Marjorie Barretto and her daughter Dani showed their love and appreciation for the mother of Kier Legaspi, Hershey, as they marked her birthday on Sunday, October 16.

In an Instagram post, Dani shared her heartwarming birthday message for her “Momsy” as she shared throwback pictures of them together.

“Happy Happy Birthday, my Momsy! My Mama who continues to spoil me rotten until now. My Mama who rushed from Laguna to Quezon City when I was 5 because I called her crying begging her to come to me just cause I missed her. My Mama who shows up in every school program. And bida bida ako sa lahat ng program nung bata ako ah! My Mama who still sends food here at home just because. My Mama who’s present in all the milestones of my life, and now Millie’s,” referring to her 3-year-old daughter with her husband Xavi Panlilio.

“I can’t thank you enough, Mama. Now it’s my turn to take care of you and spoil you rotten,” she added. “Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people on earth!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!” she continued.

In the comments section of her post, Marjorie also shared her short but sweet greeting for Kier’s mother.

“Happy Birthday Tita Hershey. I love you very much,” said Marjorie.

Dani, 29, is the daughter of Marjorie and Kier. Marjorie also has three children with actor-comedian Dennis Padilla – including actress Julia Barretto – and a daughter with politician Recom Echiverri.

Although she is close to her grandmother, Dani has long been estranged from Kier.

In an interview with Vicki Belo in 2021, the lifestyle vlogger said the last time she and her dad saw each other was seven years ago. 

Despite this, she said she reached out to Kier in 2020 so she could introduce her daughter Millie to him.

“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,” she said.

“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 added.

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 at the time.
