Alissa Martinez Is Engaged!

It looks like it's going to be a doubly Merry Christmas for Alissa Martinez!



The youngest daughter of actor Albert Martinez and his late wife Liezl Sumilang has begun her journey to wedded bliss. 

Paulus Reyes, her boyfriend of eight years, popped the question to an unsuspecting Alissa who gave her wholehearted "yes" without question. Photos of the moment show the non-showbiz personality get on one knee at sunset in a scenic location, delighting his longtime love with the surprise of a lifetime.

The bride-to-be wasted no time in sharing the good news with her social media followers and posted multiple photos of the memorable afternoon on her Instagram. One caption read, "Literally this has been the happiest I have ever been," expressing the unfathomable joy at getting engaged.

With all the well-wishers extending their congratulations to the couple, nothing came close to topping that from Alissa's very own dad who penned a heartfelt tribute for his youngest. 

Part of it reads, "I look at you and do not see the passage of time. I see my little girl playing dress up, running through the yard, running around with the dogs, hugging your mama all day long. I will try and respect the fact that you’re older now and that the decisions you will make are your own, but you must understand that to me, you will always be my little girl."



The mention of Alissa's mom in his post proves to be extra special as he's always considered Alissa to be the most like Liezl, out of all his children.

Just like her, Alissa knew how to care for the home and the family that resides in one; all this she learned from the time she spent with Liezl who would have surely been head over heels over the news of her daughter's engagement.
