But Gatchalian on Tuesday clarified that the photo was not part of a prenuptial shoot in Paris.

“Hindi pre-nup 'yun. Souvenir photo sa Europe 'yun,” the senator told reporters when asked if he already popped the question in the City of Lights.

Gatchalian said they were still “enjoying the dating process.”

“Wala, hindi pa kami engaged but seriously dating,” he said.

“We’re seriously dating so we’re thinking about these things and we’re praying about it,” he said.

The former Miss Universe bet became more vocal about her relationship with the senator after they marked their first anniversary as a couple in November 2019.

Last Valentine’s Day, Manalo shared a photo of her posing near the Eiffel Tower as she talked about “giving your heart” to a man.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Don’t just give your heart to any guy, give it to someone who reaches for your hand during a prolonged moment of silence just to remind you they are still by your side. Give your heart to a man who pulls you close after a fight instead of pushing you away. Give it to a man who doesn’t make you doubt yourself or causes you to feel guilty for something you didn’t do. Give your heart to someone who’ll comfort you througout periods of insecurity, when your’e feeling inadequate or lost. Someone who continously reminds you of your worth. Give your heart to a guy who would never cause you to feel inferior in your relationship because he’ll do everything in his power to make you feel the opposite. Give it to a man who shows genuine interests in your passions and supports you in every aspect of your life. Someone who will go the extra mile to make you smile. Give your heart to a guy who will make you a priority instead of a second option. A guy will follow you anywhere in the world merely because a life without you is unimagineable. Give your heart to a person who asks if something is wrong, instead of keeping silent for the sake of not starting an argument. Give it to the guy who takes responsibility for his actions and apologizes when he’s done something wrong. Someone who doesn’t allow an argument to overshadow your relationship or keeps score. Give it to the man who shows up at your doorstep to apologize simply because the thought of you being upset hurts him. Give your heart to the person who finds time to text you when he’s out with his friends rather than waiting until the end of the evening. Give it to someone who won’t take your feelings for granted and reminds you how he feels each day. Give your heart to a man who will safeguard it with his life, because he knows the true value it holds. Don’t just give your heart to anyone. Find someone spectacular and never let go. ❤️ Happy Valentine’s!
