Matet de Leon: Little girl no more

Apr 4, 2007
Even before the wedding, Matet—who had a reputation for being difficult—admitted that Mickey had been a positive influence on her life: "Mas napapabuti niya ako." The showbiz's little girl married her prince last March 20, 2004 at the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish Church in Quezon City.

Matet de Leon met basketball player John Michael "Mickey" Estrada, of the National University Bulldogs, at a Tomas Morato bar in 2003. The young actress was instantly attracted and wasn't shy about making the first move. So she got his cellphone number from a mutual friend.

They met on a Friday, went out on a date on Saturday, and were officially a couple by Monday.

On February 24, 2004, seven months after their casual meeting, Mickey and a blissfully pregnant Matet tied the knot in a civil wedding. The church wedding followed the next month.
