Look! Actress And Fitness Enthusiast Ina Feleo Is Engaged!

"Two weeks ago I was in church praying and thanking God for all the blessings he continues to give me and then the thought of my relationship hit me and I turned to Him to entrust everything completely, because His will is always better than mine," wrote actress and fitness buff Ina Feleo with a wave of sentimentality.

The quote comes from a longer, heartfelt Instagram post that detailed the events leading up to her engagement, a relationship milestone she previously thought wouldn't happen any time soon.

The lucky man who can now look forward to calling Ina his wife is Italian businessman and restaurant owner Giacomo Gervasutti (who sometimes goes by James Gerva for short). This bride-to-be met him on a trip to Venice, Italy a few years back. The two immediately hit it off and exchanged emails, constantly keeping in touch and developing a friendship.

Things took a turn for the better when James visited Ina in the Philippines and made his intentions for her clear, the two becoming an official couple in 2017.

"In the past, when I got to this point of entrusting my 'love life' the next events would lead to a falling out. But now this happened, and I felt so calm about it. I never really get into a relationship without thinking that it could lead into a more serious future, but it didn’t happen before and I am just so grateful that this happened now," Ina continued. 

She went on to recollect how the gesture was totally unexpected as it happened during a quiet night at home when it was just the two of them spending time together. 

Readying himself with an engagement ring that was actually an heirloom piece, James popped the question when Ina had finished getting ready for bed, facial cream just applied and with a cup of hot tea in hand.

"I don’t have an instagrammable photo because he asked me when I had just put on my night creams and hadn’t brushed my hair and was quietly sipping on my probiotic tea. I wouldn’t have had it any other way!" she exclaimed. 

Already, Ina is looking forward to experiencing married bliss with James and begins the journey towards it with a promise. 

"This is completely out of character from you but I will take care of you don’t worry. I love you!" she added.

As a testament to her faith—a factor in the recent turn of events that Ina believes played a big hand in how she's finally getting her happily ever after—Ina also subtly made a biblical reference about the enduring nature of destined love. 

"Love is patient. Love is tested. Love endures," she wrote.

At the end of her post, Ina broke her seriousness by joking that she wouldn't be growing old a single woman, after all.

Aside from her fans and herself, the person the most happiest about this engagement is Ina's mom. She's been open about wanting to welcome an apo in the family for some time now, and now that her daughter is engaged, her wish can finally be granted, sooner than later.

Her celebrity friends were equally excited as her mom and personalities like Derek Ramsay, Marjorie Barretto, Jackie Go, Joyce Ching, and Jessy Mendiola all shared their support. 

We can't wait to see how Ina and James plan their wedding! Congratulations to the happy couple!
