"Now I have a solid person in my life who I can really count on."
These were the words of Alexa Ilacad as she described her friendship with fellow Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10 celebrity housemate KD Estrada.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Alexa relayed how they became each other's strength inside the PBB house.
"It was a two-way thing. If he got strength from me, I got strength from him, too. Our bond was just so genuine. From the very start, we had this really, really strong connection. We are the only ones who understood each other, and who wouldn’t get tired of each other,” Alexa said.
The actress added, “Inside the house, where everything is so stressful, honestly — mentally, spiritually, emotionally, physically, with all the challenges — it’s a giant blessing for me that KD was there. If he’s thankful for me, I’m thankful for him even more.”
Alexa remarked that KD is her "greatest takeaway" from her PBB journey.
"It’s so rare to find someone that you just connect with, someone who gets you, and who assures you na hindi siya mapapagod sa ‘yo,” she stated.
Now that both of them are in the outside world, Alexa shared that their strong bond remains the same.
“Kung paano kami sa loob, ganoon din kami sa labas. We’re still looking out for each other, always kinukumusta ‘yung isa’t isa. Obviously, we really enjoy each other’s company. I’d say we’re both growing, we’re both in a really good place right now,” she relayed.
