Marian and Dingdong are engaged!
Actor Dingdong Dantes has popped the question to his girlfriend, actress Marian Rivera, live on TV during her dance show on Saturday, ending years-long of waiting by their family, friends and fans who’ve all been wanting for the two to tie the knot.
On his knees, while holding Rivera’s hand and looking into her face, Dantes said, “May isang bagay na malinaw sa’kin, is that I wanna spend the rest of my life with you. Kaya ngayon, saksi ang mga mahal natin sa buhay, gusto kong ipagsigawan sa buong mundo, na ikaw ang sagot sa aking mga dasal.”
He then brought out the engagement ring and said, “That’s why tonight, I offer you this gift, on your birthday, something that’s beyond any material thing or tangible one, but I offer you myself, my love, today and all the days of my life.
“Please, Marian, will you be my wife?”
Marian could only whisper “I love you” to Dingdong off mic, and they embraced to the audience’s loud cheers.
He then turned to the audience and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present to you my fiancee.”
The two danced onstage for a few minutes.
Later, Marian and Dingdong were greeted by some of their family members, with Dingdong’s mother telling Marian, “Welcome to our family.”
Before the show ended, Marian promised to love and take care of Dingdong for the rest of their life. He asked her, “Is that a yes?” to which she replied, “Yes!”
The two have yet to reveal the date of their wedding and other details as of writing.
