The TV5 star happily reveals how her businessman boyfriend popped the question.
Who’s the lucky guy? Will Nadine Samonte be the next showbiz bride after Shamzey Supsup, who is marrying her Fil-Chinese boyfriend in December?
Excited to know more Nadine Samonte? Well, check out the story below!
In the latest celebrity update, the star of TV5’s upcoming series “The Gift” was wearing an engagement ring when she attended the new show’s story conference, so the answer could be “yes”.
In fact, Nadine admitted that her businessman-fiancé Richard Chua surprised her by presenting the ring last July, when he knelt before her, and asked, “Will you marry me?” while a video was recording the big occasion.
Richard chose Sofitel as the setting of his proposal and the scenery is the Manila Bay.
“May papanoorin kami – yung ‘Dirty Dancing’ sa CCP (Cultural Center of the Philippines) pero hindi ko alam na hindi natuloy. So nagpunta kami sa Sofitel for coffee. With us were my mom, brother ko and his mom. Nagkayayaan kaming lumabas kami sa pool area,” Nadine recalls.
To Nadine’s surprise, Richard took out a video camera and trained it on her. When she asked what it was all about, Richard told her he just wanted to take videos. It turns out he was only preparing this for the main even leading to the proposal by Manila Bay.
“Tinanong niya ako, ‘How much do you love me?’ so sabi ko ‘I love you so much!’ then he asked me to take a video of him. He asked me to ask him how much I love him. Ang sagot niya, ‘More than anything else in the world,” She explained.
And then, it happened. Nadine recounted how flustered Richard looked when he asked Nadine,” Pag may binigay ako sayo, may surprise ako.”
Without any warning, Richard dropped to his knwws and popped the question.
However, unlike any other girls, Nadine didn’t cry. She was even amused.
“Hindi ko maintindihan ang reaction ko. Natawa ako kasi yung singsing baligtad. It’s so funny! So sinasabi ko sa kanya, ‘Seryoso ka ba?” she said.
Since then, Nadine started wearing her engagement ring and never left her finger.
“Kailangan parati komg suot ito,” she said.
Apparently Nadine said one of her interview before that she doesn’t want to invest her time in the wrong man until Richard came along.
“We have the same taste – in movies and music. Magkaugali kami. I have this gut feel tha he’s the one,” she shared.
Meanwhile, the 12 years age gap between her and her 36 years old fiancé doesn’t scare Nadine a bit.
“He’s more mature, mas stable na. Ako ang baby,” she said.
