Turns out that Ruffa Gutierrez was in the dark too about her brother Richard’s engagement to his long-time girlfriend Sarah Lahbati.
The couple revealed the happy news early this week. Richard proposed a few months during a romantic ski trip in Zermatt, Switzerland with sweet words and a large rock.
"I only found out recently, siguro mga one month ago,” the former beauty queen said in an interview with PEP.
"And lahat kami nagsisisigaw, lahat kami umiyak because it was unexpected.”
Ruffa continued, “We already know that they're together, pero hindi ko talaga akalain na nag-propose na pala si Chard sa Switzerland and apparently, it was a little secret that they had with my mom (Annabelle Rama) and dad (Eddie Gutierrez).”
"Only my mom and dad knew about it, so I think this is the best thing."
According to Ruffa, the bride-to-be and her future sister-in-law has agreed to let her throw a proper engagement party.
She shared, ”She said yes, party na hindi magulo, na very intimate, you know, with flowers. So, I'm here to help as a big sister."
