Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano Are Finally Engaged!
Toni Gonzaga finally put an end to all speculations about her personal life today, Feb. 1, when she admitted that she’s engaged with long-time boyfriend Paul Soriano.
The Ultimate Multimedia Star was joined by her award-winning director fiancée on “The Buzz” to talk about the engagement.
“It’s been seven and a half years… She’s been such a great part of my life, the best blessing I’ve ever received. I wanna spend the rest of my life with her. We’re engaged!” said Direk Paul.
According to them, the engagement happened around 12:30 a.m. of January 21, after the birthday dinner for Toni, who turned 31 last January 20.
Paul recalled getting the blessing of Toni’s parents, Mommy Pinty and Daddy Bonoy, before coming up to their daughter to pop the question. It was a simple yet intimate moment, with Toni already in her pajamas as she was about to go to sleep. In an amusing side story, Toni shared that her sister Alex became very emotional the moment Direk Paul started his engagement speech.
The two will get married this year, with Toni’s “The Buzz” co-host Kris Aquino as one of the principal sponsors.
Towards the end of the interview, the box office queen gave an emotional message to Direk Paul:
“Nag-flashback lahat sa’kin from day one… I remember there are times when you would ask me, for the past seven years, Tin, I was never a priority in your life. It has always been God, your family, your work, and me… I’ve accepted that… Kaya ako I always pray to God, sabi ko, kung darating ‘yung time na mapagod na si Paul kasi hindi niya na kayang maghintay, sabi ko kayo na ang bahala. Pero he really stayed.
“He proved to me that true love waits… Kaya sabi ko, if I become his wife, hindi na siya number three priority. I will make sure na he will be my only priority, and everything else is secondary na lang. I’d like to thank him for enduring everything. Thank you very much for understanding, and for honoring my parents… Na-realize ko na ito ‘yung gusto kong maging ama ng mga magiging anak ko…”
Paul, meanwhile, is beyond thrilled that Toni said yes.
“You talk about me being patient but it’s all worth it,” he told his soon-to-be-wife. “We have the rest of our lives to do everything we couldn’t do. We have the rest of our lives to look forward to… And there’s so much impressing I wanna do. Thank you for saying yes.”
Direk Paul also assured that he will continue to support Toni in her career.
Prior to Toni and Paul’s joint interview, Toni clarified that she is not pregnant and that she did not have any misunderstanding with her mother.
