These stars are expressing their love for the “first man” in their lives on Father’s Day!
On Sunday, Kapuso and Kapamilya female celebs took to social media to post throwback snaps proving that they were, and will always be, “daddy’s little girl.”
Marian Rivera shared pics of herself as an adorable toddler with Spanish father Francisco Javier Alfonso.
“Happy Father’s Day Papa! I miss you everyday and hope to see you soon… Te quiero… 💕,” the now mother of two wrote.
Notice, too, her baby pics’ uncanny resemblance to her kids Zia and Ziggy.
Actress-artist Solenn Heussaff also posted different photos of her younger self during times spent with her French father, Louis Paul.
“Happy fathers day to my papa! Thank you for all the sacrifices and hard work to give us the best life we could ask for. We are all little adventurers because of your novel worthy life. Keep telling your story and smile more! Je t’aime papa! Louis Paul,” she said.
Iza Calzado paid tribute to the “first man I ever loved,” the late choreographer/TV director Lito Calzado, with a “twinning” photo.
“Happy Father’s Day to the first man I ever loved. How I yearn for your warm, loving embrace. Forever your baby girl. Love you, Daddy Yo! 💙,” she wrote.
A cute Alex Gonzaga also looked back on her growing-up years with her dad Carlito “Bonoy” Gonzaga. The host/vlogger said her father taught them about faith, singing and “teasing” Mommy Pinty, who is a favorite subject of Alex’s widely-viewed vlogs.
“It was a normal afternoon in our apartment 21 yrs ago. I came from our sportsfest in school and daddy as usual singing in our little karaoke and we took a picture before he sings another Gary V.
“I love you daddy! Thank you for teaching us all the things you LOVE to do: Serving Jesus Christ, Singing and teasing mommy Pinty. Happy father’s day daddy B! – from your bunso 🤪😬,” Alex said.
Heart Evangelista shared on Instagram stories of photos with her dad, restaurants owner Rey Ongpauco, wherein she wrote simply: “Happy Father’s day dad. I love you.”
Recently, Heart and Father were interviewed about their relationship in a Coca-Cola special, including the ups and downs.
Reflecting on a past misunderstanding that led to her father’s non attendance in her wedding, Heart said, “No’ng nag-away kami, I really felt a void in my life. It was so hard for me because having a solid family really matters to me so when I lost my family, I was lost as a person.”
They eventually reconciled because as Heart said, the real wealth in life is family. “We just started out like before, parang I was like a little girl again, we just get each other so much now.”
