Michelle Van Eimeren gave a heartwarming message to her daughter Leila, who left Australia to live with her father, Ogie Alcasid in the Philippines.
Michelle’s Instagram message says ‘Today is the start of another big adventure for you.’
‘Breathe in each moment, live with intention and have gratitude for even the smallest details.’
‘Enjoy this year of self-discovery, reconnecting with your roots and most importantly, family,’ she added.
‘I’m excited to hear all your stories, celebrate your achievements and of course, I’ll always be here if you need me if anything doesn’t go as planned.’
Ogie’s eldest daughter Leila is now a gorgeous young lady
Leila is his first daughter with his ex-wife, former Miss Australia Michelle Van Eimeren.
Leila grew up in Australia with Michelle, where she recently graduated high school.
She turned 18 last year and is currently attending college at St. John’s College in Sydney.
Many have confirmed that Leila looks like Selena Gomez’s Asian version.
Meanwhile, Regine Velasquez, Ogi’s wife said that Leila will stay to have more bonding with her father and half-brother Nate.
Regine will not allow Leila to enter showbiz as she is scared that Ogie cannot protect her once she joined them.
‘Let her enjoy her private life’ because their world is really different, the singer-actress added.
