Actress Gretchen Barretto has shared her thoughts on her only daughter Dominique Cojuangco recently getting engaged to her boyfriend Michael Hearn.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, October 19, Gretchen wrote: "Who would have thought I will be planning my daughter's wedding at age 51?
"I don't know where and how to start (I never had one and never planned one ever). Tony has reminded me multiple times to allow our child to enjoy the process of planning."
In her post, the actress also referred to herself as "soon to be the mum in law" of her daughter's fiancé.
In the comments section of her post, Dominique wrote, along with a zany face and a flower emoji: "Omg your caption."
"I love you," she added.
Dominique is the only child of Gretchen and her partner, business tycoon Tonyboy Cojuangco.
She announced her engagement last Thursday, October 14, with photos of her massive diamond ring.
She tagged her fiancé, before writing in the caption: "For life."
Among those who expressed their happiness for Dominique was her aunt, actress and aspiring politician Claudine Barretto, who wrote: “Congratulations, my baby. So happy for you!”
Others were Sofia Andres, Ria Atayde, Isabelle Daza, Liz Uy, BJ Pascual, Raymond Gutierrez, Kiana Valenciano, Dominique Roque, and Iza Calzado.
Dominique, 26, is a fashion designer.
In early 2020, she graduated magna cum laude from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in California.
Before obtaining a degree in Associate of Arts degree in Merchandising and Marketing at FIDM, Dominique took up fashion design at Istituto Marangoni in London.
Aside from being a couple, Dominique and her fiancé are also business partners. Early this year, they put up The Collective, a skincare line that aims to "demystify skincare and beauty" to make them easily accessible to everyone.
