Showbiz has been buzzing with news of the engagement of Marian Rivera and of Heart Evangelista.
Actor Dingdong Dantes already popped the question to his long-time girlfriend Marian in an intimate setting last 2012, but felt it necessary to do so again during Marian’s birthday celebration last August 9. “Sa tingin ko mas magiging espesyal siya ngayon dahil ngayon, kaharap mo na ang pamilya mo. At andito ang mga taong nagmamahal sa atin,” said Dingdong.
The classic Harry Winston Emerald-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring is actress Marian’s most prized piece of bling. Handpicked by her fiancé, this rectangular 2.13 carat diamond is set in platinum and adorned with tapered baguette side stones. In just a few months, this ring will be joined by a wedding band as the lovebirds exchange vows on December 30 at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Cubao, Quezon City.
Heart Evangelista also sports a similar rock after Chiz Escudero finally popped the question. In an intimate gathering of family and friends at the Escudero estate in Sorsogon, the two defied all those who questioned their relationship. Chiz’s annulment from ex-wife Christine Flores finally came through last month, the thing that held back Heart’s parents from supporting the couple’s relationship. In fact, Heart’s father sent a text message that proved their union had his blessing, which read: “Congratulations. Heard the news and I just wanted to wish you well. It seems like yesterday when you were just a little girl, now you’re all grown up, on your own and engaged. As a father, I wish you all the happiness, love and blessings in the world. Only you deserve the best. I love you very much. – Dad.”
Heart received a heart-shaped diamond ring, an Escudero family heirloom. Quino, Chiz’s son, delivered the ring as Chiz knelt in front his beloved.
