Ruffa Gutierrez took to her Instagram to greet her youngest daughter, Venice Bektas, on her 18th birthday. The actress shared a photo of her daughter’s photoshoot for her 18th birthday which had a retro theme.
Venice is the second daughter of Ruffa with ex-husband Yilmaz Bektas. Their eldest daughter, Lorin, just turned 19 last month.
“Happy 18th birthday my cutie pie, @venicebektas ❤️You’re now a young lady! 🤩👯♀️Soar high, follow your dreams and travel the world! ✈️ I love you! Xx,” Ruffa wrote.
“Love you!!! Can’t wait to travel with you,” Venice replied to her mom.
Rather than going for a big party, Venice opted to have an intimate dinner with her family to celebrate her 18th birthday. Ruffa shared on her Instagram stories that her daughter requested for a European trip.
“Instead of having a grand debut, @venicebektas requested to go to Europe instead. Happy 18th, beautiful,” Ruffa revealed.
Various celebrities such as Janine Gutierrez, Chesca Montano, Raymond Gutierrez, among others greeted Ruffa’s daughter in the comments section. Supporters of the actress also made sure to flood Venice with their love on her special day.
Venice and Lorin reunited with their father in Istanbul last June. After 15 years of being separated from each other, the two had the opportunity to meet up with their father once more.
In a previous interview, Ruffa shared that she has been on speaking terms with her ex-husband for the sake of their two daughters.
“Nag-uusap kami ni Yilmaz ulit and nare-realize niya that time is so precious, that we’re getting old na and he wants to spend time with the kids,” she previously mentioned.
