In an interview with ABS-CBN entertainment show The Buzz, Soriano narrated how he proposed to the actress. The director said that he proposed after Gonzaga’s birthday dinner last January 20 in their family home in Rizal.

“I was in tears. It was quite an emotional moment. Before we went up to her living room, I had to talk to Tito Bonoy and Tita Pinty and I showed them the ring. I said, ‘Do you mind po if I propose to Toni?’ And her mom was like, ‘Oh it’s about time.’ So that was nice. And the dad looks at me and said, ‘Why are you asking me? Ask her.’ That meant there was that blessing. I wanted to give honor to her parents first. We literally ran into her living room,” he said.

According to the celebrity couple, they are planning to tie the knot this year.

“It’s been seven and a half years. She’s been such a great part of my life. The best blessing I’ve ever received. I want to spend the rest of my life with her,” Soriano said.
