The proposal 
Paul said that he proposed on January 21, the day after Toni’s birthday in front of her immediate family. “I was in tears, it was quite an emotional moment,” said Paul.
He said that he asked permission from her parents, Pinty and Bonoy Gonzaga, first. Toni’s mom apparently said, “It’s about time,” while her dad said, “Why are you asking me? Ask her!”
Paul said that he assured them that he wasn’t trying to take Toni away from her – only that he wanted to join her family, too. He said that he broke down in tears as well – and that Toni did too, when her father embraced her.
