After Jessy Mendiola and Luis Manzano tied the knot, people can expect another wedding this 2021 – that of sweethearts Ellen Adarna and Derek Ramsay.
“We talked about it and wala pang final plans. But it’s this year,” Ellen told writer and entertainment columnist G3 San Diego on her YouTube show “Live With G3” on Monday, April 5.
She had never planned on getting married but said yes when Derek proposed during a gathering that she thought was just an advanced birthday party for her.
“I didn’t know that he was going to propose…I didn’t know na parang may surprise kasi they planned it so well,” she said.
To prepare for the proposal, Ramsey pretended to go to the neighbor’s house to play a console game because the air conditioner broke and people were “destroying stuff” at their house, Ellen said.
“So he was playing there for 30 minutes, nag-drama siya. And then I really didn’t know that something like that was happening. Hindi pa ako nag-ayos…Buti na lang talaga maganda ako,” she joked.
“I wanted her to feel that it was just a birthday party,” Derek said.
"I FORGOT TO SAY YES"
Ellen revealed that Derek proposed to her in the middle of a parlor game during a party with their family and friends.
She was so surprised and was distracted by the complex game which required her to run around the house that she almost forgot to answer the actor when he got down on one knee, she said.
“They showed this video pa of my friends and family so parang sunod-sunod yung surprise. And then after the video thingy, they asked me to play this game…So my mind was off it. Wala na akong time na mag isip-isip or mag-assume,” she said.
“When he asked me to marry him, I forgot that I was supposed to say yes. Parang automatic na akala ko na understood na ng lahat na yes na yun. Then his sister asked, ‘Huy what’s your answer?’ and then dun na ako sumagot.”
Ellen and Derek became engaged on March 30.
During the interview, they revealed that they became a couple on February 4, after Derek told Ellen he loved her, the actor said. Afterward, he threw up in the bathroom because he was so nervous.
“We were lying down beside each other, and I told her I loved her...it just happened,” he said. “And then we spoke and she said, ‘I love you too’.”
