T he re­la­tion­ship of Vicki Belo and Hay­den Kho isn’t perfect. But Hay­den and Vicki have proven time and again that they are perfect for each other.

Vicki, 61, did not think she would get mar­ried again after a failed mar­riage with busi­ness­man Atom Henares. After all, she al­ready had two kids, Cristalle Belo-Pitt and Quark Henares, who are now both suc­cess­ful in their cho­sen fields, and she had started the Belo Med­i­cal Group, a mul­ti­mil­lion beauty em­pire that is now touted as the big­gest of its kind in the coun­try.

There is no more room for a man and mar­riage, right?

But love, as they say, works in mys­te­ri­ous ways.

Hay­den and Vicki started see­ing each other in 2005. But while their 12-year re­la­tion­ship has brought them great joy, it has also brought them much heartache. It was marked by doubts, ar­gu­ments, law­suits, and un­cer­tainty. It reached a point, in 2010, when Vicki called it quits and dis­tanced her­self from Hay­den, who had got­ten em­broiled in a string of is­sues that rocked show­biz.

But in the end, and through it all, their love for each other pre­vailed. When ev­ery­body thought that go­ing their sep­a­rate ways was the best op­tion for the two of them, Vicki and Hay­den found them­selves drawn to each other again.

Hay­den Kho Jr., who lost his li­cense to prac­tice medicine in 2009 but re­gained it in 2014, turned his life around for Vicki. In 2013, he em­braced Chris­tian­ity after an en­counter with Chris­tian philoso­pher Ravi Zacharias, the same man who would of­fi­ci­ate their Chris­tian wed­ding rites at The Amer­i­can Church in Paris on Septem­ber 2, 2017.

Vicki, for her part, chose to for­give and to put the sad past be­hind her. In a Fe­bru­ary 2017 in­ter­view with the ca­ble news chan­nel CNN Philip­pines, she said, “If you want a re­la­tion­ship to re­ally make it, for­get the past and for­give.” In the same in­ter­view, she noted that ever since she found the heart to for­give Hay­den for what he did and didn’t do, “ev­ery­thing’s ac­tu­ally got­ten so much bet­ter.”

The cou­ple have since been lead­ing a rel­a­tively qui­eter life. Their bat­tle-tested

After a six-year en­gage­ment, doc­tor-to-the-stars Vicki Belo, 61, fi­nally tied the knot with her long-time beau, Hay­den Kho, 37, in an in­ti­mate Chris­tian wed­ding cer­e­mony at The Amer­i­can Church in Paris. The af­fair brought to­gether friends, fam­ily, and celebri­ties, in­clud­ing the Belo Med­i­cal Group’s big­gest en­dorsers—with no me­dia cov­er­ing it!

It was a wed­ding of grand pro­por­tions, from the pre-wed­ding din­ner party that was held on a cruise along The Seine, the 777-kilome­ter river and com­mer­cial wa­ter­way within Paris, to the lav­ish din­ner at the Grand Foyer of the Palais Garnier, the his­toric 1,979-seat opera house that is con­sid­ered one of the most im­por­tant and beau­ti­ful build­ings in the City of Light.
