It's official! After days of speculations, it was confirmed by couple Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano on 'The Buzz' today, February 1, 2015, that they're already engaged to marry each other.
Producer-director Paul Soriano officially broke the news when asked by 'Buzz' host Kris Aquino about the rumored engagement. "It's been what, 7 years right? Toni has been a great part of my life. She's the best blessing I've ever received. I wanna spend my whole life with her. And you know, we're engaged!" Direk Paul happily shared to Kris.
There was no elaborate proposal, but I find it even more special 'coz Direk Paul did it at Toni's house, in front of her family. He proposed 12:30 AM of January 21, the day after Toni's 31st birthday.
And how did Alex Gonzaga, Toni's one and only sister, react on their engagement? Toni said it was hard for Alex to accept it at first 'coz they've been so attached to each other as sisters, but Direk Paul assured Alex and Toni's parents that he's not gonna take her away from the family, 'coz he is in fact joining them.
Alex admitted she's really feeling sad about it, when she shared a photo of the newly-engaged couple on Instagram. But knowing how deserving and suitable Paul is for Toni, she's already happy for them.
cathygonzaga: "finally i can share this to everyone!!!!!!!!! I will have a BROTHER!! I'm medyo saaad coz may kahati na ako sa ate but I can never think of anyone more deserving and suitable for my sister so I'm still really really happy! ate and brolo minutes after their proposal @celestinegonzaga @paulsoriano1017"
As shared by the couple, their wedding is already happening later this year, joining the list of celebrity couples who are getting married this 2015.
Congratulations Toni and Paul! You have just granted your fans' wish that you finally marry this 2015. And even without fans wishing, it's about time. He's 33, she's 31, and they've been in a relationship for more than 7 years already.
I remember Toni's movie with Piolo Pascual last year, the blockbuster 'Starting Over Again'. She had a happy ending there with no less than Direk Paul Soriano himself, who did a cameo in the movie. And it's happening in real life. Toni is about to have her happy ending as she enters a new phase in her life as soon-to-be Mrs. Soriano.
With almost 8 years as boyfriend-girlfriend, Direk Paul waited for the right time and never gave up. True love waits. They're inspiring every couple out there not to rush things and always put God in the center of their relationship. -
