“Thank you for making every day our own little valentine’s day. (Ayy wait except for the days pala we are both epal).”
No, this is not a line from a movie or series because they are not a couple that you could catch on a teleserye. It is because of this that Alex Gonzaga and Mikee Morada’s kilig is even more genuine and adorable. Of course, supporters can always catch snippets of their love story on this gallery.
Beyond the photos, however, Alex revealed on Tonight with Boy Abunda just how healthy this relationship has been for her.
“We let each other do our thing,” is where she thinks their partnership is. Marriage is a topic that has been brought up in their relationship. So, if they will be tying the knot in the future, the couple wants to make sure that they have done everything they want to. “Individually, we are whole. We are happy,” only then can they join in union. This is why she believes that it should be “sooner but not later”.
When asked what Mikee’s best quality, Alex did not think twice to say, “He’s like my dad.” He is family orientated and don’t drink. “Pa-involve din siya,” she shared. He is not the type to meddle in other people’s business, but he wants to be in the know.
Speaking of being a family man, “I became closer to my family because of Mikee,” she admitted. He is always there to remind her to be appreciative and would even say sometimes, “Kung wala ang mommy at daddy mo, wala ka.” And that is because this is how he treats his own family, “Finally I found a man who can understand ‘yung dynamics namin as a family kasi ganoon din naman siya.”
Looking at their photo together, Alex confessed out loud that she feels lucky to have him in her life. “Pero suwerte din siya sa’kin,” she had to add.

Finally, on Magandang Buhay, Alex revealed that she and Mikee have talked about marriage. Given their age, it has come up, but they are in no hurry. They each have a time frame and set of plans, so no one is in a hurry. “Walang naiinip, walang nagmamadali,” she stated.
Big sister, Toni Gonzaga, also chimed in that Mikee is different from all the other guys Alex has been with. “Lahat may comment ako na hindi maganda,” Toni admitted. She was never sure nor confident about Alex’s previous partner. But with Mikee, it did not take long for her to see that he could be the one. “Nakita ko ‘yung change of attitude ni Alex when it comes to handling relationships,” Toni explained.
Alex used to be someone who could easily end a relationship if she did not get her way. But with Mikee, she willingly adjusts for him, something that she realized from Toni’s marriage. “Kailangan talagang mag-adjust at mag-compromise, na hindi lahat ng gusto mo kailangan makuha mo,” Alex learned.
