LOOK: Melissa Ricks gets engaged to BF in romantic proposal in Batangas
Melissa Ricks is now engaged!
The actress’s non-showbiz boyfriend Michael Macatangay got down on one knee in an intimate gathering in Batangas yesterday, Aug. 29.
Ricks’s friends, news anchor Gretchen Fullido and actress Empress Schuck, documented the memorable night on Instagram.
Fullido shared photos of her with Ricks showing off her ring, and Ricks being joined by her daughter Keira.
“The intimate surprise engagement happened in Batangas [and] witnessed by close family and friends,” Fullido said.
Schuck meanwhile took a video of the proposal which she shared on Instagram Stories. A backdrop with fairy lights and photos, petals on the ground and a walkway lined with candles made for a romantic scene.
The couple was visibly emotional, both of them wiping tears after Ricks said yes.
Ricks, who has proudly been sharing her journey as a single parent on social media and on her YouTube channel, called her boyfriend an “answered prayer” last November on Instagram as she greeted him on his birthday.
She said back then, “Thank you for showing me how love is supposed to be, for taking care of us and I [can’t] wait to see what the future holds.” JB
