Alex Gonzaga and Mikee Morada
We all know that Alex Gonzaga and fiancé Mikee Morada are gearing up for their much-awaited wedding. But before that happens, the lovely couple shares their love story to none other than Alex’s sister, Toni Gonzaga.
Toni recalls that in 2015, Alex promised to remain single for a year and devote that whole time for self-love. She could also remember the day when Piolo Pascual headed to their dressing room looking for Alex. She didn’t know what the two talked about until Toni learned Alex and Mikee’s love story.
Mikee confessed that he repeatedly asked Piolo, his good friend, to introduce him to Alex. He just knew they would click. Mikee got Alex’s mobile number but he was still too shy to make a move. Then, he decided to tag along with Piolo to ASAP Natin ‘To, hoping to finally meet his crush. The long-overdue encounter finally happened.
Mikee always takes relationships seriously. He enters one in hopes of settling down with that person someday. And with Alex, it was easy to see where the relationship was heading to. They just click as true soulmates would. They bring out the best in each other. Alex mentions that her fiancé inspires her to be selfless and become a better version of herself.
Others might wonder how they jive, knowing that Alex is the goofy type while Mikee seems a serious guy. The bride-to-be reveals that Mikee is also a joker and is even more jologs than her. She adds that Mikee has the tendency to please others, and that’s one thing she doesn’t like about him.
Mikee thinks Alex is more showy but also the one who likes to quarrel. He says he doesn’t like Alex’s habit of waking up late.
The engaged couple’s families recently got together for the Filipino tradition of ‘pamamanhikan.’ Mikee made sure that it will push through. They didn’t want their families to get left behind the wedding plans, saying it would be a sign of disrespect. It was Mikee’s parents who kept on reminding him about the occasion.
As the wedding day gets closer, though the couple hasn’t shared much detail about it, they just couldn’t hide the excitement. Alex is looking forward to finally sleeping beside and waking up next to Mikee. No more video calls to tell each other ‘good night.’ Mikee is likewise excited to be Alex’s husband, raise a family with her, and grow old together.
Asked if she’s willing to leave everything behind at Mikee’s command, Alex says ‘yes.’ She trusts Mikee’s judgment. She knows he would always have a valid reason behind major life-changing decisions.
As advice to those still looking for ‘the one,’ Alex highlights the dangers of keeping a long list of qualifications. “As much as possible, i-lessen natin ang ideals natin kasi baka kaya ‘yun ang rason kung bakit hindi natin napapansin na baka nandiyan na pala sa tabi mo ‘yung para sa’yo.”
