MANILA, Philippines – Instead of putting the issue to rest, “Umagang Kay Ganda” host Iya Villania neither confirmed nor denied that she is engaged to long-time boyfriend Drew Arellano, fueling speculations that they are set to get hitched.

In an interview on Wednesday’s episode of “Kris TV,” Villania was asked by the show’s host, Kris Aquino, if Arellano asked for her hand in marriage during their trip abroad.

Villania and Arellano traveled together to France, Spain and Italy.

“Secret,” she said, drawing cheers from Aquino, her fellow guests, and the studio audience.

“I’m not confirming anything, but I’m not denying. Wala pa naman kasi kayong nakikita [na singsing] so hindi niyo rin pwedeng sabihin [that I’m engaged],” she added.

Villania and Arellano, also a TV host, have been going steady for eight years.
