It was only in late 2019 when Melissa revealed her relationship with Michael to the public. Back in November, she greeted him on his birthday and called him her “answered prayer”, although she did not initially share with fans and friends his name.

“Happy Happy Birthday my Love.!!! You are my answered prayer. Thank you for showing me how love is supposed to be, for taking care of us and I Cant wait to see what the future holds,” she said. “I hope and pray that all of your hopes, prayers and dreams come true, that you find peace, happiness and success in all you do. Basta ako (As for me), I’ll be right beside you.”
