Local star Amanda du-Pont has been living it up in the Maldives on what looks like an extended birthday vacay of our dreams, but the highlight of this getaway has just been marked by a wedding proposal from her long-term partner Shawn Rodriques. The Swati beauty, who recently turned 30, is now looking forward to spending the rest of her life with Shawn.
In an Instagram video posted this afternoon, Amanda elatedly wrote: ‘I SAID YES!! Turns out my surprise beach picnic was @shawnrodriques epic proposal. My darling you, sweep me off my feet every single time but this time you had me crying! I said yes to the man I prayed for so specifically. Everything you are, is everything I asked for. Life isn’t perfect, but perfect with you in it. I love loving you, so thrilled to be your fiancé! Thank you, God.’
I SAID YES!!💎💍 Turns out my surprise beach picnic was @shawnrodriques epic proposal❤️😭 My darling you sweep me off my feet every single time but this time you had me crying! I said yes to the man I prayed for so specifically, everything you are, is everything I asked. Life isn’t perfect, but perfect with you in it. I love loving you, so thrilled to be your fiancé!😍🙆🏻 Thank you God🙏🏽
The sparkling blue-green water against the contrasting blue sky, the white sand, and their coordinated white outfits all make this entire proposal the most ethereal image you’ll see this week.
Amanda later shared the video below on Instagram, in which she couldn’t help but break down.
HONESTLY AND LITERALLY A DREAM COME TRUE💎💍 In shock I picked up my camera to Vlog right after the proposal…as I had been vlogging the trip for my youtube channel. But clearly I had no idea what I was doing and just broke down in tears😭 It’s ok to be vulnerable ❤️ I’m only human, this proposal touched me so deep. Thank you for all your well wishes and prayers. We are very grateful🙏🏽 I love you @shawnrodriques and God has answered our prayers🙏🏽
