Filmmakers Antoinette Jadaone, Dan Villegas are finally engaged
Nine years after they first met, filmmakers Antoinette Jadaone and Dan Villegas are finally engaged!
In an Instagram post, Talent agency Cornerstone Entertainment, which manages Antoinette, shared photos of the couple — including one where the director can be seen showing off her ring.
Proposal in Europe
Based on the backdrop of the photos, Dan proposed to Antoinette somewhere in Europe. Just recently, the couple attended the Berlinale Film Festival in Berlin, Germany.
Antoinette is set to direct The Soulmate Project, the upcoming series of James Reid and MOMOLAND member Nancy McDonie.
Her other notable works include films That Thing Called Tadhana and Alone/Together. She also did series On The Wings of Love and Till I Met You, starring James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
Meanwhile, her soon-to-be husband Dan Villegas also directed numerous films in the past including The Breakup Playlist, Always Be My Maybe, and Exes Baggage.
Dan-Antoinette Love Story
In an interview with Inquirer, the couple revealed that they first met during the gala night of Antoinette’s Six Degrees of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay.
Dan shared, “Her speech was very funny, and she had to stretch it because Lilia was late. She was so cute. She was a brilliant writer and director, and I wanted to work with her!”
After two years, they met again on the set of Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?, where Dan was the cinematographer and Antoinette as the script continuity supervisor.
The couple also co-own a film production outfit called Project 8 Corner San Joaquin Projects.
