Before she leaves their home in Taytay, Rizal to go into a taping bubble for a few weeks for a new movie project, Alex Gonzaga said she already prepared in advance her gifts for her mommy Pinty and elder sister Toni for Mother’s Day. The 31-year-old vlogger, who tied the knot with Lipa City councilor Mikee Morada last November, said the moms in their family actually requested for very simple things. She revealed the gifts during her launch as the new Shopee Princess during the Shopee 5.5 Brands Festival Online Media Event held last May 8.
“Actually ang gift ko kay mommy Pinty, kasi bawal na ako lumabas dahil last day ko na before my lock-in taping so dapat may quarantine today. Nagpa-food lang ako dito sa bahay namin tapos may pina-re-request ang mommy na patungan ng cellphone at saka ng tablet so yun yun,” she shared.
Known to share a very close bond with her only sister Toni and her nephew Seve, Alex said she won’t be able to visit them before she starts working on her movie. “Baka i-text ko na lang yun (laughs). Dahil hindi na ako masyado nakakapunta dun hindi ko na alam talaga kung ano yung gusto niya. At saka ang ate isa rin yun sa online shopping lalo na sa bahay. So ang request niya sa akin is just food so magpapadala lang ako ng food sa kanya,” she said.
Aside from being part of a daily noontime show, Alex said she looks forward to acting in a movie which will be directed by Ted Boborol for the first time this year. “So, we’ll be doing a movie and meron akong nagawa na movie na actually last year with my sister. It was written and directed by Vic Solomon. It was supposed to be for MMFF last year pero hindi natuloy. So yun yung mga movies na naka-lineup sa akin. Of course, I have Lunch Out Loud every 12 noon sa TV5,” she said.
