Beauty queen-actress Maxine Medina just got engaged.
Her boyfriend, diving instructor Timmy Llana, proposed to her as they celebrated Maxine's birthday in advance in Coron, Palawan. She will be turning 32 this coming May.
On Instagram, Maxine shared the wonderful news with her 854,000 followers as she posted photos of her boyfriend's surprise proposal and her huge engagement ring.
"Finally my forever," she said.
Among those who quickly congratulated Maxine on her engagement include her fellow beauty queens Katarina Rodriguez, Rachel Peters, Winwyn Marquez, Samantha Bernardo, MJ Lastimosa, Bianca Manalo, Miriam Quimbao, Ariella Arida, Nicole Cordoves, and Laura Lehman.
Maxine and her now-fiancé have been together for nearly four years.
The actress first admitted her relationship with Timmy in 2019. Previously on Magandang Buhay, Maxine shared that she and her boyfriend have known each other even before she represented the Philippines in the Miss Universe pageant back in 2016.
"Sabi nila kasi kapag sobrang friends kayo before... kasi he's been there for me for such a long time. Every time na may problem ako, magsasabi ako sa kanya, nakikinig lang siya. Tapos gusto ko ng alone time, tatawagan niya 'ko, 'Nasan ka? Kumusta ka?' Ganun siya," she said.
In her anniversary message for Timmy last June 2021, Maxine credited her boyfriend for helping her mature and become a better person.
"It's so crazy how time can go by and we can grow so much within a day. So proud of you and you have helped me mature and become a better person and a better partner each day. You have completed me in more ways than you could imagine babe! I love you!" she said.
