Extra-marital affairs are unfortunately commonplace in society, and not even celebrities are immune from the havoc. In a now-viral TikTok video showcasing Dina Bonnevie’s interview last 2020, the veteran actress was quoted opening up about her experience meeting Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, her ex-husband Vic Sotto’s son with Coney Reyes. ICYDK, Vico was born in 1989, three years before Dina's marriage with Vic was annulled.
“I remember dinala ni Vic sa bahay. And then, yun. Yung mga maliliit na damit ni Oyo binigay ko sa kanya, yung mga books ni Oyo, nursery books binigay ko, yung mga toys, ang dami dami kasing toys ni Oyo, binigay ko sa kanya,” she shared, recounting their meetup when Vico was still a child.Instagram/vicosotto
She added, “Tapos parang Vic was saying, ‘Sorry sa nagawa ko, but this is my son.' Pinakilala niya sa akin.”
Dina also noticed that Vico would even avoid her at church out of shame. “For a while nakikita niya ‘ko sa church, umiiwas siya. Parang he didn’t wanna see me kasi nga parang I’m reminded of the sin. Sabi ko, 'No, it’s not your fault and it was never your fault so don’t feel that way.'”
While it certainly was a complicated time, Dina reveals in a separate interview that she has already healed from her past feud with Vico’s mom: her good friend Coney. She said: “My life has been an open book. And everyone knew that I had a fight with a friend because of my (former) partner, husband. They had a child, too. Of course, it was painful.”
“It took years before we made peace. God is good. We have forgiven each other. He really finds a way to heal our hearts and our relationships.”
Furthermore, she also expressed her admiration towards Vico’s good upbringing courtesy of Coney. “I admire her for that… for doing it on her own. Kudos to her. Vico is a very intelligent boy,” she said.
