change label font to bold

I'm trying to change the font on a label to bold, but the error tells me that bold "is read only".

Label1.Font.Bold = true; //doesn't work...

What can I do to change the font to bold??

(obviously not by using the designer!! :) I want it to change when I hover the mouse over the label...i have an event for that...)

    // set it to bold
    Label1.Font = new Font(Label1.Font, FontStyle.Bold);

    // back to normal
    Label1.Font = new Font(Label1.Font, FontStyle.Regular);
