MANILA – Binibining Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon took to social media to announce that she is “officially” in a relationship.
On Monday, the daughter of actors Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong posted a photo of cupcakes bearing the text: “Will you be my girlfriend, my queen?”
It had the caption: “8-21-17. FINALLY! After a year of dating! It’s official!”
