A couple of days after the summer solstice top celebrity doctor Vicki Belo and longtime partner of 12 years Hayden Kho finally tied the knot in simple civil ceremonies officiated by Makati Mayor Abigail Binay.
They shared photos from their special day through on their respective Instagram accounts, both posting poignant captions to go with their snapshots. “I was afraid that I would feel like I would lose my freedom by getting married. Instead I feel joyful and free. Thank you #mayorabbybinay for officiating our civil wedding,”
Belo wrote on her account @victoria_belo.Kho, on the other hand, said, “‘Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.’ #OfficiallyOffTheMarket”The couple began dating in 2005 but split four years later after Kho and actress Katrina Halili got involved in a sex video scandal which even went as far as the Senate for investigation. As a result, Kho, a plastic surgeon, lost his medical license in 2009 as was found guilty of committing “immorality, dishonorable and unethical conduct.”Five years later, the Professional Regulation Commission reinstated as Kho as a doctor, and he and Belo got together again thereafter. The couple, who have a 23-year age gap, welcomed their firstborn Scarlet Snow in 2016 via a surrogate arrangement. Belo has two children, Quark and Cristalle, from her first marriage to businessman Atom Henares.Belo and Kho’s wedding comes as a surprise after initial reports said they had planned a wedding in Paris next year.
