Newly-elected Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto received the sweetest and most thoughtful congratulatory messages from his half-siblings Oyo, Danica, at Paulina Sotto after he won in the recent elections.

Vico, Oyo, Danica, at Paulina Sotto are all children of “Eat Bulaga” host Vic Sotto, though they have different mothers.

Vico’s mother is actress Coney Reyes, while Angela Luz is Paulina’s mother. Oyo and Danica are full siblings and actress Dina Bonnevie is their mother.

Nevertheless, the three of them still extended their support and love to their half-brother.

Danica was the first one who congratulated Vico via Instagram by posting a photo with a lengthy caption.

She said that there were times when she thought that Vico would lose the elections, but he lauded his brother for not giving up.

“Wohoooo!!! It’s official!!!! I must admit that there were times when some of us felt worried and scared especially during the campaign period.

“Maraming nag alala at nagdasal para sayo. Mabigat ang kalaban pero di kayo sumuko. You have proven that FAITH should be BIGGER than our fears. I thank God for your heart to serve. I know that he will use you to transform this nation.

“Congratulations, Mayor Vico Sotto! We will always be here to support you! Love you!” Danica said.

She also congratulated Vic and Coney for raising Vico well.

On the other hand, Paulina congratulated her brother as all of his hard work paid off.

“So so proud of you brother! From annoying Kuya to MAYOR OF PASIG! All your hard work truly paid off!” she said.

For his part, Oyo wrote a short but meaningful message for his brother.

Oyo also thanked the people who voted for Vico.

Aside from his siblings, Vico’s father also expressed his disbelief that he now has a son who is a city mayor.

In an interview, Vic said “Siguro pagdating ng July, ‘pag nakaupo na siya [and during] inauguration, siguro doon ko pa lang ma-re-realize na, ‘Aba, may anak pala akong mayor.’ Nakakatuwa.”

Vico defeated Mayor Bobby Eusebio in a race described as a match between David and Goliath under the campaign theme of “Iba Naman.”

Vico is a one term councilor before he went on to challenge the veteran politician.

Vico has received 209, 370 votes while Bobby had 121, 556 votes.
