MANILA – Actor Raymart Santiago took to the image-sharing site Instagram to reach out to his children Sabina and Santino amid his ongoing legal battle against his estranged wife, actress Claudine Barretto.
Last Thursday, Sabina had a recital at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City after undergoing lessons with the popular dance group G Force.
Barretto accompanied Sabina to the event as revealed by her Instagram posts last week.
Santiago, on the other hand, just expressed how proud he is of his daughter by posting her picture and video during the event on his own Instagram account.
“So proud of you sabina... I LOVE YOU,” he said in one of his posts.
“Miss you so much my Sabina and congratulations.. Santino i love you ... from Papa,” Santiago said in another post.
In the May 15 episode of “Aquino & Abunda Tonight,” Santiago’s lawyer, Atty. Ruth Castelo, revealed Barretto actually invited Santiago to attend Sabina’s recital.
The actor, however, opted to just not go because of their complicated situation, Castelo said.
“The lawyer called me. Initially of course Raymart was very eager to go but with the recent events now, 'yung mga nangyayari, parang they are doubting the sincerity of the invitation already,” Castelo had said.
According to Castelo, Santiago has not stopped making efforts to be in touch with his children, who are both living with their mom.
