How Iza reacted when she saw Ben for the first time

Award-winning actress Iza Calzado and her fiance Ben Wintle have shared more things about their relationship on last night's (February 11) episode of "Rated K".

Iza formally met Ben through Isabelle Daza's introduction in an event back in 2011. But before that, Iza admitted that Ben caught her eye already, and she had quite a good impression of him!

"Gwapo, pogi talaga," Iza thought when he first saw Ben. "He really caught my eye. Our eyes met briefly. Sabi ko, 'nahuli ako.'"

However, at the time when she and Ben were slowly developing a good frienship, Iza felt like she still wasn't ready to be in a serious relationship. It was because she just came from a breakup and her father Lito Calzado also died that year.

"Because I was still mending a broken heart, I didn't think I was in that space. It was in my head that he (Iza’s ex) was already the one and so many things are happening pero I knew intuition told me go for this guy (Ben)," she shared.

And as they say, the rest is history. Iza and Ben got engaged in 2017 and are currently into the sixth year of their relationship!

The "A Love to Last" actress feels lucky to be engaged to Ben. "Wala eh. Walang gambling, babae, so far wala."

Meanwhile, what Ben likes most about Iza is: "She knows exactly how to make me laugh."

Ben also admitted to having a second love.

He shared, "I’d like to say that Iza is my first love, but Iza also gave me my second love, which is, I love going to work."

Iza and Ben tentatively set their wedding date to later this year.
