Forever was cut short for Rebecca on the primetime bida teleserye Ngayon at Kailanman. She lost Rodrigo (TJ Trinidad) over rights to the Cortes wealth and fortune. As if that was not unimaginably painful enough, she had to face her one and only daughter be taken away from her. This on top of unknown gunmen attempting to end her own life. Now, marred with tragedy, Rebecca is determined to seek revenge against the villains of the story by any means necessary.
Meanwhile, in real life, Iza Calzado is on the threshold of happily ever after!
It was on October 7 of last year when she and longtime boyfriend Ben Wintle officially got engaged. At the time, fans were shocked after photos and videos courtesy of the couple’s close friends and family revealed the big announcement. The British entrepreneur surprised Iza in Tagaytay with a bouquet of flowers before getting down on one knee and popping the question.
“I still can’t get over all the effort that my fiancé (naaaks!!!) put in just to make the day memorable for me and pull off that surprise. I am so lucky and grateful to have found a man who only wants the best for me. Looking forward to a bright and wonderful future ahead of us!” the actress wrote on an Instagram post.
As an update, during her last appearance on Magandang Buhay, she confirmed that the wedding is set to be at the end of this year.
Back in 2015, on the now defunct talk show Kris TV, the couple shared that their love story began in 2011. Iza was moving on from a previous relationship when she first met Ben at a magazine event. He had asked to add her on Facebook, but because of her fear of worried accounts, she opted to give her number. And the rest was history.
Surely the two are feeling the wedding fever. If you are too, then check out this gallery of their road to forever.
