While her character in Pamilya Ko as Mercy Alvarez who appeared early this year was in an abusive relationship with her good-for-nothing partner Tonio (DJ Durano), the married life of sexy actress Sunshine Garcia in real life is actually far different for she’s very much happy in the arms of her good-looking and kind husband Alex Castro.
They’ve been together for five years now and just celebrated their first anniversary as husband and wife last March 2. Aside from their respective professional commitments, the couple also juggles their time as hands-on parents to Alex’s son in a previous relationship and their firstborn, the cuddly Baby Axel.
As many of us arguably know, the beginning of their romance was immediately marred with controversy. But they were able to conquer it and showed the world that nothing or no one could ever bring their strong relationship down.
Throughout their four years of dating, the two indeed enjoyed each other’s company as they roamed not only here in the Philippines, but also around the world. Taking a stroll in their respective Instagram pages we could spot a slew of travel photos of the jetsetter couple. They had toured around United Kingdom, France, The Netherlands, Italy, Japan, and Singapore, and bask in the sandy beaches of Siargao, Palawan, and Boracay.
Both of them might be busy in their careers – Sunshine as an actress-dancer and Alex as board member in the fourth district of Bulacan – as well as in taking care of their one-year-old son, but they make sure to still allot portion of their hectic schedules with one another and spend quality time together, as what they revealed in their interview in Magandang Buhay in September 2019.

But more than the sweetness that they exhibit in their photos, such as the ones we included in this gallery, what makes them one of the couples that are worth looking up for is with how supportive they are of each other’s endeavors. Sunshine, despite not wanting to have a partner who’s in showbiz and/or politics, has been supportive of her “hubby”, while Alex, in return, didn’t hinder his “wifey” from accepting showbiz projects.
Stay sweet and strong, Sunshine and Alex!
