In an interview with Nelson Canlas on 24 Oras, Bea talked about her decision to go public with the relationship.
"It wasn't as if masyado ko siyang planado or masyado ako nag-hold back. It just came out naturally."
The 33-year-old actress added that it wasn't an easy choice given her past relationship experiences.
"It's not like I was trying to hide it. I think I was trying to be careful kasi given my past experience, siyempre gusto ko masiguro muna kung saan siya pupunta bago gawing official."
Despite being more open about her relationship with Dominic, Bea insists on keeping certain details of her love life out of the public's eye.
"Even sa mga past relationships ko, hindi naman ako super open about it. I think most treasured moments ng isang relationship ay yung mga moments na hindi shared sa social media and I want to keep it that way."
