MANILA, FEBRUARY 18, 2008 (STAR) PEOPLE
By Jose Paolo S. Dela Cruz - Medicine and romance has always been a good onscreen mix. From the charming klutziness of “Nurse Betty” to the heart wrenching lives of the Grey’s Anatomy cast, people just can’t seem to get enough of romance in the ICU—or so they think. Sometimes, taste in film doesn’t necessarily reflect taste in life.
Lovers Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho Jr. can both attest to that. Both beauty doctors and both in love, the twosome seemed to be the perfect match. Well, at least before the world got to take a peek into their birth certificates. Eyebrows raised and heads turned the wrong way when they found out that the celebrity doctor was dating a guy 22 years her junior.
Rumors – which include Hayden’s alleged attraction towards Vicki’s daughter, his interest in her well-established medical empire, and other nasty stories – immediately spread like wildfire. Although most stories made the twosome look like your typical gold digging May-December telenovela couple, Vicki remained unfazed. Her long years in the showbiz spotlight have taught her well enough to ignore stories of malicious intent. Hayden on the other hand seems more affected. “I don’t understand people’s obsession with numbers. Why can’t they believe that people actually fall in love, regardless of their age?” he questions.
Despite the controversies that surround them, Vicki seems content with the haven she found in Hayden. According to her, Hayden is the most mature, sensible, and talented man she has ever met. Vicki also confessed that he has fulfilled all three things that she has always wished a man would do for her. “First, he already cooked for me. Second, he serenaded me — every week on national TV,” she explains. As for the third one, the couple blushingly kept it a secret.
Vicki also admits that Hayden usually returns gifts to her, especially when he deems it too expensive. One of these return-to-sender presents is a luxury SUV. “I told him that if he really didn’t want the car, he might as well take it for a drive anyway, thinking that no guy could ever resist this kind of car after sitting behind the wheels,” she says. The next morning, the car returned with a sweet little thank-you-but-I’m-still-not-taking-it note.
Vicki also says that Hayden is far more mature when it comes to attitude, perspective, and way of life. Instead of her teaching him valuable life lessons, it’s usually the other way around. “He’s even conservative when it comes to dressing me up,” she adds half-jokingly.
When not busy with work or traveling around the world, Vicki and Hayden spend time like a settled couple. They spend most of their quality moments lounging around in each other’s homes, lazily cuddling when time permits. Sometimes, they also share free time with Hayden’s family. “We’ve grown quite close to each other, especially me and his mother,” Vicki adds.
No matter how happy they are with their three-year-long relationship, the couple admits that wedding bells won’t be ringing anytime soon for them. Vicki, who was once married to businessman Atom Henares, says that marriage has a tendency to complicate things. Hayden has no problem with such hesitation, claiming that he’s happy with anything, as long as it’s with Vicki.
Hayden gave Vicki a very expensive watch as a present, so expensive that he almost maxed out his savings account. However, this is nothing compared to the gift he promises her every day. “I promised, ‘Vicki, I’ll never let you grow old,’” says Hayden. As such, he spends much time and effort traversing the globe in search of the best anti-aging knowledge. “The research he does is far more complicated than cosmetic surgery. It’s on a hormonal level,” reveals Vicki.
After mastering the art of slowing the aging process internally, the couple will introduce the latest in anti-aging technology through the Belo medical group. “This time, our patients won’t just leave the clinic looking young and beautiful. They’ll leave feeling young from the inside out,” Hayden says.
As far as credit goes, the 28 year-old doctor doesn’t seem to have a care in the world. “Vicki has always been my idol. She has inspired me to be a cosmetic surgeon. I don’t care if I become tagged as her wingman forever,” he says. With this, Vicki finds in Hayden a comrade that will help her fulfill her lifelong legacy of making the Filipino even more beautiful.
