Pinoy Big Brother and Idol Philippines host Robi Domingo shared what pushed him to propose to his longtime girlfriend, Maiqui Pineda. He revealed in an interview with ABS-CBN News that he had been wanting to propose even before.
Robi added that the recent national elections played a huge role in his deciding factor.
“She gives me so much purpose and we have the same goals. We have the same ideologies, and I just can’t stop talking to her. I love conversing with her, especially with ideas," he said.
The 33-year-old host shared that his fiancée has kept him grounded ever since they started dating each other.
“Sometimes, I get to be distracted with certain luhos in the world and she would just hold me back and say this is the wants of the world [and] this is what we need and this is what you need to do. You are given a voice, use it wisely,” he added.
Maiqui shared the same sentiments with Robi. She revealed that she has already adjusted to the public life of her future husband.
"It helps that we have the same interests. I’m interested in his world and from the very start, we were very smart on how we’re gonna handle it, always to keep things private, some things public,” she said.
“You can't escape it. You really have to embrace it at some point that this is his life. It’s officially gonna be a part of my life forever. It’s not something to escape but to embrace,” she added.
The Kapamilya TV host also added that he had been praying to be the best partner for his fiancèe.
Robi admitted that he planned on proposing to Maiqui in New York but decided to do it Japan instead.
