Dani Barretto on father Kier Legaspi: “We never had a solid relationship”

Dani Barretto, the only daughter of Marjorie Barretto and Kier Legaspi, revealed about her relationship with her father on her most recent vlog uploaded on Saturday.

Dani will be getting married soon but she said the her mother is the only one who is going to accompany her as she walks down the aisle. She explained that she made such decision because she never really established a relationship with Kier.

“My mom is walking me down the aisle because it’s only right that she walks me down the aisle because she raised me on her own. Everything that I am, it’s all because of her. She is the most deserving to walk me down the aisle,” she said.

Dani revealed that she has not talked to her father for six years and they they did not end up in good terms during their last conversation.

“To be honest, my dad and I never really had a solid relationship. All I know is he’s my dad and that’s it. We had a brief relationship which was like two months. It was nice,” she said.

“I’m not going to say naman na I didn’t love him. I’m not going to say I don’t love him. It’s just that, I guess na when you’re apart for so long and you already grew up and nasanay ka nang wala ‘yung tao sa life mo, you just feel like… not naman you don’t need the person, but you feel like you’re okay without them,” she added.

Nevertheless, she said that this kind of relationship between her and Kier is for the better since they “are not hurting each other anymore by not just talking.”

“Maybe it’s for the best. We tried the talking thing and it didn’t end well for us. We ended up not in good terms and maybe that’s just it. That’s how it’s meant to be,” she said.

Dani said that it was her mother who raised her on her own.

“Tumanda na rin kasi ako. Parang at this point, I am 25. I am getting married, my life is just starting. Okay na ‘yung life ko. I grew up fine. My mom really raised me well. Not that I never thought I needed him. Of course at one point in my life, I thought I needed a dad. But kung wala diyan sa harap mo, hindi mo naman puwedeng damdamin ‘yun. Life goes on,” she said.
