Gabby Concepcion's daughters (L-R) Garie, KC, and Cloie are very close. Even if the latter is based in Sweden, the three ladies are constantly in touch with each other. Meanwhile, Marjorie Barretto's daughters (R-L) Dani, Julia, and Claudia share the same interests.

In the movies, sisters who have different moms or dads are usually portrayed with complexity.

It's either they're fighting over attention or time or inheritance or all three.

But the stars we know who have half-sister/s in real life do not lead a complicated life at all.

Maybe it helped that some of them grew up together.

But some had to wait for the perfect timing and the "complete healing," as Zsa Zsa Padilla put it in one of her interviews, before acceptance happened.

This is about half-sisters who found an ally, a best friend, and a supporter in each other.
