It was on his daughter KC Concepcion’s 36th birthday last year when actor Gabby Concepcion and his family was able to spend some bonding time with her at his beach house in Batangas. Three months after, the vlogger and jewelry designer flew to the US to resume her studies in gemology and has been based in Los Angeles, California since then.
Last February 3, the 57-year-old actor shared a memorable throwback photo of himself and KC when she was just a little girl enjoying time at the beach along with the caption, “Some people live a life time for moments like this…”
In the comment section, KC wrote, “🌊🐚🏖☀️✨🐙♥️🐠 I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!” for her father with whom she has rebuilt a relationship after years of being estranged.
For Gabby’s birthday last November, KC wrote a heartfelt post to the first man in her life. “…the first guy who stole my heart!!! Thank you for always spending time with me/us, for checking up on me and picking up the phone when I call even if it’s 2 a.m.! I value and cherish every second we spend together, every conversation, every bonding moment, every new adventure and every new story you have to tell," she said.
In her post, KC also thanked her father for not only making up for all the lost time, but for making the effort to keep a close bond with her.
"Thank you for respecting me as a grown woman, and as an adult—this is so precious to me. Thank you also for always making me feel like your baby girl," she continued. "I missed you for many years, but I still and forever will love you so, so, so much. Past is past, and what matters the most is TODAY and TOMORROW! I love every second!”
In another post, KC affirmed her love for her father even though they are miles away. "Papa. Cool and down to earth, a joker, a guy’s guy, our #GirlDad - so much time lost, but so so much, regained," she said at the time.
"I thank God for our phone calls, deep sea dates, nature explorations, talking til we fall asleep. Truly grateful to the universe for keeping our love alive," she added.
