Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina celebrated Christmas with butterflies in her stomach after her boyfriend gave her a promise ring.
Maxine shared on social media that she thought the ring with her initial on it was just a Christmas gift but she was surprised when it came with a special speech from her boyfriend, diving instructor Timmy Llana.
“I didn’t honestly expect him to give his speech before he put the ring on me – ‘I promise to take care of you and will love you forever,’” she shared.
She clarified that the gesture was not yet a proposal but the ring represents his sincere promise.
“I’m so much grateful and speechless when he said those words I love to hear. I love you!” she wrote.
The beauty queen’s friends in the industry all gushed over her kilig post. Some even joked that the proposal is coming soon.
Maxine spent her Christmas with Timmy and the rest of her family.
“Merry Christmas from my family to yours! Don’t forget to pray and greet Jesus a happy birthday,” she wrote along with a family photo.
