Dimples Romana played a vital role in Neil Arce’s proposal to Angel Locsin in that the “Kadenang Ginto” actress secretly got the latter’s ring size upon his request.
“I am really overjoyed with how Neil takes care of Angel,” Dimples said in an interview. “ Knowing Gel, she’s not used to being taken cared of being a woman of her own. What I mean is that she can handle herself yet it’s still nice that there is somebody like Neil who looks after her.”
Asked how she was able to deliver on the request, Dimples laughed.
“Neil called me. He said, ‘Dimps, I will propose to Angel.’ I cried as if I am the one being proposed to,” she began.
“I really found time to do it. I was warned by Neil not to tell Gel’s assistant about the proposal because she might tell Angel about it. So, what I did involved some acting and a bit of drama. I went to Gel’s house and told her assistant, ‘Can you bring some rings, ‘te.’ I said I was gonna ask a jeweler to make best friend terno ring. Knowing Angel and I are good friends, she believed me.”
Upon receipt of a ring, she traced the outline on a receipt to get its size.
“Then I sent it to Neil, telling him to be careful with it. ‘Neil, don’t lose it.’ ‘Okay Dimps, I will take care of it.’”
Dimples became very excited as the arrival of ring drew near.
“Neil would call me everyday because I think I was the only one who knew about the proposal. ‘Dimps, I feel like I’m having an asthma attack. Since yesterday, I can’t breathe, I can’t sleep. I want to propose already!’ But I told him, ‘Find the perfect timing!’”
And so he did. And the rest is history.
