MANILA – Bianca Gonzalez described the proposal of her three-year boyfriend, basketball star JC Intal, as beyond her wildest dreams.
Speaking to “Cinema News” which was aired on “Buzz ng Bayan” on Sunday, Gonzalez said she really was not expecting Intal to ask for her hand in marriage because they just had a huge misunderstanding a week prior.
“Zero clue. I really did not expect it especially because siguro a week ago, we came pa from a big fight talaga. And the fight was my fault so akala ko sobra akong bad shot sa kanya. I really did not expect it sobra,” she said.
Narrating in detail how the proposal happened, Gonzalez said she was at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 on her way to London for a short course on journalism and design.
“Yung unang guards that I passed, dalawa sila, meron silang two roses each. So may rose ako papasok ng airport. Pagkalusot ko sa x-ray, dalawa na naman na rose ang binigay. Sa reception area, the three girls na naghihintay doon, they had one rose each,” she said.
Thinking it was just a prank, Gonzalez said she actually sent a message to Intal to ask if he had anything with it.
“I kept on telling nga 'yung kasama ko na parang prank. Kasi ang weird. I checked in sa counter. Before I left, may nagbigay na naman ng rose. And even sa may bago mag Immigration, someone gave me na naman a rose. I messaged JC. Sabi ko ‘Hoy may kinalaman ka ba dito? Bakit ako may roses dito sa airport?’ I just thought parang he planned something sweet kasi matagal akong mawawala,” she said.
“Until somebody said I had to go out to verify. 'Yun na 'yun. Paglabas ko, grabe 'yung luha ko bumabagsak na lang. The girl na dapat may ive-verify daw akong baggage, binigyan ako ng tarpaulin. Binuksan ko, it said ‘Bianca please say yes.’ And when I turned around, my friends were there. JC and his parents were there. Wala na, sobra 'yung luha ko na talaga,” she added.
The television host said Intal’s gesture meant the world to her.
“Right after I said yes, ang una kong tinanong, ‘Oh my gosh does my mom know?’ It meant so much kasi naayos na pala niya lahat. Nakausap na niya mommy ko, ate ko, kuya ko, my friends. They had this one chat group na lahat sila nandoon. The Proposal 'yung title ng chat group nila. It was everything, the whole plan, the ring, the speech before he asked me, talagang beyond my wildest dreams, grabe,” she said.
In a separate interview, Intal said he and Gonzalez are planning to tie the knot either in November or December.
“Na-timing ko sa airport kasi Bianca loves to travel and we love to travel also together. I think perfect spot na 'yung sa airport. We had a short time to talk after the proposal. I asked her if it’s okay if we get married this year. Okay naman sa kanya. For sure masusunod ang girl sa wedding,” Intal said.
It was 2011 when Gonzalez admitted that she and Intal are officially a couple.
Last year, Gonzalez revealed that she and Intal have been been talking about settling down.
