MANILA -- Actress Desiree del Valle is set to marry actor Boom Labrusca.

On Tuesday after the farewell press conference of "Flordeliza" which is now down to its last four weeks, del Valle confirmed her engagement when asked about the ring she was wearing.

"Para masabi ko na taken na talaga," del Valle told and other members of entertainment media.

According to the actress, Labrusca, who was del Valle's co-star in the mermaid series "Aryana," popped the question during the early part of their three-year relationship.

"I have friends who are Christian and they say na if you are really serious with the girl, 'di mo pag-hihintayin ng isang taon, dalawang taon o tatlong taon para to ask her hand in marriage. If you really think this person is right for you, gagawin mo na," del Valle, who is a Catholic, explained.

However, del Valle declined to give further details about the wedding.

"Sa amin na lang 'yon. We don't plan things like that. That's why I keep on saying madali lang kung gusto naming magpakasal eh and most probably it's gonna be a big thing because both of our parents are in the States -- nandoon ang mommy ko, nandoon din ang mommy niya. So, siyempre if ever that happens gusto namin eh kami-kami lang," she said. "Wala pa kaming formal na plans now pero if it happens it happens."

The actress added that she wants to have the wedding first before having a baby.
