After getting engaged recently, singer-rapper KZ Tandingan confessed that she’s actually planning to do the marriage proposal instead, had TJ Monterde, her musician boyfriend of five years, didn’t do it sooner.
KZ’s confession took place during her and TJ’s guesting in the talk show Tonight with Boy Abunda yesterday, January 9.
“Alam ko na may plano na siya mag-propose sa akin,” KZ started narrating the proposal back story to host Boy Abunda.
She said she wouln’t have known about it had her dad kept the knowledge yo himself.
“June of last year, nagpaalam siya sa parents ko. So no’ng nagpaalam siya sa daddy ko, siguro nawala sa isip ng daddy ko na it was supposed to be a secret. No’ng nagliligpit ako ng mga gamit ko, nagkukwento lang si daddy sabi niya ‘Nag-usap pala kami ni TJ kahapon, parang may binanggit siya na propose-propose.’
“Tito Boy, napasigaw talaga ako sabi ko, ‘Daddy!! Dapat secret ‘yon!’ And then n’ong time na ’yon parang naisip ko na okay ready na siya.”
But prior to that, she was thinking otherwise because TJ, she said, was usually evasive of the marriage topic. Thus, in her mind, she started planning to pop the question instead.
“Kasi everytime na pag-uusapan namin ’yong kasal, siya palagi ’yong ‘hindi, mga ano pa yan in five years...’ bago pa daw kami magpakasal. Pero Tito Boy, every year five years lagi niya sinasabi at hindi nababawasan...”
But it turned out TJ was already ready. Because when Boy turned to TJ and asked him: “Why did you know that it was the right time?”
TJ said: “Important kasi sa amin ’yong families. So, sakto nandoon ’yong family ko and family niya n’ong birthday ko. So, sabi ko ito na ’yon this is the best moment with the best people.”
He added, “Hindi ko na-feel ’yong birthday ko, Tito Boy, kasi ang iniisip ko noon, proposal day siya kahit daming naggri-greet sa akin na mga tao.”
KZ then relived the moment and the emotion that she felt upon seeing TJ got down on his knee and finally proposed to her.
She said, “N’ong patapos na ’yong party niya parang tinatanggap ko na na baka nag-iba ‘yong plano niya then bigla siyang ‘I’m gonna sing this song, I just wrote this and I’m gonna sing this song for this beautiful woman’ ...tapos pinatayo ako tapos sabi niya ‘come here, let’s sing’, ayun sabi ko ito na yon.
“You know when I saw him, he is pouring his heart out for you and nagde-declare siya ng pag-level up ng commitment niya sa’’yo, hindi ko na din napigilan umiyak, Tito Boy.”
The newly-engaged couple have yet to reveal their wedding details but they are set to tie the knot this year 2020.
Congratulations again, KZ and TJ!
