Actress Amanda du-Pont is getting married! The 30-year-old shared a sweet video of her boyfriend Shawn Rodrigues popping the question in the Maldives
The lovebirds visited the tropical nation to celebrate Amanda’s birthday, but Shawn had other plans up his sleeve. He took Amanda for a romantic walk on the beach and got down on one knee.
“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!” Amanda captioned the video.
Shawn’s proposal left Amanda in tears, but before him, some men had Amanda crying for a different reason.
Amanda has had her heart broken a few times. Here’s a look at how she found love after heartache…
Before finding her prince, Amanda had some encounters with a few frogs. In the past she was linked to rappers Jub Jub, Slikour and Cassper Nyovest. She denied that she had dated Slikour after appearing in one of his videos, saying they were just acting. She also rubbished claims that she was seeing Cassper, with whom she shared a passionate kiss during the 2014 Channel O Music Video Awards. One of Amanda biggest heartaches came at the hands of an abusive ex, whom she says raped her. While Amanda has not revealed his name, she shared her story in several interviews.
“I’d refuse to have sex as I was tired or didn’t feel like it but he’d force himself onto me. By then, I was falling out of love with him but I still have the guts to leave. Rape in a relationship is horrible. You don’t understand that a person who claims to love you can violate you like that,” she said in a 2014 interview.
