Not all birthday celebrations were created equal. The old adage is that it’s the thought that counts and in Amanda du Pont’s case, her gift had thought and splendour in bucket-loads.
With 2018 coming to an end, Briefly.co.za reviews various highlights of the year.
No annual review would be complete without evaluating the best birthday gift of the year and Amanda du Pont scoops this prize according to Briefly.co.za.
The Skeem Saam actress went on holiday to the Maldives for her 30th birthday earlier this year.
The stunning vacation would’ve been a treat in itself but it was made extra special when her long-time boyfriend, Shawn Rodrigues, surprised her with a beautiful proposal.
Du Pont shared the exciting news via her Instagram account in July and the news quickly went viral.
Footage shows the romantic moment on 1 of the pristine Maldives beaches.
The couple is seen walking at a point where 2 tides meet when Rodrigues goes down on bended knee and pops the question.
The Swazi-born celeb has been dating Rodrigues since 2015.
