After 7 years, #JenDen is finally getting married!
After a lengthy relationship that brought them through ups and downs, celebrity couple Dennis Trillo and Jennylyn Mercado not only revealed that they are tying the knot, but are also expecting their first child.
The two made the announcement during the closing moments of GMA’s 24 Oras on Friday, October 29.
“We’re getting married,” the two said in unison.
When asked how Dennis popped the question, Jennylyn shared that Dennis invited her to what she initially thought was a photoshoot, but was in fact Dennis’ planned proposal.
“Wala akong ka-ide-idea kasi hindi na nga ako bumababa ng bahay, pero nung time na ‘yun sabi sa’kin ni Dennis na bumaba kasi may shoot daw,” she said. “Nagkaroon ako ng kutob nung nagsimula siyang magsalita kasi seryoso niya akong kinakausap tapos lumuhod.”
Jennylyn also shared snippets of Dennis’ preparation for his proposal on her recent vlog:
On top of their engagement, the couple also announced that Jennylyn is nine weeks pregnant. Both Jennylyn and Dennis have respective sons from their previous relationships, so the two are hoping to be blessed with a baby girl this time.
Jennylyn and Dennis first became an item in 2010 but split the year after. They got back together in 2014 and celebrated their seventh anniversary back in January. Jennylyn shares one child, Alex Jazz, with her former partner, actor Patrick Garcia, while Dennis had his son Calix with his former partner, beauty Carlene Aguilar.
Congratulations, Dennis and Jennelyn!
