The It’s Showtime host revealed that when he proposed to Coleen Garcia, her dad Jose Garcia wasn’t able to hold back his tears.
Billy Crawford happily shared how he prepared for his marriage proposal to his longtime girlfriend Coleen Garcia on Tonight with Boy Abunda.
“Actually sinabi ko kasi Noche Buena eh, nung nando’n na kami sa party in-explain ko sa kanya na… sabi niya ‘Bakit nandito si Gino (Reyes)? Bakit ang daming tao?’ nagku-kwestyon na siya sabi ko, ‘Di, para masaya it’s Christmas time so kailangan may kasama tayong mga tao’,” he said.
He then shared that he was also moved when Jose Garcia, Coleen’s dad wasn’t able to hold back his tears.
“Nagpa-setup ako ng AVP sa labas hawak-hawak ko siya tapos pinapanood niya tapos ‘yun at the end, ‘Will you allow me to keep my promise forever?’ Umiyak, umiyak siya pero mas maganda ‘yung reaction ng tatay niya eh, umiyak ‘yung tatay, hindi pa rin maka-get over.”
Billy admitted that he’s still on cloud nine after his proposal. He then shared that he initially planned to propose in Spain this holiday but opted to do it here because he felt that it’s more special if the people who were part of their relationship were able to witness the special night.
He also revealed that he already bought Coleen’s engagement ring 19 months ago.
“Nung binili ko na ‘yung singsing na ‘yun, obviously sa’kin alam ko na siya na talaga papakasalan ko. Pero there are a lot of things that are going on sa buhay namin na kailangan namin unti-untiin i-prioritize.”
When asked about the date of their wedding, he said, “It shouldn’t be anytime soon meron din naman kaming obligations na we have to take care of, we have to work and we want a bright future.”
Billy and Coleen were officially engaged on December 20.
