Personal life

Victor is married to Margaret “Maggie” Nales Wilson, a British-Filipina who was crowned the 43rd Binibining Pilipinas-World in 2007. They were married twice on December 18, 2010 in Misibis, Albay. The first ceremony was held in a Catholic Church which was attended by only 15 people because initially, the beach wedding was not possible for the couple unless they wed first in a church because a Catholic wedding mandates that the ceremony be held inside a church.

The couple exchanged matrimonial rites there and continued with the wedding on Misibis Bay Raintre Resort which was attended by 200 close friends.

The wedding was a three-day event. The first day was the wedding rehearsal and dinner poolside party; the second day was a beach-side party at sunset; while the third day was the wedding day.

Controversy

Victor and Maggie released a three-minute pre-nuptial video virally, shot by their wedding photographer Jason Magbanua, which was heavily criticized for being inappropriate. Amidst the criticisms, Maggie Wilson defended the controversial video on her Twitter account saying, “Love it, or hate it, it’s MY video!”
