Reunions have a way of tugging at your heartstrings, and all the more when they've been years in the making.
Recently, Ruffa Gutierrez hinted that her daughters Lorin Gutierrez and Venice Bektas will soon be reuniting with their father, Yilmaz Bektas, in Turkey. It's not clear whether Ruffa will be joining her daughters for the trip.
"After 15 long years apart, a beautiful reunion will finally take place in Istanbul this weekend. #TogetherAgain" Ruffa wrote in an IG reel, which featured a slideshow of photos from Lorin and Venice's early years in Turkey, to photos of Yilmaz in the end.
We also see a cute exchange between Ruffa and her girls in the comments.
"Please start packing na, cutie," Ruffa told Venice, while to Lorin, she said, "Are you packed? Come to my room, please."
In 2019, Ruffa opened up about the domestic abuse she allegedly suffered from Yilmaz, saying that she was still afraid of him even after all those years, and even after he's invited her to go back to Turkey several times. In the same year, Lorin clarified in a vlog that she and her sister have a great relationship with their dad and that Ruffa never tried to stop them from talking to him.
In 2021, Ruffa spoke about possibly reconnecting with her ex-husband, whom she has referred to as her "greatest love".
"Nag-uusap kami ni Yilmaz ulit, and nare-realize niya that time is so precious. That we're getting old na, and he wants to spend time with the kids. So, sabi ko kay Yilmaz…let's try to be co-parents to our children first, you know. Kasi hanggang ngayon, ako daw ang pinaka-greatest love niya."
