MANILA, Philippines -- Brazilian model and host Daiana Menezes is now engaged to Rep. Jose Benjamin "Benjo" Benaldo of Cagayan de Oro.

Menezes revealed the engagement in an interview with "KrisTV" on Thursday.

"Engaged kami but we call ourselves 'asawa' na," the Brazilian beauty said, adding that they might get married next year.

According to Menezes, she met the congressman only last January.

"Parang ang bilis, hindi ba?" Menezes told host Kris Aquino.

She said the lawmaker proposed to her under the Eiffel Tower in Paris. After the proposal they went to Brazil, where Benaldo meet Menezes' parents.

Before Benaldo, the Brazilian was previously engaged to TV director GB Sampedro before their controversial break up last year.
