Yam Concepcion recently announced that she has actually been engaged to long-time boyfriend, Miguel CuUnjieng for a while now.
The “Init sa Magdamag” star shared the good news on social media with photos from her boyfriend’s proposal, which happened in Niseko, Japan on 31 December 2018.
“A thousand crane YES,” she captioned the photos.
Celebrity friends took to the comments to congratulate the actress, including Kaye Abad, JM de Guzman, and Joseph Marco, the latter who wrote, “Congrats Yam! Really happy for you!”
Her fiancé also posted similar photos on his Instagram account, writing, “Now that my better half [Yam Concepcion] has made the call, time for me to join in the long-delayed celebration. I’ll start with just how hard it was to keep this a secret for so long – I’ve wanted few things more than to be able to yell this as loud as I can using every means I have! The Japanese legend of the senbazuru notes that the gods will grant one wish to anyone who folds 1000 paper cranes, but [Yam] is so special to so many, I only felt it was right to make sure those closest to us approved of my wish as well.”
Miguel revealed that he and his family and friends folded over 2000 cranes in preparation for the proposal.
“I asked her twice for good measure. You are my only wish, and if granted two wishes, you are also my second. I’ve loved you more each day since this magical one in Niseko, and I promise to give you my 100% for our forever to go.”
The couple are currently in New York together, with Yam previously sharing that she will be staying in the US for two to three months to spend time with Miguel.
