MANILA – The fiancé of Patrick Garcia was totally caught off guard when the actor suddenly knelt down on his knees in front of her after giving a testimony before their church last Sunday.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News’ Gretchen Fullido, Nikka Martinez said it did not immediately occur to her that Garcia was already asking for her hand in marriage.
Garcia earlier shared that he decided to propose in church since he and Martinez consider their relationship with God as the foundation of their relationship.
“Actually before he started talking about our relationship, parang I thought he was going to give a testimony. He went up there, he told everyone that he’s a baby Christian. I thought it was still about him,” she said.
“I still had no idea until the time na he called me up on stage and told me that he loves me and stuff like that. I super did not know anything. I did not see kaba or anything at all,” Martinez added.
Saying she was left speechless by what Garcia did, Martinez said: “Yung tears ko, I could not control, it was just flowing. I was super shaking, I was so nervous and overwhelmed and happy, so many emotions. I don’t even recall saying yes. I think nag-nod lang ako ng head. I don’t remember saying anything to him.”
With their wedding coming up soon, the 32-year-old actor said he hopes to have three more kids with Martinez, in addition to their first born, Chelsea, who they welcomed in March last year.
The two have not picked a specific date for their wedding yet, but they said they want it to happen in February or March next year.
