Actress and TV host Kris Aquino announced her engagement to former politician Mel Senen Sarmiento in an Instagram video post on Sunday, October 24.
Despite of her health issue, Kris has still time for romance, a new episode in her life.
“To my best friend and the man I said yes to spending the rest of my life with, thank you for as Bimb said loving me for me, with no agenda, and for being just an overall good and patient man,” Kris writes.
Kris’ fiancé served as Secretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government under her brother, President Noynoy Aquino or PNoy.
“We discussed this post and i thought about it carefully… marami kasi sa followers ko ang nagtatanong kung kamusta na ko because matagal na kong nawala…”, Kris said in her Instagram post on Sunday. October 24.
“Aamin ako i’m only 95 pounds now. this pandemic and many stressful events that happened since mid August really caused my weight to drop & my health to suffer.”
Kris attributes this new love to a “matchmaker”.
“Somehow, i believe there really was a matchmaker in heaven who must be smiling now- i can almost hear his voice telling me, “kristina, tama na, respect the fact na gusto ni Mel ng tahimik na buhay.” And finally, “bunso”has learned to obey.”
“To my best friend and the man i said yes to spending the rest of my life with, thank you for as bimb said loving me for me, with no agenda, and for being just an overall good and patient man. It’s unreal how much more calm & peaceful i feel now that you’re here.”
“We agreed, what’s personal shall remain private so hanggang dito lang ang pwede kong ma share. Except i guess to say as much as i am proud to be an Aquino, looking forward na kong maging Sarmiento.”
