Ruben Gonzales might have lost on SEAG gold but gets yes from fiance Bumgarner

Veteran Filipino tennis player Ruben Gonzales might have missed out on the gold in the 30th Southeast Asian Games in men’s doubles, but he still went home a winner. 

After the victory ceremony for the aforementioned tennis event, the 34-year-old tennis ace askedfor  long-time girlfriend Michele Bumgarner’s hand in marriage.

Without any hesitation, the 30-year-old racing driver accepted the proposal to the cheers of the audience who witnessed both the match and the engagement.

In what might be a first in the history of the Southeast Asian Games, two athletes will be taking their relationship to another level with a wedding in the offing.

Earlier, Gonzales and Treat Huey lost in an all-Filipino battle for the men’s doubles crown against Francis Alcantara and Jeson Patrombon, 7-6, 7-5.

In tennis, love means nothing, but what happened earlier showed love is everything for Gonzales and Bumgarner.
