Aubrey Miles shared the story behind her engagement to Troy Montero.
In an interview on Magandang Buhay, Aubrey relayed that they actually did some ring fittings way back before the pandemic happened.
"Matagal na 'to, nung before pandemic pa nagsukatan na ng mga rings. Sabi ko, 'ano 'to?' Ako naman ganun ako, hindi siya makakapag-secret sa akin kaya parang feeling ko tinry niya talaga, kinausap niya itong jewelry shop na 'to. Sabi niya sukat-sukat lang, sabi ko, 'Sige sukat-sukat lang.' Pero matagal pa 'to. Hinold nila ito during pandemic," she said.
Aubrey relayed that she was told that the ring fittings were for their wedding band. The actress shared that she actually said to Troy that it's okay if there will be no proposal and they will immediately proceed with the wedding.
"Sabi ko sa kanya, 'Sa tagal na natin, gusto ko derecho na.' Okay lang naman sa akin, hindi naman ako nagde-demand na kailangan propose mo muna... May mga anak na kami, okay na naman ako. Tapos sabi niya, 'Sige sige just for the wedding band.' Tapos pala naka-hold na pala for two years, before the pandemic. Pero nafe-feel ko may mga attempt siya [to propose]. May mga tanong tanong na siya na gusto mo mag-vacation ng mga two days," she said.
Aubrey relayed that the proposal happened while they were riding a glass kayak during their vacation in Boracay.
"Nasa likod siya [sabi niya], 'I have something for you.' Tapos may kinuha siyang box tapos sabi niya, 'Look,' tapos pagbukas niya, sabi ko, 'Oh my god it's so big.' Sabi niya, 'Oh do you like it?' Ang tanong niya, 'Will you be my forever?' Sabi ko, ako naman sabi ko, 'Thank you,' una kong sinabi. [Then], 'Of course yes.' Tawa siya ng tawa... Tapos 'yun na, sinuot ko na," she relayed.
Aubrey was also asked about her kids’ reaction upon learning that she and Troy are now engaged.
"Nung sinabi ko 'yun sabi nila, 'Finally.' Parang pinagalitan pa ako. Na-feel din kasi nila before sa akin kasi kasal, for me lang naman ito. Sabi ko almost two decades na kaming being together, sabi ko okay lang sa akin na wedding band," she stated.
"Pero alam mo, akala ko sabi ko it's okay hindi naman importante ang proposal okay lang 'yan, pero iba 'yung feeling pala. Hindi kasi ako makilig-kilig person eh. Tapos 'yung feeling after, feeling mo girl na girl ka, di ba?" she confessed.
About the date of their wedding, Aubrey shared, "Ngayon we're trying this year or first month of 'yung mid-next year, ganun."
