Actress Maxene Magalona had the best Valentine’s Day celebration ever as her non-showbiz boyfriend of less than two years, Robby Mananquil, proposed to her.
Mananquil, son of Philippine Star Lifestyle Editor Millie Mananquil, got down on one knee and popped up the question to Maxene at the Tokyo Dome City Illumination “Luminous Tunnel” in Japan on February 14. Maxene eagerly said yes.
Maxene announced their engagement through a series of Instagram posts.
She captioned the first post with “Roses are red.” The second post was captioned with “Violets are Blue,” while the third post was captioned with “I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”
(“Roses are red, violets are blue, I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”)
Maxene and Rob started going steady on September 2015, according to PEP.
In an earlier interview, the actress daughter of the late master rapper Francis Magalona described her relationship with Rob as “the most meaningful yet.”
“He makes me happy and he makes me laugh. It’s the simplest yet most meaningful relationship I’ve ever been in,” Maxene said.
