Last February 6, actress Dionne Monsanto got engaged to Fil-Swiss businessman Ryan Stalder in Switzerland. The former Pinoy Big Brother housemate broke the news on social media after flying to Europe last month.
On her Instagram account, Dionne posted a photo of them wearing matching robes and enjoying the snowy weather in the scenic city of Kanderstag in Switzerland where her non-showbiz fiancé is based.
She wrote, “I said, “Yes! Why’d you take so long?”
“Ryan & I have known each other since my PBB season in 2007. Yet we only started dating in 2018—11 years of knowing each other. Grateful that we were friends first and that we’ve seen each other grow. There’s no foundation better than friendship. Grateful that the universe gave me the kindest man ever. Here’s to forever + 49 years, my love @nayr_redlats “
Dionne met Ryan through her fellow PBB alumni Mickey Perz who is also Fil-Swiss and is Ryan’s childhood best friend. The couple have been dating since 2018. Ryan also owns a resort and restaurant in Siargao island.
