He proposed in October but only revealed it in March!
GMA 7 actors Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez just announced their engagement over Instagram last Sunday. Together with what looks like a casual photoshoot by Pat Dy and Team Pat Dy, Nice Print Photography released photos of the proposal that happened last October.
Gideon Hermosa styled the proposal setup, an ocean of various white blooms and candle light. Tom Rodriguez got down on one knee to propose and kissed Carla’s hand. He also gave her a bouquet of red roses after he proposed. TomCar, as their fans fondly call them, have been together for six years.
Tom posted this Pablo Neruda quote for his engagement announcement, “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this…”
Tom recently guested on GTalk TV Show on YouTube before the couple announced just before their engagement and when he was asked when he would ask for Carla’s hand in marriage, he replied, "We never know. When we’re ready—people might know and you never know if it’s already happened or not."
Tom and Carla spoke to Inquirer in January about their pandemic experience, sharing that it was all new to them because they were more accustomed to not seeing each other frequently. But being quarantined together meant they were together all the time. Like most couples locked down together, the actors face their fair share of challenges including balancing household chores with working from home without the advantage of a production staff which meant they had to upgrade their equipment.
Carla said to Inquirer, ““The pandemic tested us. We learned a lot from each other. I would say that our relationship became even stronger.” When dealing with misunderstandings she said, “We give each other time. That’s how it has always been for us, even before the pandemic. We’re quick to reflect and apologize. We don’t let such things go unresolved. We talk about them, because we don’t want to end the day on a negative note.”
We can’t wait to see what the TomCar wedding is going to look like! What's your guess–garden, beach, in the city? Congratulations and best wishes, Tom and Carla!
