MANILA -- Beauty queen Miriam Quiambao has made a "purity pledge" with her non-showbiz fiance, Christian motivational speaker and author Roberto "Ardy" Roberto, promising not to engage in any sexual activity before their marriage.

Quiambao, who is also a born-again Christian, posted a photo of their "purity pledge" on Instagram on Monday.

"Let it be known that I, Ardy Roberto aka Mr. Pogi, and I, Miriam Quiambap, aka Ms. U, vow before God to protect each other's purity from this day onwards until the day, by God's grace that we are wed. Therefore, we shall not engage in any act that shall ignite sexual desires or passions prematurely, such as passionate kissing (lips-to-lips), pheromone sniffing or foreplay. The only expressions of affection allowed are: kissing on the cheek, holding hands and hugging or "akbay." I, Ardy Roberto, promise to take the lead in this purity pledge and protect you, Miriam Quiambao, and your testimony. So help us God! In Jesus' name," the "vow" read.

It was also on Instagram where Quiambao announced her engagement to Roberto after her failed marriage to Italian Claudio Rondinelli.

Quiambao posted a photo collage including pictures of herself and her fiancé, her engagement ring and a bouquet of red and white roses. It had the accompanying caption “1 John 4:18,” a scripture passage that reads: “There is no fear in love.”
