When Alexa Ilacad graced the cover of Star Magic’s SLAY last month, KD Estrada admitted he was blown away when he first saw his love team partner’s cover pictorial.

“I just want to say that I’m so proud of Alexa and my initial reaction just seeing her on the cover, ang ganda niya. She looks heavenly. She looks like an angel.

“I just admired her so much for being so strong din during the shoot kasi I know sometimes when she feels down I want to be there for her but I couldn’t be there for her every time kasi walang signal. But the fact that she pushed through and the fact that she was able to do it amazingly, nakaka-proud lang.


“I’m happy that she’s my partner. It just inspires me,” he shared during the FLEX mediacon earlier this month.

Last May 14, KD was officially announced as the first ever cover boy of Star Magic’s FLEX magazine and admitted that his Run To Me leading lady was one of the first people he shared the good news with.

“Alexa’s happy that I’m taking this kasi as a love team, she took on SLAY. She did it really well. I think it’s only right na there’s a boy version of SLAY which is FLEX. When she heard about this na-excite din siya. She’s excited rin to see what I have to offer,” he said.

After becoming an official love team this year after their stint on Pinoy Big Brother, KD clarified the notion that he and Alexa are just a love team.

“Sa totoo lang, I don’t think me and Alexa are just a love team. I think that’s a misconception a lot of people get online na love team lang yan.

“We had this connection even before we became a love team. So I don’t see why people see it as only that. Kasi it’s more than that eh.

“What I built with Alexa is a genuine connection, a genuine friendship, a genuine partnership that I know I can always rely on. That’s why I’m always with her, that’s why we’re always together.

“The only way we could make this last is if we just support each other in whatever we do. Support, love, care, trust, the usual things in a relationship,” he explained.

Even though KDLex fans would love for them to be together in real life, KD revealed why he and Alexa are not in a rush to make things official just yet.

“Sa totoo lang we both get tired, not of each other but with everything happening. Kasi it could get a lot sa totoo lang.

“Kasi when we got out (of PBB) there was opportunity after opportunity and we thank God for that and it’s tiring. But we’re just human and nakakapagod siya.

“As of now, a relationship is not really ideal kasi parehas kaming busy. Baka maguluhan kami lalo. I think if you have healthy relationship, you have a healthy partnership, both of you are thriving, I think you have all the rights to flex that.

“If you want to keep it private, go lang. Pero if you want to shout it out to the world that I love this person and this person loves me back or something, then why not? You flex that.

“Well since we’re both in showbiz, we both understand na sometimes we won’t be together. Sometimes our projects will be magkahiwalay or iba ipa-partner sa amin.

“But I think yung key lang is trust. Tiwala lang sa isa’t isa. I think that’s the key to every relationship. Tiwala, communication tapos the rest follows. Respecting each other’s boundaries, ganyan. Those are the top three things that I put when handling this relationship,” he said.
