Longtime celebrity couple Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo are now engaged.
The couple shared the news of their engagement through a video post titled After All: Jennylyn & Dennis | Episode 1 that was posted on Jennylyn’s YouTube channel on Friday evening, October 29.
Dennis took over the video and said, “Gusto kong i-share sa inyo ang isa sa pinaka-mahalagang araw sa buhay namin ni Jen. At hindi niya alam na ito na pala ‘yun.”
Thinking that they were only shooting for a video about their “future selves,” Dennis went on to say, “Narating din natin, step by step, dahan dahan. Ito ‘yung mga araw sa buhay natin na magbabago na talaga. Papasok na tayo sa panibagong level. Panibagong stage. Gusto ko lang mag-thank you kasi pinili mo ako na samahan sa journey na ito.
“Iniisip mo siguro kung bakit ngayon lang nangyari. Hindi pa kasi ako ready noon pero siniguro ko muna na, talagang kapag nangyari ‘yun, ito na ‘yung best version ko,” Dennis said. By this time, Jennylyn started to tear up.
Dennis went on to thank Jennylyn for coming into his life. At one point, he said, “Ikaw lang ang gusto kong makasama. Ikaw at ‘yung bagong addition sa pamilya natin. Isa ‘yun sa mga pangarap ko. Matutupad lang ‘yung mga pangarap na ‘yun kung papayag kang pakasalan ako.” A door with “Marry Me” decor opened behind them and Dennis knelt before Jennylyn.
Dennis said, “Will you marry me?” to which Jennylyn replied, “Oo naman!” The two then shared a hug and a kiss.
Meanwhile, the couple also confirmed that they are expecting their first child together in an interview for a nightly news program.
Dennis has a child named Calix with former girlfriend, beauty queen Carlene Aguilar while Jennylyn has a son, Alex Jazz, with actor Patrick Garcia.
The couple has been together for more than seven years.
