President Noynoy Aquino has no reaction to Shalani Soledad's engagement


091611-noynoy_main.jpgPolitician and TV host Shalani Soledad got engaged to Pasig Representative Roman Romulo, confirmed by the latter in his interview with ABS-CBN News. The 41-year-old congressman proposed to the 31-year-old Valenzuela councilor/TV personality last September 14 at the Our Lady of Fatima Church in Valenzuela after just a few months of dating. The two are planning to tie the knot some time next year.

Rep. Romulo said of Shalani, “Siya talaga ay napakasimpleng tao, napakadaling kasama, napakalapitin na tao, napakasimple kaya naman siguro kahit sino ang nakakasama niya ay kahit papaano talagang mabibighani sa kanya.

Many were shocked by this news and awaited reaction from Shalani’s ex-boyfriend, President Noynoy Aquino. The councilor and the president broke up almost a year ago, and President Noynoy has remained single since then.

Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda told ABS-CBN News that PNoy had no reaction when told about Shalani’s engagement. Lacierda said, “Nothing. He just said, ‘Oh, I was not aware’ and we went to the topic at hand. Walang reaksyon. He just said, ‘I was not aware.’ I don’t know if you could describe that as ignoring but we went straight to the topic at hand.”
