In Sino Ang Maysala? Mea Culpa, Jay Manalo portrays Lucio, the husband of Ivana Alawi’s character Lolita. He is a quick tempered, very powerful and dangerous man who conducts illegal businesses. Lucio will soon face the consequences of his illicit activities as Fina (Jodi Sta. Maria) enters his and his family’s life, in her quest to find her missing daughter Joy (Iyannah Joyce Sumalpong).
But far from the fiendish role in the teleserye, Jay is actually a sweet, dedicated family man in real-life. He is a good actor who continues to exude excellence in his career, and behind him is a supportive and loving wife, Anna Raizza Austra-Manalo.
Anna, who Jay describes in his Instagram captions as the “one and only” love of his life, constantly believes in him and loves him unconditionally.
Jay believes that her being not in showbiz helped a lot in building a lasting relationship. Through the years of being together, Jay is amazed that Anna is able to withstand gossip and intrigues about him, particularly his past romances.
As we can see on Instagram, Jay and Anna would go on different kinds of dates and have quality bonding time with their four children despite their busy schedules.
What an inspiring couple indeed! Take a look at some of their sweetest photos right here in this gallery.
