Danica Sotto isn't actually a member of the dabarkads, the group composed of Eat Bulaga! hosts, but being "Bossing" Vic Sotto's daughter makes her one of their own.
During the Pingris-Sotto nuptials last March 3 at Palms Country Club in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Eat Bulaga! hosts were present to witness the happy occasion. After the wedding, newlyweds Danica and Marc Pingris flew immediately to Boracay for their honeymoon.
Last Saturday, March 10, the newlyweds returned the favor by guesting in GMA-7's noontime show Eat Bulaga! Allan K shared that during Danica and Marc's honeymoon, they left behind their camera. He then presented the couple with a gift-wrapped box and urged them to open it. "Bossing" Vic then joked, "Wala bang gift [para] sa daddy?"
Acting as the dabarkads spokesperson, Allan K gave this message: "To Danica and Marc, wish ng Eat Bulaga ang maraming malulusog na Little Miss Philippines at That's My Boy! sa buhay n'yo. Congratulations and our best wishes."
Danica's eyes widened at the mention of having children so soon. She responded by saying, "Gusto ko lang siyempre magpasalamat sa Eat Bulaga family, who has always been there for us...sa lahat ng hosts, sa daddy ko, Ate Ciara..."She rattled off a list of names and even thanked their church, Victory Christian Fellowship.
The 24-year old star of Daddy Di Do Du asked her husband, "Wala ka bang pasasalamatan?" The cager quipped, "Napasalamatan mo na lahat, e."
Inside the gift-wrapped box was a brand-new camera. Vic asked: "Paano yan? Tapos na ang honeymoon nila?" Not to be outdone, Allan K shot back: "Anong tapos? E, di take two! To Marc and Danica, a honeymoon trip to Boracay, take two!"
The crowd cheered while the other hosts prodded Marc to speak up. Vic finally got his son-in-law to talk when he asked, "Sa akin, wala ka bang message?"
The star forward of the Purefoods team declared on national television: "Promise ko po talaga na iingatan ko po si Danica habambuhay. Mamahalin ko po siya. Kung ano yung pagmamahal niya [Vic Sotto] kay Danica, dodoblehin ko yung pagmamahal sa kanya."
"Bossing" Vic gave an equally stirring piece by saying, "Ikaw na bahala sa anak ko. Tulad ng lahat ng magulang, kaligayahan ni Marc and Danica ang hangad ko. Good luck sa inyong dalawa." The cager then hugged his father-in-law, signaling the end of that sentimental portion of Eat Bulaga!
