Dani Barretto took to social media to greet her grandmother, Hershey Legaspi, a happy birthday.

On Instagram, Dani shared her message for her "Momsy", the mother of her dad Kier Legaspi.

"Happy Birthday to my Momsy!!!" she wrote. "There is nothing I wouldn’t do for you. Thank you for loving me the way that you do. You always told me ever since I was little that wherever you are, isang tawag ko lang, lahat gagawin mo to get to me. And you always did, mama. Now it's my turn to take care of you and spoil you. I love you! I love you so so much, Momsy!!!!"


 

 

Dani is the only child of Kier with his former partner, Marjorie Barretto.

While she remains close to her grandmother on her father's side, Dani is estranged from Kier. In her recent interview with Vicki Belo, the lifestyle vlogger revealed that the last time she saw her dad was seven years ago.

Despite this, she said she reached out to her dad last year so she could introduce her daughter, Millie, to him.

“I spoke to him last year. I called him [to tell him about] a lot of things. Parang because I also had a baby. I was very emotional because I knew he was just there. I want my daughter to know him. I don't want my daughter to grow up na what if she asks me about my dad, wala ako masagot because I don't know what's happening in his life,” she said.

But due to the COVID-19 lockdown, she and her dad have never had the chance to see each other. 

“I didn't even have his number. I had to ask for his number sa lola ko, his mom. I called him and we spoke. We kept trying to plan to see each other but because of COVID hindi kami matuluy-tuloy,” she said.

Before Dani got married to DJ Xavi Panlilio last year, Kier took to social media to pen a heartfelt post for his daughter, congratulating her on her engagement and reminding her that he will always be there for her. 

“Dear Aynrand Danielle, first things first, congratulations, I heard you are getting married. May both of you live a blissful marriage with plenty of children,” he began. 

“I don't really say much about our relationship because I am certain that both of us know the truth. I believe that no matter what you say now can never change the truth and the memories we had. I'm here, I will always be here. Bata ka pa lang lagi na kitang hinahabol, you don't know what I had to do just to see you. Until now, I'm still waiting for our meeting,” he added.

Despite things having soured between them, Kier said that Dani will always be loved by him and his family.

“I want you to know that I was the first man who ever loved you and that no matter what, you will always be my daughter. I will continue to pray for you and your family. Hindi importante ang opinyon ng iba. Para sa akin, kasama ang Legaspi family, you will have a special place in our hearts,” he said.

“I wish nothing but the best for you. May God bless you and everyone you love,” he added.
