Actress-comedian Wilma Doesnt is now engaged with non-showbiz boyfriend Gerick Parin. Her partner of 13 years popped the question on her birthday last Friday, July 10.
Dubbing it the "best birthday gift ever," Wilma posted the engagement video on Instagram as Gerick is seen surprising her on stage after she counted down to her special day. A giddy Wilma happily answered, “yes, of course."
"I called it process…[trust] the process kasi may mas magandang naghihintay [sayo]. Patience is a virtue... Learn to wait, your time will come," Wilma had captioned.

Aside from the congratulations and well-wishes, netizens also took notice of a minor detail that can't be unseen: If Wilma keeps her last name once they marry, she'll be named Wilma Doesnt Parin. It's a small thing, but one that's undoubtedly tickled the Internet's funny bone.
The name was first pointed out by Twitter user @juliajhmberlyn, with the Tweet garnering over 34k likes and 9k retweets as of writing.
