They say that being a father comes from the heart and not just about sharing flesh and blood. Liza Soberano can attest to this beautiful truth and she’s thankful also to the father-figures in her life. Here’s her message:
“Happy Father’s Day to all fathers out there! I myself have a few. I have my biological father. I have a grandpa who raised me, I call him Daddy. I have a step-father. I am grateful for all the men in my life for treating me as their own even if I wasn’t really their own. I just want to say thank you for all the hard work that you do to keep the family alive and for taking care of your kids and just being great role models to your children and being great parents.”
