After two years of being together, Andi Eigenmann’s beloved partner Philmar Alipayo finally put a ring on it!
In an Instagram post wherein they’re seen gleefully showing off the ring while both in the water, she enthusiastically imparted that they already got engaged.
“I never thought about how my engagement would go because quite honestly, I didn’t think I’d have one. It would’ve been ok regardless, but it did happen. And it happened the way I wanted it and so much more. Nothing grand. Unprompted, simple and oh so sincere. That’s us. That’s him. That is how I want the rest of my life to be. I am over the moon, so stoked to be spending it with you my mahal @chepoxz!” she wrote in the caption.
True to what she has mentioned, the proposal was indeed not a grand one as it took place at the porch of the room they were staying in during their recent family getaway in Anilao, Batangas – with only just the two of them and no fancy setup. They shared the poignant moment in the latest vlog uploaded on their YouTube channel Happy Islanders chronicling the second part of the said trip, which has already raked in over 400 thousand views as of this writing.
And as we anticipate when, where, and how their wedding is going to be, let’s take a look back on their lovely and inspiring relationship through this feature!
In their Magandang Buhay guesting in 2019, when they were still expecting for their daughter Lilo, it can be recalled that Andi was definitely caught by surprise as Philmar came on the set and surprised her with a bouquet of flowers, which made her emotional and teary-eyed. She elaborated that it had been awhile since they’d seen each other and expressed how much she missed him.
She giddily narrated to momshie-hosts Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros-Francisco, and Jolina Magdangal-Escueta how they met and how their friendship turned romantic in due course. Andi remarked that she saw him at one event and asked if she could take a photo with him. “Tapos eventually, since maliit naman ‘yong community, tapos magkabarkada rin kami, naging magkakaibigan din kami,” she reminisced. Philmar added that he would call her sweet names to show his love for her. “No’ng una lodi, then naging mahal ko,” he uttered shyly.
The talented actress stressed that he is a sweet boyfriend and does whatever it takes to make her happy. She talked about that one moment when she traveled with him as he joined a competition, and the place that they were staying in did not have electricity. He wanted her to be comfortable and started fanning her for two hours straight. “Gaano katagal niya ako pinapaypayan? Two hours,” she shared excitedly.
Andi is so committed to her current relationship that she even learned how to speak his native tongue, because she feels that since they are residing in Siargao, she has to make an effort to understand the dialect.
Going through their respective IG accounts, we can see how they’ve been inseparable and can’t seem to get their hands off each other. Residing now in Siargao, they both love to hit the beach, ride the waves through their surfboards, and take a dip in the ocean from time to time. If they are not in the sea swimming, they like to hangout by the beach; hence their glowing tans.
The couple celebrated their second anniversary together last June and are now expecting for their second child together.
Congratulations and stay in love, Andi and Philmar!
