The public knows how protective Toni Gonzaga is to younger sister, Alex Gonzaga, and the latter would often compare her to their Mommy Pinty. So, when it comes to matters of the heart, Toni always has a say.
In this TWBA interview aired in December 2018, Toni had to admit that she disliked the guys Alex dated in the past. There was even a time when she witnessed how Alex got so broken and devastated over one man,
“When I was pregnant, she went inside my room tapos umiyak siya sa harap ko na talagang pa-MMK. Sabi ko, ‘Bakit ka umiiyak?’ Nararamdaman ko na love life ‘to. Sabi niya, ‘Ate, hindi ko na kaya! Sobrang sakit!’”
Toni didn’t want her ‘sissum’ to go through the same pain. So, she asked her to stop introducing another guy unless he is ‘the one.’ Toni would always have negative impressions about the guys dating Alex but Mikee Morada was different. She was unexplainably confident in him.
“Nu’ng may idea na ako na dadalhin niya si Mikee, pero hindi ko pa kilala si Mikee at all, ayaw ko ‘yung notion na may dadalhin siya. Lagi ‘yan, lahat ng nakilala ko, may mga pahaging akong masasakit na salita. Kay
Mikee, wala akong sinabi,” shared Toni.
“Hindi siya nagalit,” Alex chimed in.
So, Toni met Mikee after she gave birth to her son, Seve, “Kapapanganak ko pa lang, namamanas ako at ang pangit ko talaga, ‘Ate dadalhin ko diyan si Mikee.’ For some reason, nag-yes ako.”
“Alam mo Tito Boy, si Mikee pa pinagupit niya ng umbilical,” Alex joked, sending everyone in laughter.
Toni knew by this time that Mikee is ‘the one’ for Alex. She felt it in her heart. When asked about Alex and Mikee’s future wedding, Toni admitted, “I don’t feel it anytime soon. But I feel like it’s around the corner.” Alex had to say that she and Mikee have always been on the same page.
Fast forward to 2021, Alex and Mikee are now officially married!
