Castillo said: “We started off as friends tapos naging partner in crime kita, best friend, tapos hindi mo talaga napigilan at ginawa mo akong boyfriend.

[We started off as friends then you became my partner in crime, best friend, and then you weren’t able to control yourself and you made me your boyfriend.]

Now I’d like to seal it. Will you marry me?”

Abad nodded in agreement and the cheers of their families and friends can be heard in the background.

Nice Print Photography and some of the couple’s families and friends who witnessed the romantic proposal shared several photos on Instagram.

Castillo and Abad have been together for two years.

According to an article written by Allan Sancon for Philippine Entertainment Portal July last year, when Abad was interviewed during “Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Awards”, she admitted that she is ready to settle down because she’s not getting any younger, so if Castillo proposes, she will definitely say ‘yes’.

As for Castillo, he said in jest that there’s no need for a proposal because a diamond ring is expensive so they’ll just get married right away.

In the same interview, the couple disclosed that they want to have an intimate wedding.

Abad was previously in a relationship with singer-actor Guji Lorenzana and “Parokya Ni Edgar” frontman Chito Miranda while Castillo was with actress Melissa Ricks for one year.
