On Tonight with Boy Abunda, veteran actor, comedian, singer, and songwriter Ogie Alcasid shared how being a father to his three children beats anything he’s ever done. “Yan ang pinakapaborito kong trabaho, ang sarap sa puso.” Ogie has two daughters with his ex-wife, Australian beauty queen Michelle van Eimeren, and a son with his wife Regine Velasquez.
Ogie relived one memorable father-daughter moment with Leila when the latter experienced her first heartbreak. “Mas naramdaman ko nung naghiwalay sila, sabi nung anak ko, ‘dad all I did was to love him, what went wrong?’ Eto ang sinabi ko, ‘anak lahat kaming mga lalake walang kwenta (laughs).’”
Because of the songwriter in her (“Napakagaling na songwriter,” Ogie attested), she was able to turn her heartbreak into music.
