Bela Padilla on story behind Dani Barretto’s engagement.
BELA PADILLA – The Kapamilya actress Bela Padilla shares the story behind the surprise wedding proposal to her best friend Dani Barretto.
Dani Barretto is officially engaged to her non-showbiz boyfriend Xavi Panlilio. The surprise wedding proposal happened last February 17 witnessed by the significant persons in their lives.
Dani and Xavi met last May 2017 during the birthday celebration of the former’s best friend, the Kapamilya actress Bela Padilla. And on their relationship, the actress certainly played a vital role for the two of them. So, in this another milestone on their relationship, Bela again helped with the successful set up.
In a report from Inquirer, Bela shared something about their relationship and the proposal. She said, “If all goes well, (which it will) I will take credit for this union because they met when I dragged Dani to La Union in May 2017.”
Bela also revealed that Xavi has actually and already disclosed his plan of proposing to Dani last year to her. She indicated, “Last year, her boyfriend told me he was gonna propose. I might have looked like I had a stroke because he quickly said “but it’s not till late next year.”
And she knew then that it was for real and really happening when she was added in a “secret group chat” consisting all the closest friends and family members of Dani. She even recalled about how she wanted to punch her best friend’s face one time when she received a text from her saying that “he is not proposing”.
And that fateful day of February 17 came and then it all happened. They set up an “interview” with Dani teaming up with the Cornerstone and Spring Films. She “blindly volunteered” to pick her up then.
“The next thing I do remember is tearing up when the door opened and her mom and sisters walked in. The weight on my shoulders from keeping a secret from my best friend for three weeks finally left me and I was able to step back and watch her at her happiest,” Padilla further added.
