    A month after they tied the knot in the U.S., Fil-American KC Montero (Casey Montero Miller in real life) and his girlfriend of five years, beauty queen Stephanie Dods, shared photos from their wedding day.

    Introducing Stephanie to the world, KC, 41, captioned their photo with a sweet message:

    “They say that every great love has a story, and mine began the day I met Stephanie 5 years ago. When my forever began.“In the 42 years of my life I’ve made many decisions and at times have felt lost. But every decision, whether right or wrong, has lead me down a unique path that has lead me to her, my wife. 

    “On September 9th, 2019, I married my best friend. She’s the person I plan vacations with just to realise that we never really wanted to leave home in the first place, the one person who calls out my shit and brings me back to earth. A person who isn’t afraid to be honest with me and makes me want to be honest with her.

    “She’s the one who loves me more than I’ve ever been loved before and never afraid to show it or feel it. She’s the one who picked me up after my father passed, let me cry and at the same time made me strong. She became my reason ‘why’.. why i work, why I smile, why I laugh and why I can finally sleep. The reason why I’m happy to go home after a long day knowing she’s on the other side of that door. 

    “Every doubt, every question disappears when I look into her eyes. She is my home. She is my wife.”
