Bela has family in the UK. Born Krista Elyse Sullivan, she is the daughter of Meg Carino of the Padilla showbiz clan and Cornelio Sullivan, who is British.
In the actress’ latest vlog, Bela explained that there were a number of reasons why she left the Philippines to live in the UK.
“I didn’t move just to be with Norman although it does make it so much easier to be in London. At least now we are quite close to each other and he’s here a lot. I go to Switzerland a lot. It’s definitely a big jump and a lot easier. But I did not move here specifically for that.”
“There are many reasons why I moved here. One of them is because I feel like the world stopped during the pandemic and I have been looking for something new to do in my life. I feel like at this point, I will be more productive here. It just makes more sense for me to live here.”
The Camp Sawi actress also addressed one of her followers’ questions. That is if she plans to settle in London for good. Bella said that is something she cannot really answer.
“I am a free spirit. I like traveling and going to different places. My mom is still based in the Philippines, my dad is in Thailand, Norman lives in Switzerland. I am currently here. There are so many places I could be. So I can’t say if I’m gonna settle here for good but it wouldn’t be a bad thing if I do.”
At the moment, Bela is happy and excited about exploring her new life. The actress shares how she feels she had to grow up a bit even more after moving.
