“No frills, just truth and real love. And she said yes.”
This was how Christian Bautista, 36, described his marriage proposal to non-showbiz girlfriend Kat Ramnani, 33.
The Kapuso singer-actor gave this statement to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) following his announcement that he and Kat are already engaged.
Just like how they kept their relationship low-key, Christian went on to say that he popped the question to Kat privately during the latter part of their vacation in Europe.
“I thought I wanted a picturesque spot to propose—the cliffs of Santorini? The sites of Athens? The beautiful canals of Venice? The city of Florence or Milan?
“It didn't feel right to do it in such a public place.
“So when we were back in the hotel, eating cold pizza when it was just us, that's where I asked her.”
PEP.ph exchanged text messages with Christian through his talent manager Carlo Orosa last night, November 3.
Christian and Kat are set to celebrate their second anniversary as a couple on November 21.
Kat is a part-time model and head content for music in a telecommunications company.
The couple met during a breakout game where players are tasked to follow clues and solve puzzles under time pressure in order to get out of a closed room.
In a July 2016 interview, Christian told PEP.ph that his parents approve of his girlfriend Kat.
"She’s very fun to be with, she’s smart, she loves sports—our family loves sports.”
