MANILA (UPDATED) - Wedding bells are ringing for Kaye Abad. The 34-year-old actress is engaged to her boyfriend, Paul Jake Castillo.
In a video uploaded by entertainment writer Darla Sauler, Castillo was seen asking Abad for her hand in marriage.
"We started off as friends tapos naging partner in crime kita, best friend, tapos hindi mo talaga napigilan at ginawa mo akong boyfriend. Now I'd like to seal it," he said. "Will you marry me?"
Castillo's proposal happened during a surprise birthday party he prepared for his girlfriend at a helipad atop a high-rise building in Alabang. Abad turned 34 on Tuesday.
On Instagram, several of Abad's friends, including Kapamilya actor John Prats and comedian Pooh, were quick to congratulate the former "Tabing Ilog" and "Two Wives" actress.
"Congrats [Kaye Abad]! Napakasaya ko natupad na hinihintay mo," wrote Prats. Sure ako na magiging masaya kayo. Mahal namin kayo ni [Isabel Oli]. May God bless the two of you. Sisiguraduhin ko na a-attend ako sa wedding ninyo kung hindi ka magkuripot sa headcount."
Celebrity stylist Patty Yap also posted a photo of Castillo asking Abad for her hand in marriage. "Soooo happy for you mars [Kaye Abad]! Iyak ako ng iyak! Priceless ang reaction mo dito! Pinatunayan mo na totoo ang fantaserye! Iniisip mo ba kung ilang carat yung singsing? Chos! Happy ako sa inyong dalawa!"
Abad and Castillo first admitted their relationship in April 2014. In an interview with Pep last July, Abad admitted that she will not have second thoughts in saying yes if Castillo proposes to her. "Ready na ako, kasi matanda na ako. Kung aarte pa ako, parang sinayang ko na lang rin, 'di ba?" she reasoned.
Abad was previously in a relationship with actor-singer Guji Lorenzana, while Paul Jake was with actress Melissa Ricks.
