“It has been 9 years and now both of you decided to take it to the next level. Congratulations! May dagdag na namang anak sa pamilya natin. Prayers for both of you Gianna and Jed, we love you! ,” said Lani.
Senator Bong also took to Facebook to share the “memorable” family moment that happened on Christmas Day.
“Gianna and Jed, your engagement is an expression of God’s love. It is a blessing and gift that you should always cherish. Lagi niyo Siyang gawing sentro ng inyong pagmamahalan at uumpisahang buhay na magkasama,” wrote Bong.
The Revilla patriarch added that the engagement of his “baby girl” brought him mixed emotions.
“Honestly nagulat ako anak, medyo nalungkot dahil baby girl pa rin kita, pero siyempre nandun ako kung ano ang ikakasaya mo.”
