Yearender 2016 - Part 4: Stars Who Officially Got Engaged This Year

Stars who officially got engaged this year are Anne Curtis with chef husband Erwan Heussaff, Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia, Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga, Rochelle Pangilinan and Arthur Solinap, Gwen Zamora and Jeremy Marquez, widow Camille Prats and new found love JB Yambot, Desiree del Valle and Boom Labrusca, Luis Alandy and non-showbiz fiancee Joselle Fernandez, and Bangs Garcia and British boyfriend Lloyd Birchmore who already have a wedding date, January 17, in Boracay, where they first met each other.

An actress who had a same sex wedding in December is Rosanna Roces with transgender Jessy Arias. 

Transwoman Ate Glow (impersonator of former Pres. Gloria Arroyo whose real name is Rene Facunla) also married a British guy last July in London and is now known as Renee Hampshire. 

The actress daughter of Rez Cortez, Cai Cortez, also admitted she got married in civil rites with Tunisian businessman Wissem Rahkmi and she just gave birth to their son, Habib.

Other folks who found romance in each other this year are actor Geoff Eigenmann and singer Maya, singers Michael Pangilinan and Garie Concepcion, Brazilian import Fabio Ide and ex-beauty queen Bianca Manalo.

Zsa Zsa Padilla broke up with Architect Conrad Onglao but patched things up and have since gone back into each other’s arms.

Also reported to have gotten back into each other’s arm when they were paired in the movie “How to Be Yours” are Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson, but they have yet to admit it formally in public. 

Bea used to be on with Zanjoe Marudo and reports of their split up were reported late in 2015 and confirmed early this year.

After her breakup from Rocco Nacino, Lovi Poe seems to have found a new romance in a non-showbiz foreign guy, Chris Johnson. He is currently in Manila to spend the Christmas holidays with Lovi, then they will fly to Thailand for the New Year, but Lovi insists they’re not yet officially on even if their action speaks louder than her words.

Aiko Melendez found new romance in an Iranian named Shahin Alimirzapour in April and seems so happy about it even if she’s 12-years older than him. But five months later in September, the relationship was over. Aiko’s ex-husband, Jomari Yllana, is said to be romancing his “The Half Sisters” co-star Jean Garcia and they’re constantly seen together. But they have yet to admit their romance in public.
