Soriano officially announced on 'The Buzz' on Sunday that he proposed to Gonzaga last January 21 in their family home in Rizal.

The couple, in a relationship for seven years, said that they will get married this year.

“It was right after her birthday. It was like 12:30 a.m. January 21. We'd just come from a birthday dinner and I had the ring in my pocket the whole dinner. I just wanted to wait for the right private moment. It happened in her home, just very simple. She was in her pantulog already,” he said.

The proposal was witnessed by Gonzaga’s parents, Bonoy and Pinky, and her sister, Alex.

Toni during the interview turned emotional as she thanked Paul for waiting and being patient.

“Nung nagsasalita siya, when he was going to propose sa akin, nag-flashback lahat from day one. I remember there were times na he would tell me, ‘For the past seven years, I was never a priority in your life. It has always been God, your family, your work and me… I’ve accepted that for seven years.’ I always pray to God, sabi ko, ‘Lord kung dadating 'yung time na mapagod na si Paul kasi hindi na niya kaya maghintay, Ikaw na ang bahala,’” she said.
