29-year-old actress-model Sam Pinto confirmed that she is now engaged to her boyfriend, basketball player Anthony Semerad. The proposal happened during their trip to Australia last August.
Sam also shared more details on how the Australian-Czech-Filpino basketball player proposed to her in an exclusive interview with the entertainment website PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Wednesday, November 13.
She said, “I kinda felt it naman kasi, ‘Oh, we’re going to Gold Coast this weekend. You have to wear something nice.’
“Okay, whatever, I wore something nice.But when we got to the hotel, may white long-stretch limo. And I’m, like, my heart stopped, ‘Is that for us?’
“‘Tapos biglang iyong driver, ‘Anthony?’ Sa amin nga iyon! Takot naman ako, di ba? Pagpasok, ‘Okay, where are we going?’ He didn’t tell me where we were going, what we were doing.
“The limo brought us to the dock, the pier, and then sabi niya, ‘Let’s go to the end of the pier.’ May helicopter ride.
“So, we went around Gold Coast.
“It’s so nice pala up there. You can see the full stretch of Gold Coast and the beach and the big waves. And then after that, sabi niya, ‘Wait, meron pa, meron pa!’
“In the same dock, sa dulo naman, may gondola ride pa.”
She went on to share that Anthony proposed to her during this gondola ride, “‘Tapos nung nilabas na [iyong ring], umiyak na ako… Ang dami pa niya sinasabi, pero wala, hindi ko na naririnig nung nakita ko.”
Right after the proposal, the couple had a photo shoot, which, according to her, they’re going to share some snaps on their Instagram account soon.
Meanwhile, the newly-engaged actress said that they’re planning to have their wedding scheduled two years from now since they are giving way to Anthony’s twin brother David Semerad and his fiancee Gwen Zamora’s wedding next year. Aside from that, the two also want to focus first in their business in Batangas before the wedding.
It will be recalled that last June, rumors about the couple’s engagement surfaced online following Anthony’s Instagram photo that he captioned with a diamond ring emoji. However, Sam immediately clarified through a post that they were not yet engaged at the time.
Sam Pinto and Anthony Semerad have been together for over a year now. It was back in October last year when the actress-model first revealed that the basketball player is her new beau.
