MANILA, Philippines – After being a couple for more than one year, actress Kristine Hermosa and actor Oyo Boy Sotto finally tied the knot Wednesday afternoon at Club Balay Isabel in Talisay, Batangas.

The intimate Christian wedding ceremony was attended by the couple’s close friends and relatives. The whole Sotto clan was there, and the Hermosa family flew all the way from Canada just to witness the couple’s special day.

Among the principal sponsors were ABS-CBN president Charo Santos-Concio and Star Magic Head Johnny Manahan.

The two first met in 2004 when they did the first “Enteng Kabisote” movie. They became close friends since then.

It was only in 2006, in the 3rd installment of “Enteng Kabisote,” when Sotto felt something special for Hermosa.

Sotto revealed that during that time, they were already going out on group dates.

Although it was frequently reported that the 2 were in a relationship, Sotto confessed that they only became a couple during the 26th birthday of the actress last September 9, 2009.

Sotto admitted in the December 2010 issue of Star Studio Magazine that it was on the same day that he formally proposed to Hermosa.

According to Sotto, they immediately informed their parents about the good news.

Last May 2010, Sotto and Hermosa flew to Canada to formally ask for the latter’s hand from her parents.

On Wednesday, the couple started their life together as husband and wife.

As of posting time, the wedding reception was still ongoing. – Report from Showbiz News Ngayon
