It may be hard to see pass his bulky physique and we can’t blame you. After all, he’s an MMA champion for a reason. But believe us when we say: underneath all those muscles is actually a romantic guy and these Instagram photos with his wife Jessica are your evidence.
From making silly faces and sticking his tongue out to showing off a big smile on his face while standing next to the love of his life, Brandon Vera has uncovered a side that you would never see inside the cage. Of course, a bonus in his marriage is probably having a work out buddy. “Teamwork makes the dream work!!!” he even wrote in the captions of a gym selfie. So, if that’s the best part, then what’s the toughest part?
On Tonight with Boy Abunda, the truth got even more real as he opened up about his biggest struggle as a husband. If he had to rate himself, he feels that an eight or eight and a half is a fitting score. The reason behind this is his hard head. Brandon confessed that he has to be shown or told at least three times before it sticks in his mind.
It’s a big source of stress for their partnership. While he has learned a lot in life, especially when it comes to changing and adapting to situations, his stubbornness might just be too great to overcome. “Being big headed is something that I’m just gonna have to fight with for the rest of my life,” he admitted.
Luckily, there is hope. “I didn’t know that I could love you more,” was all he could say to his Jessica. Brandon shared that every day gives him more of a reason to love and appreciate her. So, maybe for her, his hard head can become softer over time.
