Rodjun Cruz, brother of actor-dancer Rayver Cruz, proposed to his longtime girlfriend, actress and TV anchor Dianne Medina on Tuesday, October 10, during a trip to Boracay.

WATCH: Ben Wintle proposes to Iza Calzado

Actress Iza Calzado and British entrepreneur Ben Wintle will tie the knot soon as the latter popped the question, “Will you marry me.”

In an Instagram video posted by Noel Ferrer, Calzado’s manager, Wintle knelt down on his knees and offered a ring to her girlfriend for five years.

Calzado was holding a bouquet of flowers while crying. She even bit the engagement ring to check if it’s real.

AND THE GREATEST OF ALL … IS LOVE. #IBIza

A post shared by Noel Ferrer (@iamnoelferrer) on

Ferrer also posted another video of Wintle telling Calzado that if she said no, he will strip.

“If she said no, all is lost. I will strip,” he said.

The former “A Love to Last” actress eventually said yes with one condition: he will take a shower every night.

Calzado and Wintle first met in 2011 at a magazine event.

According to the actress, Wintle approached her and asked if he could add her on Facebook.

“Tinawanan ko siya kasi ang daming mga fake accounts sa Facebook. So sabi ko, ‘you know what, let’s not complicate things. Just get my number.’ Ganun kasi naiirita ako pag madami pang games,” ABS-CBN News quoted her as saying.

Pinoy seafarer proposes wedding to his girlfriend at dry dock

 

If there’s one real-life love story that can epitomize Popeye and Olive Oyl’s romance, perhaps this Filipino love birds will suffice.

Seafarer Raineir Gonzales shared the video of his wedding proposal to his girlfriend, Krizia Marie Marcaida, who works as a nurse.

A video posted on the online blog Seaman Problems shows Gonzales surprising his girlfriend with a bouquet of flowers then gets down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage.

This took place at the Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore two years ago. The couple was married on January 16 last year.

When asked how he planned his proposal, Gonzales said: “Pinapunta ko po yung girlfriend ko sa Singapore para mag tour at sa barko namin siya mag stay. Wala po siyang idea na mag po-propose ako.”

And while most people are hesitant to believe that long distance relationships, especially with seafarers, do prosper, Gonzales shared that the key to a successful one is constant communication and trust.
