Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo announced some pretty big news on national TV on October 29after years of dating, the two Kapuso stars are set to get married!

Aired on an episode of 24 Oras in the segment "Chika Minute," Jennylyn and Dennis confirmed the big news: "We're getting married!"

According to Dennis, the proposal was a simple one: "Gusto ko hindi naman masyadong magarbo. Sa panahon ngayon, dapat maging praktikal. Ginawa ko 'yong pinaka-simple pero at the same time, heartfelt."

Jennylyn revealed that she had no idea that a proposal was going to take place. She shared with Nelson Canlas, "Wala akong ka-ide-idea kasi dahil nga hindi ako bumababa sa bahay ng first floor, pero yung time na 'yon, sinabi sa akin ni Dennis kailangan ko bumaba dahil may i-shoo-shoot kami na parang message para sa aming future selves."

"Nagkaroon ako ng kutob nung nagsimula siyang magsalita kasi parang seryoso niya ako kinakausap tapos lumuhod tapos nagulat na ako nagbukas yung pinto," she said.

Dennis said that he chose to do the proposal at home because of Jennylyn's fragile condition. "Dito lang sa bahay dahil maraming factors na naging dahilan kung bakit dito ginawa," the actor said. "Unang-una, mahirap lumabas and sa kondisyon ni Jen ngayon, medyo pinagdadanan, medyo maselan."

The couple then broke the news that apart from the proposal, they're expecting a baby! Jennylyn shared that she's on her ninth week of pregnancy and that they found out two months ago. She said, "Sa tamang oras, sa tamang panahon, sa pagkakataon na ready ka na siguro tsaka ibibigay sa'yo. May two boys na kami, sana ibigay sa amin baby girl."
