Angel Locsin sure is lucky to have a best friend like Dimples Romana!
In an interview on “Magandang Buhay” today, July 10, the “Kadenang Ginto” actress revealed that she was among the first to know about Neil Arce’s plan to propose as she had gotten a call from the film producer weeks ahead of getting down on one knee.
“Sabi niya 'Dimps, busy ka? May sasabihin ako sa iyo.' So iniisip ko, 'Ano kaya ito?' Kasi nagugulat ako. Remember sa tagal naming magkaibigan ni Gel, may dalawa akong inabutan. So sabi ko Neil, 'Ano ba 'yun, titigil ba ako maglakad, uupo ba ako?' Ano bang kailangan kong gawin? Sabi niya, 'Hindi, magpo-propose na ako kay Gel,' she shared.
“Diyos ko, ang iyak ko! Pumalahaw ako ng iyak! Parang ako 'yung pagpo-propose-an. Sabi ko, 'Neil, thank you so much for making me so happy.' ‘Eto na naman naalala ko na naman. Naiiyak ako. Kasi, ‘di ba kapag kaibigan mo...Angel is such a good person. She deserves somebody who's going to take care of her,” she tearfully recalled.
Dimples continued, “I want her to have the best time of her life and now is the best time. Parang ramdam na ramdam ko. Sobrang alaga kasi ni Neil kay Gel. Nakakatuwa lang na naging parte ako noon.”
She also revealed that the proposal, which was done on Father’s Day, had the blessing of Angel’s father.
“He decided to talk to Daddy, and I think that is the sweetest gesture because si Daddy Angel spoke to Neil and the rest is history. The proposal happened on Father’s Day. How beautiful!”
The actress also played a huge role in the momentous occasion by getting Angel’s ring size.
“Friends kami ng mga assistant ni Gel, so tinawagan ko. Sabi ko, 'Ate punta ka nga dito, dalhan mo nga ako ng singsing ni Gel kasi gagawan ko siya ng terno ring namin.' Sabi ko 'yung sa akin 'yung may 'bestfriends' sa kanya yung 'forever,’” Dimples shared.
Neil and Angel announced their engagement last June 29 and received an overwhelming amount of congratulatory messages from their showbiz friends.
Dimples is currently seen in the hit afternoon series “Kadenang Ginto.” She will also star in Mikhail Red’s zombie thriller “Block Z” and in an upcoming film with Anne Curtis, Tony Labrusca, and Vice Ganda which will be Star Cinema’s official entry to the 2019 Metro Manila Film Festival in December.
