“It’s was on the sandy beaches of Puerto [Galera] on a sunny morning that I asked my best friend to spend the rest of her life with me,” he stated. “I am forever grateful God brought the most beautiful person into my life. I am so blessed to call her my everything. I love you princess.”
Garcia’s fans were quick to congratulate the couple. Her celebrity friends, including Yeng Constantino, Klarisse De Guzman and KZ Tandingan took to the comment section of Garcia’s post to express their happiness for their friend’s engagement. Garcia’s ex-boyfriend, singer Bugoy Drilon, also congratulated her and Eagle.
Drilon and Garcia had been together for three years before calling it quits in 2013. The two remained good friends.
Three years later, Garcia started dating Eagle. The two have been in a long-distance relationship. Eagle apparently is part of Drilon’s circle of friends, as stated by Liezel in an interview with Push in 2016.
Earlier this month, Eagle flew to the Philippines to finally meet Garcia face to face.
Both captured the moment in a photo they both shared with fans on Aug. 19. JB
