Jen recently announced that she was set to marry her partner of 9 years.

Food blogger Jen Phanomrat took to Instagram earlier this month to announce that she was set to marry her partner of 9 years, after he popped the question.

Jen and her fiancé Leo Samanamud, who both run the food blog together Just Eat Life, took to social media to reveal the exciting news with their fans. However, the response wasn't quite what they were expecting. 

The image received hundreds of negative comments on Instagram, teasing Jen for having a small ring.

One person said

"It must suck to wait 9 years for a ring that look like that," while another said "Congrats! Where’s the ring?"

The hateful responses prompted the food blogger to disable the comments under the post.

 

9 years later, I said YES to my best friend! ❤️

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, Jen sad:

"I’ve always been an advocate for women supporting women, so I was shocked to see so many females wasting their time replying to each other to dampen our happy moment.

 He knew exactly what type of ring I’d love: A delicate, hammered gold ring with a tiny pearl. I don’t usually wear any jewellery, but when I do, it’s simple and minimal."

What mattered to me the most was the tiny detail on the inside of the ring. He asked the ring maker to inscribe the initials of our nicknames for each other. I swear I thought I was floating in the air when he pointed it out. My heart smiles every time I see it."
