While a collective gasp occurred in the Philippines after Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff released their low-key engagement announcement (in the guise of a travel vid—SO SNEAKY) yesterday morning, one of Anne's It Girl besties, Isabelle Daza, has known all along that their coupling was indeed for keeps.
As fans and friends congratulated Anne and Erwan on social media, there was Belle, sassily owning up the title of the couples' "matchmaker." In an IG post, Belle shared a short but definitely juicy tidbit about the super private couple:
"I knew you were meant to be when you BOTH tried to make each other jealous by picking up a random stranger lol Barcelona May 2009. #proudmatchmaker"
NICE ONE, BELLE!
Back in May 2009, Anne and her barkada (Belle, Liz Uy, Bea Soriano, and Raymond Gutierrez) went on a Euro trip which apparently was the start of Anne and Erwan's love story!
Although we have yet to find out what else happened during their month-long vacay, we do know that Anne and co. went bungee jumping and attended a music festival (Could this have been the start of ErwAnne's love for music fests?!) in Spain.
We're estimating that Anne and Erwan kept their engagement on the DL for over a month, because it happened while they were on vacation in Connecticut in early November. Erwan proposed to Anne, his girlfriend of six years, at the Steep Rock Preserve surrounded by autumn leaves and trees. Good job keeping the secret, you guys!
