On June 2019, TJ Monterde sought the approval of KZ Tandingan’s parents for marriage. It was supposed to be a secret until he actually proposes but KZ’s father slipped during a random conversation at home. Since then, KZ anticipated the upcoming proposal that finally happened on TJ’s birthday celebration, a day before the New Year kicked in.
Unknown to TJ, his girlfriend was ready to propose on that day as well, had he not pushed through with his plan. KZ tapped musician Gary Granada to deliver a performance as her cue to pop the question. But to her surprise, her long-time beau took the floor to dedicate a song and a sweet message for her. She already knew what was coming next and she has long been ready to say “yes”. Later, KZ gave TJ the ring she was supposed to offer in her proposal, hence, both the couple’s hands are wearing an engagement ring.
In August 2020, KZ and TJ finally tied the knot in an intimate ceremony. Although, they announced their nuptials months later in October through the music video for their song Can’t Wait to Say I Do.
