The Broken Marriage Vow actress Rachel Alejandro is happily in love with her husband of 11 years, Carlos Santa Maria.
Despite being a public personality, Rachel doesn’t constantly share about her life with her husband. Although when she does on social media, it’s absolutely adorable. Sometimes they’re on far trips together, while other times, they’re just on a romantic walk or having a chill date. There are also days Rachel just wants to post and express love to her “favorite person” in the whole wide world.
But like most relationships, Rachel and Carlos experience their own trials of love. Before they got married, Rachel shared in her Magandang Buhay interview in October 2021 that they were in a long-distance relationship. And at one point, they even broke up because it was difficult. But they later got back together

When they were together again, it wasn’t long before they decided to get married. After all, they knew they already found “the one” in each other. Rachel also explained why the decision to get married already was easy for them, “Gano’n yata ‘pag long distance. Kailangan mo mag-decide. ‘Di pwedeng forever and ever ‘di kayo magkasama.”
Now 11 years strong together, they still have long-distance set-ups because of work, but they are committed to each other more than ever. They make sure to catch up daily, support each other, and make time for their relationship. And, as we can see, they’re glued to each other when they’re finally physically together.
Rachel recently penned this message for Carlo on her Instagram account during their 11th anniversary: “I know I’m predictable and transparent, but I hope I can still surprise you like I did back then, that your heart still beats faster when I’m close. Because you still do that for me and more. I love you. Happy 11th anniversary, Carlos Santamaria!”
How sweet! Rachel shares more snippets of their love on her social media from time to time, and it just gives netizens a good dose of kilig! You can check out some of their lovely photos in this gallery.
