Wilma Doesnt Parin? Engagement of Doesnt to non-showbiz BF rouses witty greetings
Actress Wilma Doesnt is now engaged to her non-showbiz partner Gerick Parin, and netizens could not help but notice that the comedienne will be “consistent” with her name once she gets married.
Doesnt received the “best birthday gift ever” after Parin proposed to her on her special day last Saturday, July 10. She gushed over her engagement as she showed a video of her fiance popping the question, through her Instagram page on the same day.
The actress appeared to be hosting an event at a resort when Parin came up to her and showed her the engagement ring, bringing her to tears before she could say yes to his proposal.
“The best birthday gift ever! Happy birthday to me!” she declared as she told others to “trust the process” and not to dwell too much on mistakes from the past.
“Forgive yourself, respect and love yourself above all. Para mahanap ka ng taong nakatakda para sa’yo,” she added. (Forgive yourself, respect and love yourself above all. So you can find the person who is meant for you.)

Doesnt’s engagement drew laughs from netizens on Twitter as they made witty remarks and puns about her surname. They pointed out that the actress’ name could change to Wilma Doesnt Parin, which translates to “still Wilma Doesnt,” after she gets married.
“Last name ng magiging husband ni Wilma Doesnt ay Parin. So siya na si Wilma Doesnt Parin. We love a consistent queen,” one @jaicabajar said.

Meanwhile, one @BelamiLukas said fate may be “playing” with Doesnt, as she will not be called “Wilma Does.”
“Pinaglalaruan ng tadhana si Wilma. Ayaw talaga siyang gawing ‘Does,” he quipped. (Fate is playing tricks with Wilma. It doesn’t want her to become a “Does.”)
