While couples go through countless events in the relationship, the day one of them pops the question will be a major love milestone. So, whether you are looking for ideas or simply trying to catch your vitamin kilig, here are ten of the most memorable proposal scenes in Kapamilya teleseryes.
Emman (Paulo Avelino) knew the search was over when he met Celine (Angelica Panganiban) in Walang Hanggang Paalam. Although their relationship did not work out the first time around, they still had their much-deserved happy ending, following an exhausting year of fighting the villains in the quest for justice. What we love most about this proposal is that it happened during the birthday celebration of their son Robbie (Robbie Wachtel), who was the happiest for his parents.
The MarVel magic in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin reminds us that love is about give-and-take. Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria) is like the ocean wave that slows down upon reaching her shore, Avel (Jospeh Marco). She might be as fierce as the fire but his love can mellow her down. What better way to seal their romance than Avel asking Marissa to marry him. It was a much-deserved happy ending for the lady who went through all sorts of sufferings.
Lucky Jodi received two proposals as she played dual characters in Sana Dalawa Ang Puso. The first one was Leo (Robin Padilla)’s straight-to-the-point confession to Lisa – no grand gestures, just classic sincerity. The next one was a bit of a fairytale as the jaded bachelor Martin (Richard Yap) did it under the snow – the third sign Mona (Jodi) asked from the universe. As the scene moved along its heart-fluttering sentimentality, Martin reminded his bride-to-be that life is about taking risks than looking out for signs.
There’s nothing more romantic than a handsome guy wearing his heart on his sleeve. After all, an honest speech can bring tears to a woman’s eyes. Anton (Ian Veneracion)’s offer to Andeng (Bea Alonzo) in A Love to Last is a classic example. He struck all our hearts while telling Andeng that their love may be unplanned but it would have to be life’s best surprise.
Proposals do not have to be grand. In the case of Isagani (Jake Cuenca) and Isay (Maxine Medina) in Precious Hearts Romances Presents Los Bastardos, the special event happened at a yard. Isay, still looking gorgeous in her ‘pambahay,’ stopped doing chores when her boyfriend arrived. Teary-eyed, Isagani then started to say nice things about her and their relationship. Then, he fell on one knee to pop the question. Forget about the dreamy aesthetics as even without it, this proposal hits right in the feels because of Isagani and Isay’s love story, the tear-jerker speech, and their mesmerizing chemistry.
Unconventional and heartbreaking are the words apt to describe Samuel (Enchong Dee) and Erika (Erich Gonzales)’s marriage proposal scene in The Blood Sisters. They got engaged in a hospital, a few moments before Samuel takes his final breath in Erika’s arms.
In Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin, Gabriel (Gerald Anderson) proposed to Bianca (Kim Chiu) using an umbrella as a prop because all their red-letter days coincidentally happened under the rain. What a memorable way to celebrate Kimerald’s reunion project!
In Till I Met You, hearts melted when Basti (James Reid) popped the question to Iris (Nadine Lustre) in a convenience store using a ring made out of string. Reminds us of a cheesy teenage love but their story is not just all about rainbows. Basti and Iris had to face relationship dilemmas typically faced by the millennial generation, which makes the engagement even more special.
Wearing their costumes, in the middle of the breath-taking fields, Lakas (Enrique Gil) went down on his knees to offer Ganda (Liza Soberano) a lifetime of love and happiness in Bagani. How do they pop the question in their mystical world, you ask? We heard Lakas say, “Handa mo na ba akong makapiling habambuhay?”
In Pangako Sa’Yo, Yna (Kathryn Bernardo) went on a romantic walk with Angelo (Daniel Padilla), clueless that she’s in for the sweetest surprise of her life. Angelo stopped and asked her to look at the stars, and then he asked her to marry him – without a ring, just their hearts basking in the newfound bliss. And without second thoughts, Yna said ‘yes!’
