Former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Patrick Sugui received a sweet message from his fiancée Aeriel Garcia on his 28th birthday on Wednesday, March 23.
In an Instagram post, Aeriel said that she could not be more excited to spend the rest of her life with Patrick, whom she also described as her "best friend."
"You deserve the greatest love in the world. Happy birthday! P.S. I love you very very very very much!!" she said.
In the comments section of her post, Patrick wrote: "Thank you my love! I love you."
It was in December 2020 when Patrick and Aeriel, who have been dating since 2018, announced that they got engaged.
Previously on the podcast Figure It Out, Patrick suggested that he and Aeriel have been living together even before they got engaged, as he explained what made him decide to finally propose to his girlfriend.
"Ang laking factor nung nagka-lockdown. Kasi we live together 'di ba? Some would say na mahirap 'yun, 'yung kayong dalawa lang every day lockdown, 'di kayo pwede lumabas. Sinasabi nila magkakasawaan kayo, mag-aaway kayo, 'yung ganun, pero never namin na-feel 'yun during the lockdown. We wake up, tatawanan agad kami. Never kami nagka-struggle," the actor shared.
"So 'yun na, 'yun na 'yung nag-push sa akin na okay na, tatanungin ko na. Gusto ko na talaga, ready na ako."
Shortly after they announced their engagement, the couple was treated to a surprise engagement party on a yacht by their closest friends.
The celebration included superstar couple Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, as well as actors Khalil Ramos, Marco Gumabao, Joe Vargas, and Ria Atayde.
