A father’s love to his daughter is something truly incomparable, sometimes even defies logic.
And, this incredible bond they share rubs off on his princess, who would love him back so dearly and treasure each tight hug they share, each time they talk, and each moment he gives her the strength to face the world.
Even when she does reach the pinnacle, she still never fails to hold on to dear old daddy. Such daddy’s girls are all over showbiz and here are some of the most prominent.
Before she became the celebrated actress-TV host-model-social media influencer, Anne Curtis was the dedicated and dutiful daughter to her Australian lawyer dad James Curtis-Smith, who always showed his love, support, and affection. And, even when she had reached the peak of her career, James has always been actively involved in all her projects, endorsements as her adviser. This made her decide well and choose the right projects, including her long-standing, immensely successful stint on It’s Showtime. This is how daddy James shows his never-ending fatherly love to his beloved Anne.
Yassi Pressman was never the glamorous, glittery kind. In fact, she said she always shared a “simple life” with her British father, Ronnie. He raised her and sister Issabelle alone, imparting a sense of humility and modesty in all their endeavors. Yassi would always celebrate her triumphs and share her failures with her dad, who would always give her the kind of love and support she couldn’t find elsewhere. And, she would always become that source of strength for his dad as she reached her dreams as a top actress currently in the lead cast of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Toni Gonzaga and her dad, Carlito, have been very much inseparable. He had been very protective of his daughter as she led a single life, trying her luck in showbiz. He would become her source of strength every step of the way, until she achieved success as a TV host-actress, currently a lead mainstay of Home Sweetie Home. And, as she walked down the aisle to say her “I dos” with now husband Paul Soriano, her dance with her father was so moving as tears rolled down her eyes closing that chapter in her life with her beloved dad. But even as she is now raising her own family, Toni would always have her dad’s support and guidance all throughout.
What’s so admirable about Angel Locsin is her endearing bond with her dad Angelo Colmenares, who became her “rock” as she embarked on her stellar showbiz career as a teenager. Since she achieved success as an actress, we are not only witness to her incredible performances onscreen, including her recent roles as Lia and Jacintha in La Luna Sangre, but also as a loving daughter. Her involvement in charitable efforts, such as the Red Cross, shows a trait she had inherited from her dad, her being very helpful in every way she can—a good heart she always shares. But best of all is her overwhelming, immeasurable love for her dad.
While they may have their ups and downs in their relationship as father and daughter, there’s no denying that Julia Barretto will always be a daddy’s girl to father Dennis Padilla, who has been part of the cast of Precious Hearts Romances Presents Araw Gabi. In whatever opportunity that comes up, whether it’s Julia rejoicing over her laurels as an artist or the pain she experiences in dealing with life’s challenges, Dennis is always there to give his love and support. And Julia appreciates and cherishes these moments with her dad, whom she shares a blissful bond as she moves further in her stellar career in film with the upcoming I Love You, Hater with Joshua Garcia, and on TV, the last being the impeccable family drama A Love to Last.
The loving bond between father and daughter is incredibly extraordinary and never-ending. And, as these celebrity daddy’s girls continue to revel in their heartwarming ties with their ever devoted and supportive dads, we are encouraged and inspired to celebrate the dedication and love our own fathers give us.
Happy Father’s Day to all loving dads out there!
