In an interview with reporters at the launch of Gabbi Garcia’s music video “All I Need,” where he served as co-writer and producer of the song, Christian said about the proposal: “I felt it was time for both of us. We were both ready for the next step. I guess you just feel it in your gut.”
He also said that it helped that they were of age and in the position to think of settling down.
When asked what could happen to their respective careers now that they’re engaged, he said: “This opens up new avenues. Some people tell me, it’s going to close avenues, but in fact it broadens it.”
With regards to the reactions of his good friends such as Erik Santos and Mark Bautista, Christian said all the messages are on his Instagram account.
“Well, makikita ‘nyo naman sa Instagram, ayun na! Ayun na. Sila Mark Bautista, ayun na, congratulations, ginulat mo kami. Totoo naman, because we wanted it private lang and then, actually October 30 pa nga, but kita ‘nyo na nag post kami days after. We want it for ourselves first privately,” he said.
(Well, you can see it on Instagram like this is it! This is it. Mark Bautista, everyone was like, this is it, congratulations, you surprised us. It was true [that it was a surprise], because we wanted it private, and then as I said, it was on October 30, but as you have seen, we posted it days after. We want it for ourselves first privately.)
According to Christian, he felt it was nice to propose in Europe, but, when they arrived, he felt it was too staged, deciding to pop the question to Kat in a room with only the two of them. They were in plain clothes, he handed her a small bag containing the ring, which Kat initially thought was candy.
Christian said he and Kat have yet to sit down and discuss the wedding details.
“Nothing yet. I’m not yet sure. We don’t have any details yet, but it’s going to be a private, small wedding,” he said in a mix of English and Filipino. – Rappler.com
