Miriam Quiambao engaged
MANILA, Philippines - Beauty Queen turned actress Miriam Quiambao is engaged to entrepreneur and author Eduardo "Ardy" Roberto Jr.
After what the couple's close friend Joyce Burton-Titular described as a "whirlwind courtship," Roberto proposed on the morning of October 6.
Several of their friends were part of the surprise, where the bride-to-be was presented with roses and a banner declaring the words, "Miriam, will you marry me."
Quiambao announced the news on Instagram, where she posted photos of the surprise proposal, and described it as an "answered prayer."
The 1999 Miss Universe 1st runner-up used scripture to caption one of the photos: 1 John 4:18, "There is no fear in love."
The engagement would lead to a second marriage for both Quiambao and Roberto.
In 2004, Quiambao married Italian businessman Claudio Rondinelli. The couple split in 2006.
In January 2013, Roberto lost his wife Tingting Roberto to lupus.
Roberto has authored inspirational and personal finance books, “Heart of Healing” and “Ang Pera na Hindi Bitin," and is the co-writer of a business column along with his father. - Rappler.com
