A very 'AlDub' pre-wedding special for Vic Sotto, Pauleen Luna

MANILA, Philippines – Four months after confirming their engagement, Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna were the center of attention in a fun pre-wedding special on Eat Bulaga, Saturday, January 23.

Pauleen was given a bridal shower, hosted by Lolas Nidora, Tinidora, Tidora, and Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza. Her friends Camille Prats, Yayo Aguila, and Sherilyn Reyes–Tan performed a dance number. Pia Guanio, Ruby Rodriguez, and Patricia Tumulak performed a song number. (IN PHOTOS: Pauleen Luna's bridal shower)

After messages were given, The lolas and Maine gave a gift to Pauleen – a throwback photo of her and Vic, a blast from a past. 

From Pauleen's bridal shower, Tito Sotto and Joey de Leon hosted the bachelor's party of Vic, which was attended by Vic's brothers Val, Maru, and the boys of the show. After a performance of "Ikaw," both Joey and Tito gave their messages to Vic.

But the event was not without any fun and laughter as Duhrizz, another character that Wally Bayola does on the kalyeserye segment of the show performed a dance number, to Vic's amusement.

Pauleen then came onstage, and the two gave their messages for each other.

"I just want to thank you for taking this journey with me. And I can’t wait to be your wife and I love you very much," Pauleen told Vic.

Vic meanwhile said he wanted to say so many things but wrapped up into 3 words – "I love you."

He also thanked everyone including his co-hosts and siblings. Although there were points, he was getting emotional, Vic would joke around. Vic also gave special mention to his children – Danica, Oyo, Vico, and Paulina.

"Thank you for the support. Kayo ang nagpalakas ng loob namin ni Pauleen na alam n’yo naman hindi naging ganun kadali… seriously thank you for all the support . Sa lahat ng mga Dabarkads, sa lahat ng mga kaibigan namin and especially sa aking family, my brothers, and most especially sa aking mga anak.

(Thank you for the support. You are the ones giving me and Pauleen the courage, all of you know has not been very easy...seriously thank you for all the support. To all the Dabarkads, to our friends, and most of all to my family, my brothers, and more especially to my children.) 

"I know na hindi ganung kadali na tanggapin ang aming mga desisyon but I know that you all love me and respect me kaya eto na kami ngayon,” Vic said before giving Pauleen a kiss.

(I know it was not easy to accept our decision, but I know that you all love me and respect me, so now, we're here.)

Last September, Vic confirmed that he and Pauleen were engaged after 4 years of dating. During the press conference for the movie My Bebe Love, Vic said that settling down with Pauleen was about "the woman, the right time." (READ: Vic Sotto on Pauleen Luna: 'The right woman, the right time')
