It's confirmed! Heart Evangelista has gotten herself an apartment in Paris, France.
When asked during her live stream session on Instagram on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, about the "things that she bought recently," Heart told her fans she's been saving up to buy nice furniture for her new apartment in Paris.
The 37-year-old Kapuso actress said, "I just got myself an apartment so I do not really plan to buy anything else because I have like all of my nice furniture.
"I really want it to be very, very nice. And so I am saving up for that.
"But I've also been so busy to do anything, to shop. So the only time that I got to spare is to be on my bed and rest."
It isn't clear whether she has taken a lease of the apartment or purchased it.
LIVING IN PARIS?
It has been a little over a month since Heart left the Philippines for Europe, which has left many of her followers wondering whether she's now based in France.
They became even more curious after news about her house-hunting in Paris made headlines early in September.
In the same Instagram live session, a fan asked Heart if she has made Paris her home base.
Heart said "No, I'm not living [in Paris]," citing some projects in the Philippines that needed her attention, emphasizing she had to continue working to support her lifestyle.
"I have work here [in Paris] and work in the Philippines, and kailangan natin ng work, because, you know, kailangan natin maging independent to pay for your stuff and wit [hindi] humihingi ng anik-anik.
"So kailangan super work tayo.
"Hindi ako naniniwala na kailangan ano lang, ganun [humihingi lang], charot! Hindi tayo ganun, I'm a working girl. Okay?"
The GMA-7 actress also clarified that her Europe and fashion week trips have always been part of her job and not just for "lakwatsa."
She said, "A lot of people ask me about fashion week and they ask what I do here, puro lakwatsa, emeng ganyan.
"Hindi ho, trabaho ho siya. Hindi siya madali. Maganda lang siya and masaya siya kasi it's something that I love to do. I love dressing up.
"And it's really a full-time job. You know, I've never really been the type who just stay home and wait. I'm very creative with my time. I'm very creative with my time.
"I'm a working girl. I'm not 'Miss Hingi' so yeah, I work. So that's what I do."
When is Heart coming back to the Philippines?
Heart answered, "Indefinitely!"
