MANILA, Philippines – Actor Gabby Concepcion revealed he was hurt when he learned that one of his daughters is not yet ready to meet him.
In an interview with “The Buzz” aired on Sunday, Concepcion said he has been asking people to help him reach out to Cloei but his daughter has said she is not yet ready.
“There were many chances sana because tumatawag din ako kay Boss Vic [del Rosario of VIVA Entertainment]. Humihingi ako ng tulong kay KC [Concepcion]. Pero nung nakausap niya si Cloei, ang sabi ni Cloei she’s not ready. Masakit 'yun talaga. Nasaktan ako,” he said.
Cloei is Concepcion’s daughter with socialite Jenny Syquia.
Meanwhile, Garrie Concepcion, the actor’s daughter with Grace Ibuna, said she is hoping she could also spend time with all of her siblings.
As for her father and Cloie, Garrie said she remains hopeful that they will finally meet each other given the right time.
“It would be a nice occasion for all of us to meet. Siyempre I know it has always been a dream of Papa na makasama niya lahat ng mga anak niya. I know that day will come. Timing lang talaga,” she said.
KC, on the other hand, refused to get caught between her father and sister Cloie.
“I understand Cloei, I understand her. Pero mas maganda kung hindi muna ako gumitna kasi it’s enough na mayroon akong relasyon with Cloei bilang kapatid niya. Pagdating kay Papa, nasa kanila na iyon. When Cloei’s ready, she will know sa sarili niya. Mabait naman iyon eh. She’ll know what to do,” she said.
KC is Concepcion’s daughter with actress Sharon Cuneta.
