The actress-host began the vlog by acknowledging how her followers had questioned why she has not uploaded a YouTube video for a while. She also pointed out that in an Instagram question-and-answer, a lot of them were asking when will be the big date of their marriage.
It could be recalled that Mikee proposed to Alex last January 2020 in Hong Kong.
“Madalas ninyong tinatanong sa amin ni Mikee is ‘Kailan ba ang kasal?’ [at] sasagutin na namin ’yan,” Alex said. “Nag-vlog ako 2017, one year palang kami ni Mikee nag-de-date noon. So, parang kasama kayo sa relationship namin at nag-grow together tayo.”
“I wouldn’t be who I am today if it weren’t for you and nagbigay sa akin ng purpose in life so I’m very very thankful sa inyong lahat. So, kailan ba ang kasal natin?” she asked Mikee, who was also present in the vlog.
Alex, then, made the surprising revelation that they already tied the knot last November 2020.
“Isa na ho akong maybahay at isa na ho akong wife,” she said. “Mrs. Morada na ako. [...] November kami kinasal ni Mikee.”
They wed in an intimate ceremony held in Alex’s home in their small altar with only their parents and close family members present.
Alex apologized for not sharing the news immediately to her followers, saying they wanted to simply celebrate the occasion as a family and because there was a pandemic going on.
“We just wanted to keep it for ourselves for a little while to celebrate kaya mister ko na ’tong mokong na ’to,” she said.
She also teased that she will unveil full details of the wedding to her followers soon.
“We just wanna thank our family ’cause the moment we said na we are gonna get married, they were all very supportive,” Alex recalled. “Lahat sila pumunta dito, the immediate family.”
For Alex and Mikee, they believed the wedding was for their parents because they wanted to let them know that their family is still there, being able to celebrate a milestone despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alex quipped, at one point, that she wanted to get married so she can have Mikee by her side in bed at night.
“Kasi, sa totoo lang, nasa tamang edad naman na rin kami ni Mikee,” she said. “Kahit nasa tamang edad na kami, kung ano ’yong request ng magulang ko, lalo na ’yong magulang ko, ginalang ni Mikee at nirespeto namin na kung sakali man na gusto namin magsama, maikasal kami so kinasal kami and after ng one night na natulog siya, okay na.”
The couple also showed their wedding ring and thanked all the people who made their wedding possible.
Alex, then, told a story that there was a time in her life that all her prayers to the Lord were never answered, including having that special someone.
“You just have to wait for God’s perfect time,” she advised those searching for their special someone. “Ibibigay niya talaga kung ano ’yong request mo. Eksakto.”
“Sabi ko, gusto ko ng lalaking naka-cap,” she said in jest. ”Gusto ko ng boy next door, gusto ko ’yong ganyang type [na] naka-salamin, gusto ko parang daddy ko. Para siyang ’yong daddy ko.”
As a newly married couple, Alex explained her and Mikee’s set-up, saying they are only allowed to be in one roof on weekends.
“Pero, yes we are married. We’re very happy,” she said. “Ewan ko kung nasa honeymoon stage pa lang kami pero grabe talaga. Nagkakagulo ang puso namin sa kaligayahan.”
The couple, then, reenacted their vows for their viewers and wished them well for an even better 2021.
Alex ended the video by sharing clips of their wedding day. She also said they plan to do a bigger wedding this year.
Alex, 32, has been together with Mikee for four years.
