MANILA, Philippines—Jeanette Panaga made sure that the arrival of 2021 would be a memorable one as she popped an all-important question to girlfriend Michelle Morente as fireworks roared to celebrate the New Year.

With a ring in hand and one knee on the floor, Panaga popped the question to partner Morente and the latter gave a resounding “yes!” as response.


Both volleyball players shared their life developments on their respective Instagram accounts.

“My 2020,” shared Panaga’s, 22, post.
