It all started when Ryan Agoncillo’s manager Noel Ferrer had his Instagram followers guessing as to who will tie the knot on April 28 next year. He said that priest, Fr. Tito Caluag even had the date saved on his calendar. Noel then gave three options to choose from which included couple of five years, Iza Calzado and Ben Wintle.
On Magandang Buhay’s Friday episode, Iza revealed that if Ben proposes to her, it is possible that they will get married in 2018.
“Ang dami ngang nagtatanong kung kami daw ba ‘yun. Sabi ko, pinangungunahan naman kami. Nireserve nila pero hindi pa kami engaged,” she said, admitting that the date got really reserved for them.
Iza then narrated what exactly happened during that time. “Para kasing anniversary ‘yan nila Juday, di ba? I think also nila Lucy (Torres) and Richard (Gomez) and Sharon (Cuneta) din ba? And Kiko Pangilinan. We have a chat group and then sabi nila, auspicious ‘yung date. Sinong isusunod natin? Sabi mismo ni Juday, di ba dapat si Iza at saka si Ben. Tapos nireserve na nila.”
When TV host Boy Abunda said that Ben, who does not know about their conversation, has to propose, Iza agreed, “Well at some point, yeah. It’s gotta happen.”
“Actually kasalanan ko rin yata dati kasi lagi akong ‘I don’t want to get married yet.’ Tapos dumarating pala talaga ‘yung point na parang pwede na akong magpakasal. I think dumating na rin ako sa point na mas mature na ako na alam kong lahat ng fears mo, nasa utak mo lang ‘yan eh.”
She also admitted that she and Ben have serious talks about settling down already. “I think hinihintay lang niyang makita ‘yung time na pagsinabi niyang having kids, hindi na ako (reacts). Importante kasi sa kanya magkaroon ng kids and sa akin naman, slowly. Medyo, again, takot pero kaya ‘yan.”
