Alex Gonzaga and her fiancé Mikee Morada marked an important milestone in their relationship as an engaged couple. Recently, both of their families met for what Filipinos called "pamamanhikan."
Alex shared a glimpse of the "pamamanhikan" on her YouTube channel, which coincidentally at the same time she is celebrating her third year anniversary on YouTube.
"Right now kaya ako nag-video dahil first time my family and Mikee's family will meet together dito sa bahay namin. I am very, very excited. Dadalhin namin kayo sa preparation para sa pagdating ng aming mga kapamilya. Kaya ito na lang naisip ko how to celebrate with you guys [for my YouTube 3rd anniversary]," Alex said in her vlog.
Both of their families shared a sumptuous dinner at Alex's family home.
"Gusto ko talagang i-share sa inyo ang milestone sa buhay namin ni Mikee and milestone rin sa buhay ko na nag-meet talaga 'yung parents namin," Alex said.
Thank you for last night. I know i was busy for #AlwaysGwithOPPOA9 shoots and you were just patiently waiting for me at the side. You could’ve rested at home or be somewhere else but you came and held my hand just because. i really appreciate you roti! #Abscbnball2019 #AlwaysGwithAlexG
Before concluding the vlog, Alex extended her gratitude to her subscribers for supporting her vlog for three years and up to this time that she is already engaged.
"To all the netizens who have been watching my vlog since day one, thank you, thank you. I love you. And thank you for sharing the milestones and important parts of my life with me on this channel," she said.
Alex and Mikee got engaged in December 2019 during their trip to Hong Kong.
Alex also documented the proposal in her vlog.
“Thank you for watching, I’m really, really happy to share this with you. Actually ‘yun ang una sinabi ko kay Mikee na if ever man na magpro-propose siya sana may video dahil ang laking blessing kayong lahat sa akin and si Mikeee is isa sa mga big blessing din sa buhay ko,” Alex said in her engagement video uploaded a few months ago.
