The Kapamilya talent competition Little Big Star opened doors for Makisig Morales in 2005. The singing charmer ventured into acting and became one of his generation’s child superstars. After quite a long time in showbiz, he migrated with his family to Australia in 2014 after doing the Kapamilya series Mirabella. Makisig, now 23, is already a married man.
Makisig was last seen in the fantaserye Bagani in 2018. He then went back to Australia to live a happy, simple life with his wife and family. He said that moving to Australia was a family decision. They just fell in love with the place and thought it would be better to stay there.
Makisig and Nicole Joson met in the Philippines. They tied the knot in January 2019 in Australia where Nicole was also born and raised. People say that getting married at a young age is like leaving a party early. But the former child wonder doesn’t mind missing out as long as he’s with his wife.
“At a young age po parang mas nagiging open na kami habang bata pa on what to expect in the future. Lahat ng challenges na dumadating sa amin, kaming dalawa na ang humaharap po,” he said.
Baby plans pop up in random conversations. But savings and a new house remain their top priorities. The couple manages an online food business called “NikMak” in Sydney. They are hands-on from food preparation to delivery. The business is doing well and, thankfully, life in Australia is slowly going back to normal.
Makisig clarified that he will never leave showbiz. He just decided to slow down to be with his family. From being a child superstar in the Philippines to a married man in Sydney, Makisig said that it was a
challenging transition. Still, he was able to surpass the big adjustments, thanks to his family who made him feel at home.
The Super Inggo star misses a lot about showbiz especially the friendships built on the set. Thanks to technology, he’s able to catch up with showbiz friends like Zaijan Jaranilla, Jairus Aquino, and Paul Salas. He said humility is one of the most important lessons he learned from the industry. The former child star knows how to look back on his roots and acknowledge the people, on and off the set, who brought him to where he is today.
