LOOK: Kier Legaspi congratulates daughter Dani Barretto on engagement

90s actor Kier Legaspi made an unexpected display of affection for his daughter Dani Barretto after she opened the doors to their mysterious relationship in a new vlog uploaded last March 16. 

Dani, eldest daughter to Marjorie Barretto, detailed that she had not spoken to her father for six years and that they left things in "not so good" terms. She revealed, "Until now, we're still not in good terms. To be honest, my dad and I never really had a solid relationship. All I know is he's my dad and that's it. We had a brief relationship for like two months and it was nice. I'm not gonna say that I don't love him, but I guess when you're apart for so long and you already grew up and nasanay ka na na wala 'yung tao sa life mo, you just feel like...you're okay without them."

She continued on to say that their relationship is better off this way, "I've been hurt a lot of times by this person, and not that I'm blaming him for everything because I probably have faults too. But at the end of the day, I've been wanting an effort out of him, but I never got it...pwede rin ako magkabubog."

Perhaps as a response, Kier took to Instagram yesterday, March 17, for his very own statement: a long congratulatory message for Dani and her long-time beau Xavi Panlilio, who got engaged a month ago, as well as a handful of photos from his early days as a father.

He wrote, "First things first, congratulations, I heard you are getting married. May both of you live a blissful marriage with plenty of children. Aynrand, 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. Here are some pictures of us, memories that will forever be in my heart. I kept this glass flower I gave you a long time ago hoping that you will bloom as a good and truthful person."

He went on, "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. I wish nothing but the best for you. May God bless you and everyone you love."
