It was a love at first sight for prized singer-actor Nyoy Volante and his lovely wife Mikkie Bradshaw.
In their guesting on Kris TV, they admitted that they immediately got attracted to one another when their eyes first met during the rehearsals of Rak of Aegis’ first production in 2012 and they eventually became really close friends.
There was no formal courtship that ensued since they’d been together almost everyday and they habitually bond with their co-actors after their practices. But one day, the Tawag ng Tanghalan hurado realized that he couldn’t keep his feelings for her anymore, thus he finally confessed. Unexpectedly, she also feels the same way too and the rest is history.
They tied the knot on February 24, 2016 at the Manila Cathedral and are now happy parents to Sophie, Mikee’s eight-year-old daughter from a past relationship, who is now a theater actress.
Since they were colleagues first before being partners-in-life, they divulged in a media interview that they became each other’s number one fan and worst critic.
Aside from that, did you know that the ever-supportive Mikkie was also the one who did the makeup of Nyoy for the award-winning play Kinky Boots, wherein he portrayed the lead character that is a drag queen? She subsequently became a part of the production’s encore.
Just like any other married couple, they have had misunderstandings as well. But their love for the family they have formed is what binds them tightly.
Continue creating sweet music together, Nyoy and Mikkie!
