Filipino actress Lotlot de Leon announced her engagement to Lebanese businessman Fady El Soury, reported Filipino celebrity news site PEP.ph.
The proposal was held Sunday at the Nature Wellness Village resort in Tagaytay City, a popular holiday town south of Manila.
The actress was surprised when the waiter served a dish with the words, “Marry Me!”
“I’ve been waiting for a while,” Lotlot said.
El Soury, who goes by the name Fred, is the founder of the Phillipines-based Fady Sports, which sells outdoor and sporting goods.
“I went down on one knee and I told her, ‘Do not cry,'” he told PEP.ph. “I was planning on it — it’s been actually more than a month.”
Lotlot de Leon is a well-known actress in the Phillipines, best known for her role in the variety show “That’s Entertainment,” broadcasted by the GMA Network in the late 1980’s.
Her most recent work includes drama, romantic series and action. She was previously married to former matinee idol Ramon Christopher Gutierre before their separation in 2010.
Lotlot and Fady have been together for six years. A beach wedding is planned for December, they said.
