Pauleen Marie Javier Luna-Sotto[1] (born November 10, 1988) is a Filipina actress and television personality. She appears on the GMA Network, particularly as one of the regular hosts of the long-running Philippine variety show Eat Bulaga! where she portrays the child-woman character Baby Poleng.


Luna began her show business career when she joined Eat Bulaga!'s Little Miss Philippines talent contest in 1995.[2] She began acting at 13 years of age when she became a member of ABS-CBN Corporation's Star Magic Batch 11 in 2002, before transferring to GMA Network.[3]

She played the role of Odessa in Etheria, the second installment of the Encantadia trilogy, and appeared in the second Koreanovela adaptation of GMA Network's Ako si Kim Samsoon.[4] Following this, she appeared in Luna Mystika, starring Heart Evangelista. In 2009 she played with Dennis Trillo and Jennica Garcia in the romantic-comedy Adik Sa'Yo, and was later cast as the primary antagonist, Sofia Montemayor, in Ikaw Sana.

Luna plays Honey Toledo-Ferrer in the afternoon Philippine soap opera Trudis Liit.[5]

In 2006, Luna was ranked number 9 in the FHM-Philippines list of sexiest women and was featured on the cover of the December 2006 issue of UNO magazine.

Personal life[edit]

By December 2011, Luna had began dating her Eat Bulaga! co-host Vic Sotto after co-starring in Enteng ng Ina Mo, which the latter only confirmed in 2013. In September 2015, Sotto confirmed his engagement to Luna.[6][7] The couple married on January 30, 2016 in Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa.[8]
