Jericho Rosales is now engaged to his girlfriend, Filipino-British TV host Kim Jones, whom he has been with since late 2011.

In an interview on The Buzz, the actor revealed that he popped the question during a religious service on August 4, which was Kim’s birthday.

“I just had that feeling in my heart na I have to propose sa Church. It cannot be like kaming dalawang lang. I felt like I had to propose in front of people na hindi konektado sa akin (I just had that feeling in my heart that I have to propose in Church. It cannot be like just the two of us. I felt like I had to propose in front of people who weren’t connected to me.). [The Church] allowed it,” he was quoted as saying in an article on ABS-CBNNews.com.

“I went up onstage, the pastor called me. He was talking about how much God loves us. And then pag-akyat ko (when I went up), I opened up with ‘Why me? Why does God love me after everything that I have done in life? He has an unconditional love for us.’ And then the next question was why me pa rin but take out the letter H and add another M: W-Y-M-M-Y, which means will you marry me,” he continued, sharing that both Kim and him were crying after he proposed.

Jericho then posted a photo of Kim showing off her engagement ring on his Instagram account.

“i love you, Miss Jones. You are the love of my life. Thank you for saying YES (to forever) to me,” he wrote in the caption. “Happy birthday! God is amazing! Yeeeeeehaaa! We are engaged !!!!”

Kim later thanked Jericho in a post on her Twitter account.

“I love you @jericho_rosales!!! Thank you for making me the happiest lady in the world!!” she wrote. “Now I can say "I'm engaaaaagggeeeddddd!!!!!!!!"

As for their wedding plans, Jericho only said that they wanted to have a beach wedding, but that they don't have a specific date in mind yet.
