Kapamilya actress Isabelle Daza is engaged to French businessman Adrien Semblat, her boyfriend of six years.
In her Facebook status today, February 5, Isabelle simply wrote: “I said yes.”
She also shared a separate Instagram post, showing a photo of her and Adrien taken at Amanjena resort at Marrakech, Morroco.
Its accompanying caption has an engagement ring and heart emoticon, alluding to her newly-engaged status.
It can be recalled that the couple went on a trip to Morocco sometime in November last year.
KEEPING IT UNDER WRAPS? But in recent interviews, Isabelle had been evasive about whether or not Adrien had proposed already.
“Well, I'm forcing him to get engaged na, I keep telling him.
“Hopefully, this year it will happen,” said Isabelle in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last month.
NOT LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. Their love story was far from the love-at-first-sight type of romance.
The 27-year-old actress revealed that she actually turned down Adrien seven times before they officially started dating in the past.
Apparently, the Kapamilya actress was still healing from a breakup with a Pinoy boyfriend of six years at the time.
“In-introduce siya sa akin with a lot of my friends.
“I just got out of a relationship, so ayoko pa,” Isabelle said on Kris TV’s March 2015 episode.
But as fate would have it, Adrien proved to be a persistent suitor as he invited Isabelle to go out on a date again.
“Sabi niya, ‘Hey, I’m playing with some street children sa Manila Bay every Saturday.’
“I love football and I love kids, right? So sabi ko, ‘Okay, I'll go.’
“Nung Saturday na nangyari, I felt under the weather.
“Alam mo yung masakit yung throat, my eyes are watery…
“I can’t play for three hours with kids sa ilalim ng sun, right?
“So, nag-cancel ako ng last minute. This is the seventh time na nag-cancel ako sa kanya.”
Later that day, Isabelle got an invite from a friend to hang out in Rockwell, and she said yes because she was feeling better by then.
“Guess who the first person I saw sa Rockwell? Siya.”
“Sabi ko, ‘This isn’t what it looks like. I look guilty but I was home buong araw.’
“Tapos parang siya hindi naniniwala.
“So, parang sabi ko, ‘Okay, I'll go out with you na.”
Isabelle and Adrien dated for four months before they officially became a couple.
