The marriage proposal was made during the August 9 episode of Rivera's self-titled weekly musical-variety show, "Marian", on GMA-7.

Before the royal engagement, Dantes gave his girlfriend a bouquet, asked her to occupy the Hot Seat and to explain Instagram photos of some of their most memorable moments together.

He then knelt on one knee and popped the big question in the presence of Rivera's family, their friends and fans.

After bringing out a ring, he said: "I offer you this gift on your birthday, but something [else] that's beyond any material thing...that's beyond any tangible gift, I offer you myself, my love, today, and all the days of my life."

"So please, serious ito..please, Marian, will you be my wife," the 34-year-old actor asked.

Rivera, who's turning 30 on August 12, answered in the affirmative. The newly-engaged couple hugged and then kissed passionately.

According to GMA News Online, Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera, collectively known as DongYan, met on the set of the drama series, "MariMar", and starred in other top-rating Kapuso shows.
