“Any girl would be lucky to have a man like you,” declared actress Alexa Ilacad of her on-screen partner, KD Estrada, via a post on social media.
Alexa and KD first became close when they both became housemates on Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10. They each had to face their own issues, but even then, they already developed a special bond. Not only do they share a love for music, they also found comfort in each other as friends and confidantes.
In her Instagram stories, Alexa took the opportunity to express her gratitude to KD.
“When I’m hurt, I know you feel double. When people walk all over me, you’re always ready to go to war for me,” wrote Alexa.
“Thank you for always protecting me, for being my safe space, and for being strong when I can’t fight for myself – since day 1,” she added.
Given their natural chemistry, it wasn’t a hardship for the two to be paired in projects after their PBB stint. KDLex, as their fans call them, worked together on the iWantTFC original series Run To Me. They also had a digital concert and have collaborated on songs.
But their closeness goes way beyond work. KD himself has stated that their connection is real.
“We had this connection even before we became a love team,” said KD in a previous interview. “What I built with Alexa is a genuine connection, a genuine friendship, a genuine partnership that I know I can always rely on.”
Their closeness has even extended to an exchange of jewelry and special gifts that has fans wondering if there was something more than friendship.
Neither KD nor Alexa have denied that they share a special relationship, but they did clarify that they are not a couple just yet. In her recent vlog, Alexa reiterated this.
“So wala pa naman po akong boyfriend. … But I think obvious naman na, luma-love life na tayo ngayon,” she said. “But wala pa po. Coming soon, abangan.”
She did admit that they were exclusively dating, but clarified that they were not a couple yet.
To those who remained skeptical, Alexa held her ground. She was not about to be pressured into saying that she was in a relationship when she wasn’t.
“Please, enough about this. Pagod na po akong ipaintindi sa inyo kung ano ibig sabihin ng exclusively dating,” Alexa responded. “Gusto niyong aaminin ko na kami na, eh sa hindi pa nga po talaga.”
