Binibining Pilipinas 2018 1st Runner-Up Vickie Rushton has finally made it to Coventry, England to meet her father Eric's family after 26 years of estrangement.
The actress/beauty queen shared beautiful photos of this major milestone on Instagram yesterday, July 10.
"This is an answered prayer. As early as now I can say that my trip is already complete. After 26 years, I finally met my family on my father’s side. My heart was overwhelmed and I just can't explain what I felt when I saw my brother went out the door with arms wide open. I was speechless. I was shaking, I felt like crying and jumping at the same time." Vickie captioned.
She continued, "I didn’t want to leave. It felt like home. For now, I have to wait again until my next visit. If this is how it feels after a long wait, I don’t mind waiting at all."
Her "baba", former Kapamilya actor Jason Abalos, accompanied her for the UK trip.
Vickie had an emotional reunion with Daddy Eric back in 2014 while she was a "Pinoy Big Brother: All In" housemate. They had been separated since he "abandoned" her and her mother when she was in grade school.
