.”

She then quickly clarified, “Kuya ko po iyon, ha!”

Host Jolina Magdangal remarked, “Huwag mo na tawaging kuya pag nila-love team kayo!”

On picking Zaijian as possible love-team partner, Xyriel said, “Mabibigyan po namin ng justice yung role.”


Xyriel and Zaijian both rose to fame as ABS-CBN’s child wonders.

Zaijian’s claim to fame was his Santino role in May Bukas Pa in 2009 while Xyriel was given a break in 2010 via Agua Bendita.

They also have worked in several projects, including Noah (2010), Ikaw Ay Pag-ibig (2011), Ikaw Lamang (2014), and Hawak Kamay (2014).

Zaijian currently appears in the Kapamilya prime-time series The Broken Marriage Vow.

Although Xyriel seems to have turned her back on showbiz, she appeared again on TV in an episode of ASAP Natin’ To.

She remains active on social media.
