Posting a photo of himself kneeling in front of Camille on Instagram, VJ wrote, “Once in a while right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale. Never did I imagine that the day will come that I will kneel down on one knee and ask you to be my wife. I have always dreamed of giving you something you will never forget. With God’s grace and His perfect timing, this is where we are today. I thank God for all the things that are happening to us right now. To my fiancee, you deserve nothing but goodness and happiness, I love you so much! Thank you to our family and friends who witnessed one of our milestones, thank you for all your love and support.”

 

 Camille happily reposted the photo of their special moment, saying, “A thousand times over, yes, yes, and YES!”

 She also shared a photo of her with Nathan, her son from her first marriage to Anthony Linsangan, who succumbed to nasopharyngeal cancer in 2011. “Today, this little boy and I got engaged,” she wrote. “I thank God for giving you to us mahal. Thaaaaank you my love for such a sweet surprise. Di ko to kinaya infairness. I love you my future husband.”

The actress, whom Filipino viewers have watched blossom from a promising child star to one of her generation’s most talented personalities, is currently a host on the GMA lifestyle talk show Mars with Suzi Entrata-Abrera on GMA Life TV.

It is certainly a love-filled February for Love Marie Ongpauco, more popularly known as Heart Evangelista.

 

On February 15, the day after the Startalk host’s birthday on Valentine’s Day, she will wed Philippine Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero at Balesin Island Club, a picturesque private resort off the Eastern coast of Luzon.

 

Chiz proposed to Heart with a heart-shaped heirloom ring in front of his family and their close friends in his hometown of Sorsogon in August last year.

 

The couple has since been busy with wedding preparations for a small, private ceremony taking place in Balesin followed by a bigger reception in Manila.

 

The blushing bride-to-be has been documenting their wedding journey on her Instagram account @iamhearte, counting down the days with the hashtags #144daystoahappyheart and #ChizHeart21515.

 

Heart’s gown at the Balesin ceremony will be created especially for her by Dubai-based designer Ezra Santos, while she will be wearing a dress from world-renowned designer Monique Lhuillier at the Manila reception and a Mark Bumgarner creation for the after party.

 

Her 15 bridesmaids consists of her closest friends from high school as well as those in show business, including Kapuso actresses Carla Abellana, Jennylyn Mercado, Lovi Poe, Solenn Heussaff and Alessandra de Rossi.

 

Their upcoming wedding is certainly the highlight of a very fruitful journey for Heart who has celebrated a lot of milestones in the past year including three successful solo art exhibits locally and abroad, but it is also just the beginning of the Kapuso star’s journey to “forever.”

 

As one of GMA Network’s brightest stars, Heart is a regular on the variety show Sunday All Stars and co-hosts Startalk, the longest-running showbiz-oriented talk show which air on GMA’s flagship international channel GMA Pinoy TV. She is also the host of Weddings TV, a show that offers wedding tips and ideas for brides-to-be on GMA Life TV, the second international channel of GMA Network.
