MANILA—After so many years of postponed marriage proposals to his former girlfriends, Derek Ramsay, 44, is finally engaged to his girlfriend of almost two months, Ellen Adarna, 32.
Derek proposed marriage to Ellen last March 30 in a simple gathering among friends. In photos uploaded by the Cebuana actress, she was greatly surprised with the hunk actor’s proposal.
Until yesterday March 31, it looked like Derek could hardly get over from his engagement with Ellen.
He also posted on his Instagram some photos taken during their engagement.
He posted(published as is): “Since the day we first met @maria.elena.adarna the chemistry between us has been undeniable, It’s so strong that I have to catch my breath at times.
“I’ve always said that love is intangible, something you can’t see or touch…but now I believe otherwise.” Now he believes that he feels the real meaning of love.
He added, “The chemistry between us that has left me reeling at times has made me see, feel, and grasp this unexplainably deep love I now have.
“When I look at you I see love and when I touch you I embrace love.”
Present during their engagement were their loved ones, including his son Austin and Ellen’s son Elias Modesto.
Derek said(published as is), “Last night we were surrounded by so much love.
“I am honoured and grateful that you said YES, BUT most of all thank you for loving me and allowing me to love you…”
Their love story started during a simple dinner Derek organized for his neighbours in Ayala, Alabang composed of Ruffa Gutierrez, Ellen and other friends. And from that time on, the two have become inseparable. They admitted that what happened to them was love at first sight.
Derek had just broken up from his girlfriend of almost two years Andrea Torres last year, October 2020, while Ellen had been separated from his former boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz for more than a year.
It was on February 26, 2021, when Derek and Ellen confirmed to pep.ph their relationship.
The said that they have been together for one month that time, but they admitted that their relationship of “a month feels like it’s already a year.” (ECD/MTVN)
