She continued, “Sabi niya, you like it? Then sabi ko, ‘Oh my gosh! E ‘di sinuot ko. Sabi n’ya, ‘teka, ako dapat ang magsusuot sa'yo niyan…’ Then, sabi niya, 'Will you marry me?' And then, that's it."
Although rumors of their engagement began surfacing when Pauleen was once seen wearing a ring on their noontime show Eat Bulaga, the speculation was further bolstered by her acting mentor Beverly Vergel's Instagram post.

How was she able to get Vic to settle down?
"I really don't know. I think it's really God. Prayers talaga. It works. And, you know what they say, God changes the hearts of people... I think, ang Panginoong Diyos lang po talaga ang nagbigay nito sa amin," she said.
Pauleen continued, "Kasi, he's had many relationships before pero with our relationship, it's very effortless. I think, kasi we've reached that point where we both know each other very well."
In fact, according to Pauleen they seldom fight "Because I think, ‘yung fact na alam na namin ‘yung makakapagpagalit sa isa't isa, iniiwasan na lang po namin."
