Oyo Boy Sotto and Kristine Hermosa to get married soon, says Oyo’s mom Dina Bonnevie
Actors Oyo Boy Sotto and Kristine Hermosa will get married soon, Sotto’s mother Dina Bonnevie told ABS-CBNNews.com.
The veteran actress said their family has done the traditional pamamanhikan, where the groom’s family asks for the bride’s hand in marriage from her family--in Canada where Hermosa’s family resides. Bonnevie added that the couple has gone through pre-marriage seminars.
"We have a very, very close relationship. Everybody wishes them well and we are waiting for the day they get married... I love whom my son loves. I practically don’t have to advise them since they are very much with the Lord," she said in a mix of Filipino and English.
Bonnevie did not disclose details of the impending wedding but Sotto talked about his dream wedding in an interview with PEP.ph in May. "Definitely, it will be a Christian wedding. We’d like a beach wedding in the Philippines. We haven’t picked a specific one yet but we do know we don’t want to get married in Boracay," he said in Taglish.
Oyo Boy Sotto and Kristine Hermosa deny getting married in the United States.
The couple’s former showbiz flames had already sent their best wishes in different interviews over the past few months, even before Bonnevie confirmed it. Hermosa’s ex-husband Diether Ocampo told SNN, as reported by Manila Bulletin, "I can wish only the best for people like them, right? Of course, as much as possible, I’d rather not say anything. [Kristine and I are okay] and there are reasons why things turn out the way they do."
Jericho Rosales, Hermosa’s ex-boyfriend and first love team partner, told ABS-CBNNews.com, "Whatever suits them, right? I respect them. Of course, it’s not my business, right? But I’m always happy for Tin (Hermosa’s nickname) and whatever good things happen to her."
Sotto’s ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin told SNN, as reported by Manila Bulletin, "I'm glad that [Sotto] finally found his happiness."
