Being among the top athletes in the country today, it’s truly amazing how volleyball superstar and Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10 housemate Alyssa Valdez and her beloved “MVP” Kiefer Ravena are able to keep their love strong and burning in the past five years that they’ve been together, despite their hectic schedules and having to be in an LDR (long distance relationship).
Avid supporters of this “phenom” couple definitely know all too well that their romance began to bloom when they were still varsity athletes of the Ateneo de Manila University – with Alyssa as the star player of the women’s volleyball team, while Kiefer was the frontrunner of the men’s basketball team.
They went on to work together as hosts of a sports television program in another network, wherein they got closer with one another. And in October 2015, Kiefer declared that he is indeed in love with Alyssa, but they weren’t in a relationship yet as he was still courting her then during their guesting in Tonight With Boy Abunda.
A few months after, their ardent shippers were truly delighted when they both confirmed that they’re officially a couple in 2016 by posting on their respective social media accounts. Since then, people have been following their relationship and couldn’t help but gush every time they share something about themselves or the other one on social media.
On that same year, they graced an episode of Magandang Buhay wherein they got the “KiefLy” shippers kilig, especially when they exchanged sweet, heartwarming messages. As Kiefer was set to go to the United States then to chase his NBA dream, he assured Alyssa that he would definitely come back and he would make the most of their time together really worth it. In return, she expressed her all-out support for him in all his endeavors.
At the same time, the decorated basketball player was also able to show his support to her while she was still inside the house by giving her words of encouragement and cheering for her through a video message. He also touched her heart when he gifted her a shirt and photos of him and their beloved furbabies Rocky, Blake, and Louise wearing their family shirt.
They may have gone through a lot of challenges in their relationship, but they’re able to prove that their love for one another is definitely stronger and unbreakable.
Aside from playing basketball or volleyball together and being each other’s training and workout buddy, Keifer and Alyssa apparently love to spend time together, as seen in their vlogs uploaded in the official YouTube channel of the “Heartstrong Phenom of Batangas.”
