Ruffa Gutierrez's daughters Lorin and Venice have officially left for Istanbul to reunite with their Turkish father, businessman Yilmaz Bektas.
The "The House Arrest of Us" actress took to Instagram today, June 10, to share snippets of her dropping her children at the airport, along with some photos of them already boarded at the plane.
"All their bags are packed, they’re ready to go," Ruffa wrote. "5:30am drop-off for Lorin and Venice’s morning flight to Istanbul. The girls are super looking forward to reuniting with their Baba and Turkish loved ones after more than a decade."
"My cuties, have a meaningful, memorable, and fun trip! Take lots of pics & videos. Better yet, vlog! I love you," she reminded them.
Ruffa first teased about their reunion last June 8, when she uploaded a clip on Instagram featuring her daughters' childhood photos. Yilmaz, as well as his Turkish family, can also be seen in some of the pics.
"After 15 long years apart, a beautiful reunion will finally take place in Istanbul this weekend," she captioned the post with the hashtag #TogetherAgain.
Last February, Ruffa marked the 10th year since the annulment of her marriage with Yilmaz.
While the journey may have been "bittersweet," the actress-host said she had "no regrets" ending their marriage.
"What a bittersweet journey it has been. I now realize that not everyone is going to stay forever, but I still have to keep on going and thank them for the life lessons that made me the woman I am today. No regrets, just love," she wrote.
