Rachel Peters And Migz Villafuerte Are Engaged!
Metro Channel's "Beached" host is a bride-to-be!
Metro Channel's Beached host and Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters is getting hitched! She excitedly shared the news via an Instagram post that featured a photo of her hugging her now-fiancé, Camarines Sur governor Migz Villafuerte, while flashing a smile and showcasing her beautiful engagement ring.
Her fellow beauty queens—Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman, Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2018 Jehza Huelar, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Intercontinental 2014 2nd runner-up Kris Janson, Miss Universe 2013 3rd runner-up Ara Arida, Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa, Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann, and Bb. Pilipinas 2019 2nd runner-up Samantha Bernardo—were among the first ones who congratulated her.
The couple was on a vacation with friends in Indonesia, where the proposal took place. Migz surely knows how to make his girl happy, as he planned the proposal at sea, aboard a ship, where Rachel feels most at home.
Rachel's friend, social media influencer/model/entrepreneur/designer Patricia Henson, who she was traveling with in Indonesia, posted a photo that showed a scenic setting in Komodo National Park where the proposal could've possibly taken place. Her caption: "1 ship, 4 air conditioned rooms, 2 speed boats, 8 pairs of fins and much to explore. What an incredible week it has been in what has become our home out at sea. This trip will always have a special place in my heart ⛵️🗺 Thank you so much @migzvillafuerte for getting us all on board and again, a massive congratulations to you and @rachelpetersx ❤️💍 You guys are amazing!"
Several hours before Rachel announced her and Migz's engagement on social media, Patricia also posted a candid photo of their group of friends during their trip with the caption, "One for the books I tell you." We now know why!
The stunning bride-to-be celebrated her birthday last October 20. Migz greeted Rachel on Instagram, saying, "Happy birthday @rachelpetersx ❤️ this post is a day late because i was busy living in the moment with you yesterday 😘 i’ll whisper kilig stuff in your ears nalang when i see you again later 😘"
The couple has been in a relationship for more than five years now. In an interview on Magandang Buhay back in October 2017, Rachel shared how she and Migz met: "I was about to join Miss World, when I arrived in the Philippines, I didn't know anyone. So, I was invited to an event in Cam Sur, and we met there. It was not love at first sight. Sobrang hindi ko s'ya type at first. But then, the more time we spent together, you know, I realized he really has a good heart. His heart is always in the right place. And, you know, he loves his family. And for me, those are the two of the most important things to look for in a guy."
Congratulations, Rachel and Migz!
