Alden was born as Richard Reyes Faulkerson, Jr. in Santa Rosa City, Laguna, Philippines on the 2nd of January, 1992. He was born as the younger of two sons to father Richard Peralta Faulkerson Sr. and mother Rosario Reyes, both of which had Filipino ethnicity. As a child, he studied at the Paco Catholic School in Paco, Manila where his thirst for acting started to rise. His mother was one who inspired and guided him to become successful in acting; otherwise his father wanted him to become a pilot. Although his hesitant and shy nature was a problem between him and acting, but situations made him open to everything.
After the death of his mother, his father was quiet old to work and so he himself supported the family, through small time acting. As his mother’s wish and now his own mission, he started to participate in different male pageants and landed a role as a part- time model.
