He proposed on Aug. 16, which was also Hong's 28th birthday.

Teo told 8world that he had been planning the yacht proposal for three months, and sought permission from her parents before going down on bended knee before her.

While the couple has plans to get hitched in two to three years, Teo decided to propose in advance as he wants to have more time to make wedding arrangements.

Emotions ran high during the proposal, and he revealed that he shed tears after seeing Hong cry.

They would later find out from his family members and their friends that both their parents, who were also on the yacht, were in tears at the time.

Couple intends to have two kids

Teo told 8world that they have been on the hunt for a house, and want to get one that is spacious enough to comfortably house the two kids which the couple intends to have.

Hong added, "I know it's not up to us, but I hope we'll have a boy and a girl."
