Longtime couple Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez are now engaged! The “Love of My Life” stars shared the big news on Sunday, March 21, 2021 through separate Instagram posts showing the couple holding hands, highlighting Carla’s ring.
Carla and Tom may have shared about their engagement just this weekend but Nice Print Photography revealed that they have actually been engaged since October 2020!
Along with a series of photos from the intimate event, Nice Print Photography posted, “And it’s finally out! The actual wedding proposal of Tom Rodriguez and Carla Abellana happened last October 2020. Congratulations, lovebirds!”
Photos from the simple yet romantic wedding proposal show a room filled with white flowers and candles. Also present on that special day were their family members who have been so supportive of their engagement. Tom said that during a family trip to Batangas last year, he asked for the blessing of Carla’s mother, who said that it would be a “good idea” to keep the event intimate.
“[Carla’s mother] offered her house for the setting, then boom, like a lightbulb, it’s all perfect. That’s even better, that’s us in our most real [selves]. We’re just there with our family. When we’re there together, when we’re there we’re just being ourselves,” Tom said.
The couple have been together for almost seven years now, and shared that they have never broken up or had a cool-off period since they always “fix whatever needs to be fixed.”
Congratulations, Carla and Tom!
