MANILA - Actress Bangs Garcia is engaged. The 28-year-old Garcia is set to marry her half-British boyfriend, Lloyd Birchmore, according to a video posted on Instagram by her friend, Star Magic artist Marlann Flores.

The short clip, uploaded Friday evening, shows Birchmore asking Garcia for her hand in marriage. It also provides a glimpse of Garcia's engagement ring. The caption read: "Omg I'm so happy for my best friend Val! I wish you all the best!"

Meanwhile, Garcia posted a photo of her and Birchmore on her Instagram account. The two are currently in Boracay with their respective families for the holidays.
