MANILA, Philippines - Kapamilya star Erich Gonzales, 22, is engaged to her non-showbiz boyfriend, according to actress-host Kris Aquino.

Aquino made the statement during her morning show, "Kris TV," where Gonzales was one of her guests.

Her co-host, Melai Cantiveros, commented that Gonzales is ready to get married because of her skills in the kitchen.

To which Aquino replied: "Eh may engagement ring na nga eh."

Gonzales, who just smiled, did not confirm or deny Aquino's statement. She said she is just happy and inspired because of her special someone.

According to the 22-year-old actress, she met her boyfriend two years ago and received the diamond ring last year.

"Last year. More than a year na (kami). I met him two years ago and then we started as friends and then 'yun, last year niya binigay [yung ring]," she said.

"I'm so blessed to have him," she added.

In a previous interview, Gonzales said that it's good to have a non-showbiz partner.

"Mas peaceful, mas tahimik at walang gulo. Ako na lang ang artista, huwag na lang siya," she said.
