Today, June 18, Julia Montes, Jennylyn Mercado, and Jessy Mendiola will have a more meaningful Father's Day.

Having the same initials is not the only common denominator of Julia Montes, Jennylyn Mercado, and Jessy Mendiola.

Today, June 18, the three lovely stars will be celebrating a meaningful Father's Day.

After several years of looking for her biological father, Julia's much-awaited reunion with German national Martin Schnittka took place in December 2016.

Julia got some help from CocoJul fans, friends, and a cousin named Michelle.

On Instagram, she recounted that moment with a sweet caption.

"After how many years...first hug, naramdaman ko na totoo na nga ang lahat, na-meet ko na siya ...I'm just proud to say he is my Dad ....nalaman ko kung gaano siya ka-responsible, nakita ko kung gaano siya ka-hands on sa mga kapatid ko, gaano ka strict, but loving Dad sakanila ... hindi ko man yun naramdaman, I'm just proud to say that I'm his Princess and he's my KING."

Together with her boyfriend Dennis Trillo, Jen asked Papa Noli to live with her in Manila.

The Kapuso actress grew up with her adoptive parents Roger and Lydia Mercado. Tatay Roger died in August 2008, while her Mommy Lydia passed away in October 2016.

On Instagram, Jen put out this message for her biological father, "Happy Fathers Day Papa Noli! I love you!"

Jessy's celebration with her Lebanese-British dad happened a week before Father's Day.

The Kapamilya actress also had the chance to introduce her boyfriend Luis Manzano.

The last she time she saw her dad was in 2014 after a 14-year separation.

On Instagram, she posted a collage of their photos and captioned, "Happy Father's Day, Papa!

"I remember when I was younger, whenever a plane would pass by, mom would tell me that it's you on your way to us.

"I would raise my arms up and scream at the top of my lungs, 'Papa!!! Papa!!I'm here, I'm here!'

"But as time went by, I realized that mom would say that to stop us from asking her where you were.

"We grew up loving you, and mom taught us to never get mad at you.

"I know it was hard for you to be so far away from us Papa, I know you worked hard day and night just to sustain us and our needs, and I thank you for that with all my heart. I love you very much."
