Jessy Mendiola finally got to reunite with her Lebanese-British father Roger Tawile in Dubai after they last saw each other face-to-face in 2019. This time, Jessy’s husband Luis Manzano also got to spend time with his father-in-law.
The “The Girl in the Orange Dress” actress took to Instagram to share snaps of their reunion, showing how the couple got to spend quality time with her Papa Roger.
She captioned the post with the phrase “my family” written in Arabic, adding a red heart emoji at the end.
Luis simply wrote three heart emojis in the comment section.
Jessy’s father was last featured in her YouTube vlog posted in June of last year, where the actress asked about his reaction upon finding out about Jessy’s engagement.
“Well, I was happy,” he answered. “I was happy for you because when you get married, it’s your life. And you were getting married, not me. And I asked you so many times before, ‘Baby, are you sure? Do you love him?’ And you said, ‘Yes, I love him and I want to spend my future with him.’ So for me, that’s enough. I just want you to be happy, that’s all. And if getting married with Luis makes you happy, Luis it is.”
On the topic of grandkids, Roger told Jessy, “Again, it’s your decision. It’s up to you. I will love them all.”
Her father wasn’t able to attend Jessy and Luis’ wedding in person due to the pandemic’s travel restrictions.
Jessy and Luis marked their first anniversary as a married couple last February 21.
