Alex Gonzaga has tied the knot with her non-showbiz fiancé Mikee Morada.
The actress revealed this via a video titled “We’re Married by Alex Gonzaga” on her YouTube channel uploaded on Sunday, January 17.
“Kinasal na po kami. Isa na po akong maybahay at isa na po akong wife,” Alex said.
She revealed that the wedding happened in November, in an intimate ceremony attended only by family and close friends.
However, Alex and Mikee chose to keep it a secret for a while so they can “celebrate it together as a family muna.”
She added, “And syempre, alam namin yung timing din. Saka alam namin na may pandemic. We just wanted to keep it to ourselves for a little while.”
“Masaya kami. Alam ko na OA, pero masaya. Happily married kami, guys.”
Alex also quipped, “Finally nakakatabi ko na siyang matulog. Nakakatulog na siya sa kwarto ko.”
Alex admitted that the wedding is “for our parents.” “Kasi, syempre, yung nangyayari ngayon, it’s very uncertain. Hindi natin alam kung kailan matatapos yung pandemic. So syempre, gusto namin to seal the deal na andito kaming lahat, andito tayong lahat, nakaka-celebrate,” she explained.
“Okay, fine, aminin ko na. Gusto ko na kasi siyang makatabi sa kama. Pero ayaw pa ng mommy at daddy ko. So sabi ko, ikasal na lang. So ngayon, okay na,” she joked.
Turning serious, Alex said that while she is already in the “right age” to settle down, “kung ano yung request ng mga magulang ko, ginalang ni Mikee and nirespeto namin.”
Alex said they hope to hold a “bigger wedding” next year.
Alex and Mikee started dating in 2017. The two announced that they were engaged in January 2020.
