Bela Padilla reacts to Neil Arce-Angel Locsin engagement

Center Stage

IT'S not an issue for Bela Padilla that her ex-boyfriend Neil Arce is now engaged to Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin.

Bela allowed some netizens to answer questions through her Instagram account.

How's her heart, knowing that her ex is already engaged?

"Why would you assume that I'm affected? I'm happy for them."

It Took Bela and Neil four years before they broke up in January 2017.

At that time Bela admits she prioritized her showbiz career over her lovelife.

"Sobrang bait niya and he deserves the right girl.”

Despite their split up, Bela and Neil were still able to work together with some of the latter's produced films.

Meanwhile, Angel and Neil were friends for seven years, followed by a mutual understanding.

In March 2017, they began dating, but only in February 2018 when Angel confessed that they’re officially on.

After a year and four months, Neil proposed.

Both of them announced their engagement on June 29 through their own social media accounts.

In his post, Neil meaningfully posted.

"Thank you for allowing me to be with you, take care of you and most of all love you for the rest of my life."
