Lovely Abella is now engaged to her boyfriend of almost five years, Benj Manalo.
The "Hello, Love, Goodbye" actress shared a clip of what went down during the marriage proposal last June 11. According to Lovely, she was led to believe that she was only about to make a cameo appearance on Benj's music video, along with her closest friends on-and-off showbiz.
"'Yung gulong-gulo ako sa pangyayari. Una, may ginagawa siyang music video at humingi siya ng favor sa akin mag-cameo. Sabi pa niya, in-invite niya mga friends ko. Naisip ko, tulong nga naman para ma-promote lalo 'yung music video niya. Pagdating ko kanina from embassy, lahat sila ang sabi 'Bakit ganyan suot mo? Para kang PTA teacher!'" she jested.
Lovely is still in Cloud 9 after what happened. She said, "Hindi ko alam. Hindi ko alam ang ganitong pakiramdam. 'Yung totoong wala akong alam, as in kahit kaunting kaba, wala talaga. Lagi niya kasing ginagawa sa akin ang magpasalamat tuwing may mga ganitong pagkakataon. Ang galing mo babe, Benj! Na-plano mo lahat ng wala akong nahahalata," she shared.
She continued, "Salamat sa pagmamahal, salamat sa lahat. Alam kong 'di ako perfect, pero [I'm] trying my best na maiparamdam sa'yo ang pagmamahal na deserve mo. I love you so much! Finally! 💍"
Congratulations, Lovely and Benj! ❤
