Actress Julia Montes took to social media to share her heartwarming message for her father as he celebrated his birthday on Saturday, July 27.
Sharing a muted clip of her with her dad, Martin Schnittka, via Instagram, she wrote, "To my Gentle Giant, my King, my person... HAPPY BIRTHDAY Papa! #DaddysLittleGirl"
The post generated thousands of "likes" and comments, most of which came from showbiz personalities who greeted Mr. Schnittka while also expressing how much they miss Julia.
The 24-year-old actress, who has been on a hiatus from showbiz since last year, was last seen on the action-drama series "Asintado".
After being involved in pregnancy rumors last January, her management confirmed that Julia had been away to spend time with her father in Germany.
