He’s surely admired because of his unparalleled talent and comedic side as a host, which we’re able to currently witness through his funny antics and banters with the “sing-vestigators” in I Can See Your Voice. But more than just a well-loved host, Luis Manzano is specially adored by his family, such as by his one and only sister, Addie.
Addie currently works in New York, and has been featured in showbiz headlines earlier this year after her engagement to boyfriend Jared Glassman.
Addie and Luis may have different moms – Luis is their dad Edu Manzano’s son with former actress-turned-politician Vilma Santos-Recto, while Addie and younger brother Enzo are with former model Rina Samson – but never hindered them from developing a strong and lovely bond.
Just like what he did to his firstborn, Edu also prevented Addie from entering showbiz as finishing her education was top priority for her then. However, he only allowed her and Enzo to appear on “Minute To Win It” in 2013 during their Kuya Luis’ birthday episode, wherein they surprised him and gave him their heart-warming message that truly made him emotional.

“My relationship with my kuya is like really comfortable. Obviously, I’m his only sister, so he’s kind of really strict with me. Well, that’s what I kinda like about him, he disciplines me,” she said in the pre-game interview, and went on to thank him for everything that he has done for her and wish to bond with him more despite his busy schedule.
The 40-year-old host seemingly seconded it in his Magandang Buhay interview in 2017, wherein he recalled warning her friends during their Boracay trip that he would hunt them all down if ever something bad would happen to his sister.

And their parents’ proper upbringing and her Kuya’s overprotectiveness definitely pay off as Addie has indeed grown to become a fine, young woman. After not being allowed to step on the limelight, she became a model and ambassadress for various brands. She also got more exposed to television when she worked as a host for ABS-CBN sports series UPFRONT @ UAAP in 2016.
We may not know much about Addie, but what we’re sure of is she’s totally gorgeous. Go through her photos in this gallery!
