The 27-year-old Italian singer announced on his Instagram their engagement with a video of what looked like their engagement party. He said, “Thank you for being amazing, baby. I love you so much.” Bella replied, “I love you so much.”
Ben added, “Yay! We’re getting married. Celebration in Italy and in America, both.”
Bella is aready famous in the entertainment industry since her Disney days. But not everybody is familiar with Benjamin, who goes by Ben. Here are some things you should know about him:
Benjamin is an Italian singer and actor who recently made his acting debut in a film starring none other than his fiancée. After revealing their engagement on his Instagram Story, he also shared a love letter he gave to Bella, which he wrote on the back of the movie’s script.
1. He’s a singer and actor
Ben started his career in the entertainment world as a singer. He and his friend Federico Rossi formed a duo, Benji & Fede but he decided to go solo in 2021 using B3N as his stage name.
Meanwhile, he decided to try his hand at acting and started filming Time is Up with none other than his fiancée, Bella. They started filming in November last year. He wrote on his Instagram, “Shooting my first Movie, making my new Music, working and living side by side with my partner in crime. 2020 has been crazy, 2021 is going to be f*****g insane.”
He also told Icon magazine in Italian this year, “When they proposed it to me, I was not convinced to accept. Bella encouraged me. Making a starring film has been one of the most difficult and rewarding challenges of my life.”
The couple also star together in his music video of “Finché le Stelle non Brillano” [“Until the Stars Shine”].- Advertisement -
2. He and Bella ace LDR
Ben lives in Modena, Italy but he told Icon Magazine, “I try to spend about six months in Los Angeles and six in Italy every year. Living there with Bella is beautiful, we have our protected place in the hills where we enjoy our normality, a little different from normal here.”
However, he wasn’t able to visit her in the US for a while last year because of the pandemic. In July 2020, the actress shared a photo of the two of them on Instagram with the caption, “After 5 months reunited & it feels so good [red heart emoji]. where shall we go next ??since ben isn’t allowed in America yet… and I can’t go to Italy unless I have a work permit there.”
3. The couple met at Coachella
Ben shared, “Our journey together began nearly two years ago in Palm Springs. We met at Coachella, and I immediately knew she was different from all the other women I met in my life. With Bella mixing private and work has become simple, we are accomplices at 360 degrees: it was she who asked me to participate in the video clip of ‘Finché le Stelle non Brillano’ [‘Until the Stars Shine’], which gave me immense pleasure as she was the inspiring muse of the song.”
The singer paid tribute to her on their anniversary in April 2020 writing, “About one year ago, out of the blue you landed like a UFO alien in my very normal Italian popstar life and f****d up all the plans I had for a outrageous Coachella weekend and summer in Ibiza and Mykonos. Safe to say this was no doubt the best thing that ever happened in my life, I’m forever grateful to you my beautiful little girl, god bless the moment I put aside my shyness to randomly text you and say ‘let’s hang out.'”
He added, “Thank you for being yourself no matter what and teaching me the meaning of love and life: you are the smartest, funniest, sexiest, craziest and cutest creature that ever walked planet earth. I miss you so much, you deserve all the love and flowers my heart and bank account can afford. BTW I’m writing so many songs about you, one ballad after the other I am now to softest [sic] and most romantic b*tch ever and I’m proud to embrace it. When I’m back in LA I’m gonna serenade you to the point you will kick me out of your crib. You might have to call the police or I will continue on the sidewalk singing, shouting and sweating under the sun like Bruce Springsteen on stage after a 3 hours long concert, and that’s because the neighbourhood and all the entire damn world needs to know how much I Love you. Ben.”
Congratulations, Ben and Bella!
