Less than two months after revealing that she now has a special someone in her life, actress-host Bettinna Carlos is now engaged.
On Wednesday, the 32-year-old shared an Instagram picture of herself with non-showbiz boyfriend Mikki Eduardo and daughter Gummy holding her left hand that wore an engagement ring. Bettinna captioned her post with family, heart and praying hands emojis.
Mikki, on the other hand, posted a close-up shot of the diamond engagement ring. Both posts were flooded with congratulations from followers and celebrity friends.
Daughter Gummy also sweetly posted about it, saying: “My mommy is (engaged) woohooo!”
Last August, Bettinna, who has written about her struggles as a solo parent in her book titled Heartbreaks & Breakthroughs, introduced Mikki as her “answered prayer”.
She wrote how for years, she prayed for a man “who is already who he should be.”
“Yung okay na. Ayos na. ‘Wala na kong babaguhin.’
“LORD pwede po ba KUNG MAAARI LANG NAMAN LORD yung ibibigay Mo po ung natrain mo na? 🙏 Yung di ko na po kailangang turuan paano mamahalin at pakikisamahan ang anak ko???
“And God gave us you, @mikki.e.eduardo .❤”
She shared how impressed she was at how he treats her daughter, saying that Mikki was ready to be a father even before they met.
“I didn’t have to wait for you to love G because from Day 0 you have already decided. Or teach you how to get along with a child because you are a child at heart,” she said.
“And neither did I have to wonder if you know what you’re getting yourself into and if you’re ready to be a Dad because God Himself already prepared you for that role and placed that desire in your heart…before we even met.
“Ahhhhhhh truly, every good and perfect gift is from above. And when the Lord blesses, He adds no sorrow to it.
“You are perfect FOR US, my Love. You are my answered prayer. A blessing from the Lord. I thank God for you everytime I remember you.
