Kahit Puso'y Masugatan lead star Iza Calzado's boyfriend, Filipino-British Ben Wintle appeared on The Buzz (August 19) for the first time to greet the actress, who celebrated her birthday last August 12.
Ben Wintle, who is an entrepreneur, sportsman and co-founder of TrustCircle (a matchmaking website), shared on a taped interview on The Buzz that he and Iza were first introduced at a party of a common friend before going out on several dates.
Ben Wintle said that he and Iza had a lot of things in common, one reason she found the actress interesting. Both Ben and Iza were into health and fitness and they had the chance to work out, eat and travel together.
When asked what gift he would give Iza, Ben said it would be the gift of more time to get more sleep and to do all the exercise that she wants to do. He also shared his three wishes for his girlfriend.
“First is I hope that your passion continues to lead you to more fresh and challenging projects. Second, I hope that work doesn’t keep her up so late at night because I want her to stay healthy and be around for another 30 years. My last wish is that I hope she enjoys the dinner I’m gonna cook for her tonight,” he said.
Iza Calzado, who was very surprised of Ben's appearance on the Kapamilya showbiz-oriented program, thanked Ben for granting the interview.
Iza also shared how Ben planned to surprise her on her birthday with a flash mob. She recalled being inside a restaurant when the people on the other table did a dance routine.
Iza had met Ben's family while Ben met Iza's father, the late Lito Calzado when the Fil-Brit was still courting her. When asked by host Toni Gonzaga how many months (or years) Iza and Ben have been officially together, the actress refused to answer, saying that she will reserved that on her next The Buzz guesting.
