Wedding bells are soon ringing for actress LJ Reyes!

On Instagram, the 35-year-old shared photos of the proposal of her non-showbiz boyfriend, Philip Evangelista, at the beach as she quoted a bible verse about having faith in God’s timing.

“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope,'” she wrote.
