Aiza surprises girlfriend with wedding proposal
MANILA - Singer-actress Aiza Seguerra and girlfriend of one year, Liza Diño, are now engaged.
A friend of the couple, Toni Co, shared videos and photos of Seguerra's proposal in a series of posts on Instagram and Twitter. The proposal took place Friday at the Teatro Hermogenes Ylagan at University of the Philippines-Diliman.
A short clip taken by Co shows Seguerra down on one knee on stage, holding an engagement ring. A tearful Diño is seen saying "yes" in front of a cheering crowd.
Seguerra, according to an Inquirer report, had set up the whole scenario. Diño was made to believe they were acting for a fund-raising performance of a play titled "Kung Paano Maghiwalay," which was attended by the couple's parents.
