MANILA, Philippines–Singer Aiza Seguerra and girlfriend Liza Diño are now engaged.
“I’m so happy, I’m still floating,” said Diño.
Diño told Inquirer Entertainment that Seguerra proposed to her Friday in Quezon City.
“I am overjoyed,” Diño told the Inquirer. “I still can’t believe it.”
Diño related that Seguerra had set up the whole scenario. “I thought we were only acting together in a fund-raising play, ‘Kung Paano Maghiwalay,’ at the Teatro Hermogenes Ylagan in UP Diliman. We had rehearsals and all.”
Toward the end of one-night performance, Seguerra brought out a diamond-studded sapphire ring.
Diño was ecstatic. “It still hasn’t sunk in. We haven’t made plans yet regarding the wedding details.”
A former line cook at Spago in Hollywood and beauty titlist, Diño won best actress at the International Film Festival Manhattan for her work in Will Fredo’s indie film “Compound” in 2012.
Seguerra, who had her start in show biz as a child star in the noontime show “Eat Bulaga”, is one of the few openly gay women in local entertainment industry.
Their engagement dinner will be held Saturday night in Makati.
