Happy birthday mahal ko! I always thank the Lord na ikaw ang napangasawa ko. Salamat sa iyong walang katapusang pasensya sa akin, sa pag aalaga mo sakin at sating mga anak. Maraming salamat sa pag mamahal mo. Mahal na mahal kita...❤️ ...Found old pictures from 10 years ago, back when you guested in Midnight DJ 😂 Few months before our wedding❤️ @khsotto
The couple first met on the set of the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Enteng Kabisote: Okay Ka, fairy Ko The Legend which starred Oyo’s dad Vic Sotto and Kristine played his wife Faye. In previous interviews, the pretty actress revealed that there was no attraction when she first met him on the set because they both were in relationships with other people at that time. “Alam naman niya yun. Hindi ko siya na-notice talaga. Kaya wala akong masasabing first impression sa kanya," she said. Kristine shared how their friendship blossomed into romance only when they became single and started hanging out together with their friends.
In his most recent Instagram post, Oyo also shared throwback photos of himself and his wife on the set of his longtime TV5 series Midnight DJ where he played a late night radio disc jockey who would find ways to help with the paranormal problems of his listeners. He wrote, “…Found old pictures from 10 years ago, back when you guested in Midnight DJ. Few months before our wedding ️@khsotto?”
