It's been two years since Bela Padilla and her non-showbiz boyfriend Norman Ben Bay became a couple.
On February 22, the actress marked their second anniversary by sharing sweet snaps with her Swiss-Italian boyfriend from one of their beach trips.
"Happy second anniversary my travel buddy, fellow foodie, Billie Eilish album reviewer, master of plants (specifically chillies and citrus plants), and to the person who would still hang out with me even if there was a man park where men randomly talk about Marvel 😂❤️ you make my days brighter! 🥰 Also, how cool is it that our second anniversary is on 2.22.2022?!" she wrote in the caption.
It was in October 2020 when Bela first posted about Norman on her Instagram account, fueling speculations about her new relationship.
In an interview in March 2021, Bela finally opened up about their relationship, sharing that she met Norman in St. Gallen, Switzerland — the same place where she shot her film with Carlo Aquino, titled “Meet Me in St. Gallen."
The two have been in a long distance relationship since, up until the actress finally decided to move to London in late 2021.
Bela, however, clarified that she did not move to the UK solely for her boyfriend.
“I didn’t move just to be with Norman, although it does make it so much easier to be in London," she said. "At least now we are quite close to each other and he’s here a lot. I go to Switzerland a lot. It’s definitely a big jump and a lot easier. But I did not move here specifically for that," she explained.
