It has been two weeks since Max Collins and Pancho Magno leveled up their four-year relationship.
The Encantadia actor finally popped the question to his girlfriend during their short vacation in Boracay last May 14, 2017.
On the same day, the couple shared the good news via their respective Instagram accounts.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last May 25, at the Revlon event held in Chaos, City of Dreams, Parañaque City, the bride-to-be recalled that special moment when her beau proposed.
Max narrated, "Nagpaalam muna siya sa lola ko, sa buong family ko. Alam na din ng mom ko.
"And nung nasa beach kami, sa Boracay, and then my mom said, sige, akyat na daw muna siya sa room niya.
"Sabi niya kay Pancho, 'Sige, go na, go na.'
"Tapos sabi niya [Pancho] sa akin, 'Dito muna tayo.' Kasi gusto ko na sana umakyat.
"Sabi niya, 'Nakapagpaalam na ako sa lahat, but I haven't asked you yet.'
"Lumuhod siya, and then, ayun na, iyakan, that’s it. I cried, he cried, we both cried."
DREAM WEDDING. Although she does not want to divulge any details about their wedding preparations, Max said that her dream wedding has to be in a garden.
The 24-year-old actress told PEP, "Dream wedding ko, garden talaga at saka maraming pagkain.
"That’s it, it’s very simple lang. Basta masarap yung pagkain, masaya na ako."
She added, "I'm not really maarte about it."
ENGAGEMENT RING. The bride-to-be flashed her simple-yet-elegant engagement ring.
According to Max, the ring has "19 diamonds including the one in the middle."
The couple is very ecstatic about their new relationship status.
Asked whether she expected Pancho to propose to her any time soon, Max said, "I guess, I always saw it coming because we’re very open about it to each other.
"It’s a big thing for us because we’re Christians,so it’s part of our path basically."
How did their engagement developed them as a couple?
Max answered, "I guess, we try not to make deal about our fights, because we know we’re gonna end up together anyway.
"So, kailangan magkaayos na kami.
"There isn’t a doubt na maghihiwalay na kami, parang ganun, mas solid na kami."
