You know what they say: Love can conquer anything! And while we’re all trying to adjust to the so-called new normal, sometimes you just can’t let anything get in the way of life.
Meet these celeb couples who said yes to tying the knot amidst the pandemic. Once again, congratulations!
Derek Ramsey and Ellen Adarna
Amidst the endless speculations about their relationship after being spotted in Ruffa Gutierrez’ Instagram posts, the couple made it absolutely official when they got engaged this March 30, almost two months after going public.
Eagle-eyed fans can’t say that it’s a surprise though, as Derek once shared in an interview with MEGA Entertainment that he sees Ellen as The One.
The couple got engaged during a small ceremony with their closest friends and family members.
Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola
As early as 2017, the host said he was “ready” to settle down with the then-newcomer Jessy. Four years later on December 2020, they announced their engagement through beautiful prenup photos taken in Amanpaulo, Palawan. They even have the perfect hashtag prepared: #JessyGotLucky.
The longtime couple has gone through a number of twists and turns in the past as well, most recently through a supposed engagement leak before Luis popped the question.
Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert
Eight years is a long time, but it was enough for actors Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert to know they’ve found their perfect match. The couple announced their rituals through a breathtaking underwater shoot on December 2020.
“We’ve grown up together and I look forward to growing old together” Vin captioned.
This March 30, the engaged couple also welcomed their firstborn, baby Celeste, into the world.
Andi Eigenmann and Phimar Alipayo
December is sounding like a lucky month for engagements! Islander couple Andi and Philmar also got engaged in December of 2020, as they posted a very on-brand shot wading in the ocean of their home island of Siargao
“It would’ve been ok regardless, but it did happen. And it happened the way I wanted it and so much more. Nothing grand. Unprompted, simple, and oh so sincere. That’s us. That’s him. That is how I want the rest of my life to be.”
They couple share a daughter named Lilo and a son named Koa. Andi is also co-parenting her daughter, Ellie, with Jake Ejercito.
Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez
After six years together, Carla and Tom got engaged in a beautiful rose-filled ceremony – and they even captured the scene in a breathtaking video that’s now on YouTube!
The couple shared the news this March 21, but the company that took their photos eventually revealed that they were engaged as early as October of 2020. Talk about keeping it private.
Before he popped the question, Tom earnestly told Carla: “I’m sorry it took this long, but you know there was never any doubt in my mind ‘di ba?”
Glaiza De Castro and David Rainey
On December 24, Glaiza’s holiday trip turned into one of the best moments of her life, as she got engaged with her Irish boyfriend, David Rainey.
“Who would’ve thought I’d say yes in freezing cold weather. …it just felt right. 🍾🎄💍”
The lowkey and long-distance couple have been dating for two years before officially tying the knot.
