It was an extra special Father’s Day for Julia Montes.
The Kapamilya actress celebrated the occasion with her biological dad, Martin Schnittka, in London, U.K.
Julia was in town to do a Kapamilya Fiesta Show in Glasgow, Scotland, which is an hour and a half away from London by plane.
The Asintado actress later met her dad in London, where they spent a full day together.
It was on December 27, 2016 when Julia finally met her German father, Martin.
Thanks to her friends and cousin Michelle, Julia met her dad Martin after 21 years of searching for him.
Hindi ko aakalain na darating ang araw na ito , makikita at makakasama ko sya ... unang una gusto ko magpasalamat sa Panginoon na pinagkaloob nya ang pagkakataon na ito ... malinaw pa sa isip ko nung mga panahon na ipagdasal ko na mangyari ang araw na ito hanggang sa sumuko na ko at nawalan ng pagasa .... Maraming ways talaga ang Panginoon para sa atin ... iba hinihingi natin sobra sobra pa ang binibiyaya sa atin ... sa mga naging tatay tatayan ko salamat din sainyo dahil lalo kong naappreciate ang Papa ko dahil sainyo .... at sa Cocojul din na isa sa naging daan para magkausap kame and to my Cousin Michelle who did everything and everyway to make this day possible .... Thank you ! ... #goingtoendmy2016 #blessed
Born as Mara Hautea Schnittka in Pandacan, Manila, Julia’s biological parents are both deaf-mute.
Martin left Julia and her mom, Gemma Hautea, when she was still a baby.
Julia then grew up under the care of her maternal grandmother, Flory.
Despite what happened, the actress didn’t bear any grudges towards her biological father.
On Father’s Day, Julia posted a photo of Martin holding up a mug saying: “This is what an amazing dad looks like.”
In her caption, Julia said, “Yes it is [heart eyes emoji]
“Happy Father’s day Papa…
“The only man I will ever love this much [three heart emojis]”
