Moreover, she revealed why she immediately said yes when Centurion asked her hand for marriage.
“I suppose the time is right. This guy (at) centurion_rick wanted to make sure I wasn’t gonna go anywhere and with that he locked it down with a proposal? I absolutely said Y E S! C’mon why wouldn’t I want to spend the rest of my life with this guy? He’s already more than what I ask for? yes, I know some of you will say “but you’re too young!” “you haven’t graduated college yet!”
Nevertheless, although she’s now engaged, the Kapuso star gave an assurance to her fans that she and her fiance are not yet planning to tie the knot in the near future.
