It has been almost four years of married life for the Volantes - Nyoy and Mikkie, who began their love story with their shared passion for theater acting. The popular singer-songwriter has also been a good stepdad to Sophie, Mikkie’s daughter from her previous relationship.
Mikkie Bradshaw-Volante, a theater actress, worked with Nyoy in the most recent Filipino adaptation of the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical “Kinky Boots” with Nyoy playing the role of Lola/Simon, a cabaret drag queen from Northampton, England, while Mikkie reprised the role of Lauren, a shoe factory worker.
We can witness their blissful married life with these photos wherein they are seen travelling, attending gatherings, and celebrating different occasions. Mikkie was actually the inspiration behind one of the most recent compositions by her husband, with a line that goes, “Pakinggan mo ang awit ko na naisulat dahil sa kagandahan mo.” Listen to the very sweet composition sung by Nyoy himself.

Mikkie has definitely made her name in the world of Philippine theater with her notable performances in several musicals and plays including “The Sound of Music," “Nine," “Alladin," and “The Addams Family.” Mikkie received applause and compliments for her performance on the Olivier Award-winning play, "Blackbird." No wonder their daughter Sophie has been recently attached and in love with theater acting just like her parents.
