While she “found it odd,” Bea obliged, and when she turned, “I found Dom kneeling with a box in his hand.”

“You see, I have done so many proposal scenes in my entire career, but nothing beats the real thing. I have been doing it all wrong!” Bea shared laughing.

When Dominic, 32, said his speech, Bea said “it’s like time stood still.”

“Everything went in slow motion. And I felt different emotions all at the same time — joy, excitement, love. I started bawling,” she recalled.

According to Bea, she “didn’t want that moment to end.”

“I want this real thing to happen forever… and right then there… In front of the people we love… we decided on forever,” she ended her sweet caption.

As early as last month, rumors swirled about the couple’ engagement after Dom posted about their romantic beachside date. Quickly, Bea denied the speculations.

Last week, the actress admitted they did talk about marriage but that they have their “own timeline.

Roque admitted that he’s had a crush on Alonzo since they first met in 2016. Back then, Alonzo thought Roque was too young for her.

They remained friends since they first met, and it was not until the latter part of 2019 during their trip to Japan when she began seeing Roque in a different light.

In April 2021, Alonzo first confirmed that she’s dating Roque. The celebrity couple marked their second anniversary last January 28.

Bea confirmed her relationship with Dominic Roque in August 2021.
