  • Dianne Medina's most memorable moment in her life was when her husband, Rodjun Cruz, proposed to her in Boracay on his birthday in October 2017.

     For Dianne, the proposal was all according to God's plan and it came in His perfect time.

    On Monday, March 29, 2021 during PEP.ph's (Philippine Entertainment Portal) "Anong Chika Today?" live cast session on Calamansi app, she said, "Si Lord talaga lahat nag-aayos for you. As long as if you pray for it, si Lord talaga lahat. Basta always pray for what God wants for you, not what you want."

    The 34-year-old actress-host admitted she had been impatiently waiting for Rodjun to pop the question in the long years they've been together as a couple.

    Dianne recalled, "Nung 10th year namin, sabi ko, 'Lord, parang sobra na yung relationship, parang I'm not getting any younger.'

    "Kasi during that time, I was already 30, turning 31. Sabi ko, 'Pag ito wala pang nangyari, aalis na ako.'

    "Kasi siyempre kailangan ko rin ng... siyempre, I'm not getting any younger.

    "May body clock yung babae so sabi ko, 'Naku, baka mamaya hindi naman ito talaga mag-propose at saka parang happy-go-lucky, nag-e-enjoy pa sa buhay-bata, e.'

    "Kasi mas mabilis mag-mature ang babae compared to boys. So sabi ko, 'Kapag ito hindi pa nag-propose,' sabi ko, 'Lord, ayoko na.'

    "'Tapos alam mo yung same year na nag-pray ako, pinag-pray ko kasi... October 2017, dun siya nag-propose, nag-pray ako para first quarter ng 2017.

    "As in saktong yun yung kaka-30 ko lang, pa-31."

    Dianne further revealed that Rodjun, it turned out, was all along planning to time his wedding proposal on his 30th birthday.

    Rodjun officially turned 30 on October 10, 2017.

    She narrated, "Ang kuwento niya lang sa akin is matagal niya na talagang plan na he would propose ng 30th birthday niya kasi nga na parang something special, na milestone yun na nag-trenta siya.

    "So parang yun na talaga yung plan niya in mind. Sure naman siya na kami talaga.

    "And siguro parang more of talagang nag-e-enjoy din siya sa work niya and all, pero sa utak niya talaga, parang plan niya 30th birthday niya."

    "Parang takang-taka ako nun na, 'Ano 'to? Lahat nilibre niya sa Boracay?' Sabi ko, 'Nagtitipid nga kami, e.'

    "Kasi prior to getting engaged, may mga joint account kasi rin kami ni RJ na parang ipon-ipon, alam mo yun.

    "Yung typical couple na, 'Halika, mag-joint account tayo na ipon-ipon.' So ayun, lagi ko siya pinapagalitan na, 'Bakit kailangan na ang gastos?'

    "Yun pala, yun na yung proposal."

    Dianne added that she even planned a surprise dinner for Rodjun as a way to say thanks, but she ended being the one to be surprised.

    "'Tapos parang ako pa, ang ginawala ko na lang, sabi ko, 'Sige, babawi ako.' Nagprepare kami ng surprise dinner sa kanya.,,

    "Nung time na yun, oh my gosh, ang taba ko talaga. So si Rayver, tinitignan niya ako, 'Naku, magagalit itong si Dianne kasi ang taba niya, siyempre yung mga photos.'

    "'Tapos hindi pa ako masyadong nakaayos. Basta tingin siya nang tingin sa akin.

    "So nakakatawa, yung mga kasabwat ko, kaya pala nila ako sinabwat, yung pine-prepare ko palang surprise dinner, surprise pala niya yun sa akin. For the engagement pala."
