Singer Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid’s daughter Leila had a special bonding on Sunday, February 5, during an event which aims to raise awareness about autism.
On Instagram, GMA reporter Micaela Papa posted a photo of Regine and Leila while enjoying the event organized by the Autism Society of the Philippines. The advocacy event was held in the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
“Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid’s daughter Leila attend the Angels’ Walk event for Autism awareness,” GMA’s Instagram account captioned the photo.
Leila — who is Ogie’s child with his ex-wife, beauty queen Michelle Van Eimeren — recently moved to Manila.
“Visiting Manila every so often over the years has afforded me the opportunity to peek into the vibrant Filipino culture and the kind people that it consists of– an opportunity I will forever be grateful for. However, with 14-and-a-half years in Australia beating the time I had in Manila, learning about the other half of where I come from is a necessity. As of January 2017, I will be living and learning and growing in Manila, bonding with my wonderful family that so far I have only gotten to see every few months. While I’ll miss my beautiful mother, step-father and sister back home, comfort lies in the fact that traveling is our thing; i.e. I know they’ll visit soon enough and join me in relishing in the greatness of the Philippines,” Leila wrote earlier in her blog.
Leila has also expressed openness to starting a showbiz career in the Philippines. Recently, she guested in Regine’s talk show Sarap Diva.
