Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff are engaged too

After the most talked about weddings of Solenn Heussaff, Georgina Wilson, and Isabelle Daza, Anne Curtis-Smith will finally walk down the aisle with long-time boyfriend, Erwan Heussaff.

Early today, netizens were greeted with the engagement of Anne and Erwan via a video showcasing the recent US trip of the couple, Anne’s NYC Marathon, food trips, and other highlights of their trip together since 2010. Towards the last minute and a half of video, uploaded by Erwan, he pops the question while down on both knees. Anne’s “Yes!” ends the video.


The couple started dating in 2009, and went exclusively dating in 2010. Since that time, the two have been seen going on trips overseas. Unlike her other relationships, namely, Oyo Sotto, Richard Gutierrez, Paolo Araneta, and Sam Milby, Erwan has avoided the glitz and glamour of showbiz despite being the brother of actress and artist Solenn. Accordingly, Erwan prefers the Internet rather than go mainstream with his endeavors in the food and restaurant business.

Now, speculations are focused on the actual date, venue, sponsors, and other logistics of the wedding. Of course, the decision of the couple as to the designer of Anne’s wedding gown is much of a guessing game.
