Why Alex Gonzaga no longer feels she’s ‘just an extension of Ate Toni’s blessing’


“Feeling ko nga I’m just an extension of her blessing,” was how Alex Gonzaga felt as the younger sister of television host and actress, Toni Gonzaga. 

On her big sister Toni’s YouTube vlog, Alex turned emotional as she thanked her 8.4 million subscribers on the platform for giving her a chance to make a name for herself.

The two sisters filmed their heart-to-heart conversation where Alex revealed that since their teen years, she has always competed for their parents’ attention.

When asked if she had anything she wanted her subscribers to know about her, Alex said that they are an answered prayer.

“You are an answered prayer kay Lord kasi di niyo alam yung pinagdaanan ko before that,” she said.

She continued to open up that she asked the Lord what would happen to her if her sister is not around anymore. 

“Iniisip ko dati na, ‘Lord, paano po pag nawala na ang ate ko, di na ako ma-be-bless katulad ng sa kanya,’ kasi feeling ko nga I’m all just an extension of her blessing. 

“Nung nabasa ko yun Joshua 1: 3-5 na sinabi niya na, ‘as I was with Moses,’ pinalitan ko lang ng, ‘as I was with Toni, I will be with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you,’” she said as she fought her tears back. 

Alex said her YouTube channel and her vlogs are answers from God confirming that He does have plans for her. 

“Yung simpleng (comment) na ‘Alex nakakatawa ka,’ ‘Siraulo ka Alex,’ or, ‘Napanood ko yung vlog mo,’ the fact na binabati nila si Mommy Pinty, sobrang sarap ng pakiramdam ko. Kasi yun yung sagot ni Lord sa akin na, ‘I told you have plans for you, I did not leave you, or di kita nakakalimutan,'” she said.
