UPDATE (10-08-2017, 4:33pm) Iza Calzado is engaged to her boyfriend of five years, businessman Ben Wintle.
Designer Rajo Laurel broke the news through an Instagram post showing Ben down on one knee.
The engagement happened two days after the actress shared her recent interview with FemaleNetwork.com:
In the said interview , Iza shared that for her, "it was a choice to not get married [early]. I mean, hello, he obviously looks good. He works hard, and we could have gotten married years back, but we both were not ready for different reasons. For me it was really [that] I was not ready mentally.”
However, on the topic of settling down now, the Bliss actress shared that she felt that “Now is the time. I am ready.”
According to Rajo Laurel, the engagement happened in Sonja's Garden today before lunch. Ben, who has been planning the proposal for a month, asked Iza "Can we eat and dance together forever" in Filipino.

"I've been sick for a week! So I guess this is parang the highlight of my week--obviously--of my lifetime," Iza said happily in one video.
Well, it looks like today is game day for Iza and Ben! We don't know about you, but we're already excited for the wedding. And Divine's Lee's right: looks like there's going to be a lot of dancing involved:
Congratulations, Iza and Ben!
