Former Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III and Chef Kathryna Yu have tied the knot.
Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio officiated on the wedding rites Thursday, October 18, at the Coconut Palace in Pasay City.
Several political personalities attended the affair, including President Rodrigo Duterte, who is also Pimentel’s party-mate in the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan.
“At this very moment, despite the chaos of politics, God blessed me with another opportunity to love and be loved through Kath, my wife,” Pimentel said in a Facebook post on Thursday.
“I am grateful to everyone for your support and love to Kath and I,” he also said.
Pimentel, 54, and Yu, 36, met each other five years ago at the senator’s victory party for winning in the 2013 elections. /kga
