Valerie Weigmann announces engagement

19 May - Former Miss World Philippines Valerie Weigmann recently announced that she is now engaged to boyfriend Bodie Pulido.

As reported on GMA, the beauty queen, who has been on a trip to Peru with Pulido recently, shared a couple of photos of their visit to Machu Picchu - one of them of Pulido on his knee as he proposed to her.

She wrote, "And the highlight of the whole trip... finding my forever in the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. After [seven] years, you sealed the deal in the most excellent way."

Pulido, a businessman and a lawyer, is the brother of GMA-7 new reporter Maki Pulido. He and Weigmann had been dating for seven years before he finally popped the question.

On the other hand, Weigmann, who was part of the "Eat Bulaga" team, succeeded Megan Young as Miss World Philippines in 2014. She then relocated to New York, where she works as a model.
