MANILA, Dec 30 (Mabuhay) – The upcoming wedding of Kristine Hermosa and Oyo Boy Sotto is the first biggest celebrity event in 2011.

The engaged couple will marry on January 12, 2011, Oyo Boy’s birthday. Details about the wedding are scarce because the 2 stars remain mum on the event. But according to a source, the wedding will take place at a lakeside resort in Batangas province.

It is going to be private and simple wedding, with invited guests not exceeding 200 people. ABS-CBN president Charo Santos-Concio and television executive Malou Choa-Fagar are among the sponsors.

Vic Sotto, Oyo Boy’s dad, is already excited to have more grandchildren.

“Another apo sa New Year. Depende kay Oyo Boy at Tintin (Hermosa) eyon, kung masipag sila. (Laughs). I’m quite excited. May alaga na naman sila. Oo, pangalawang apo ko, I am looking forward sa pangatlo,” the elder Sotto said.

Vic’s daughter, Danica, is already married and has one child.

Oyo Boy and Hermosa met on the set of “Enteng Kabisote” in 2004.

Based on their interview with Star Studio Magazine, there was no instant attraction when they were introduced.

At that time, Oyo Boy was with Angel Locsin, while Hermosa’s boyfriend then was Diether Ocampo.

They began to date only in 2006. In September 2009, Oyo Boy proposed to Hermosa on her 26th birthday. (MNS)
