By Xave Gregorio

After a failed marriage with a former beauty queen, Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III believes he has finally found “the one” in the person of chef Kathryna Yu.

“Ang excitement kasi ang pakiramdam mo na nahanap mo na talaga ‘yung karapat-dapat at talagang tumpak na partner sa buhay mo,” Pimnetel said Saturday (October 6) in an interview over radio dwIZ.

Pimentel and Yu would tie the knot on October 18 in a civil wedding ceremony at the Coconut Palace.

Yu currently heads ruling party Partido Demokratiko Pilipino — Lakas ng Bayan’s (PDP-Laban) humanitarian arm, PDP Cares, and manages Pimentel’s law firm.

This would be the second time the PDP-Laban president would marry. He was previously married to Binibining Pilipinas – Universe 1998 Jewel May Lobaton, but began living separately in 2011 and had their marriage annulled in January this year.

A flock of politikos, including President Rodrigo Duterte, Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III and former Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, are expected to attend Pimentel and Yu’s wedding.
