Celebrity skin doctors Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho are set to finally tie the knot this September in Paris, France.
According to a report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the announcement was made to some of the couple’s closest friends through a text message purportedly coming from the couple’s two-year-old daughter, Scarlet Snow.
“This is Scarlet Snow Belo and I would like to invite you to be present when my parents, Daddy Hayden and Mommy Vicki, get married in our favorite city, Paris,” went the text message.
This will be the second time Belo, whose age gap with Kho varies from 23 to 25 years depending on reports, will tie the knot. She was previously married to businessman Atom Henares with whom she has two children, filmmaker Quark Henares and businesswoman Cristalle Belo, who married Australian hotelier Justin Pitt in Italy last year.
The wedding will be the culmination of a 12-year rollercoaster romance between Belo and Kho, which has had its fair share of controversies. The two met when Kho started to work for the Belo Medical Group that Belo owns and operates.
Their relationship was put to a severe test when private videos of Kho having sex with three different women (actresses Katrina Halili and Maricar Reyes, and an unidentified Brazilian model) were leaked online in 2009.
The fallout of the scandal resulted in the revocation of Kho’s professional license to practice medicine, which was eventually reinstated in 2014.
Belo and Kho parted ways following the scandal but later reconciled and initially announced their engagement in 2011. The planned wedding, however, did not push through, after which Belo and Kho again separated but insisted that they remained good friends.
In later years, Kho turned over a new leaf and rediscovered his spirituality. After briefly dabbling in acting and TV hosting, he has become an inspirational speaker for Christian gatherings.
Last year, they introduced daughter Scarlet Snow via social media. Kho revealed to showbiz scribe Ricky Lo that the girl had been conceived through a procedure called “gestational surrogacy,” which also involves in vitro fertilization.
