Happy Fathers' Day to these 10 celeb stepdads!

Gabby Eigenmann (second from right) and his family: wife Apples (third from left), stepchildren Josh (second from left) and Gabbie (second from right), children Liam (behind Apples) and Matti (middle).

Also in the photo: Gabby's sister Andi (right), her daughter Ellie (left), and Gabby's cousin (Geoff) middle.


These men deserve a round of applause for showing what an unconditional love is.

They have not just made a family complete, but also took their step-daddy duties a notch higher.

GABBY EIGENMANN legally adopted the two kids of Apples (second fro left), his wife of 17 years.

Aside from Josh (second from right) and Gabbie (right), the Kapuso actor is also a dad to his own sons Liam (middle) and Matti (third from right).

SENATOR KIKO PANGILINAN's relationship with his "eldest" KC Concepcion is one of the most admired in showbiz.
Here's a line from the message he posted on his social media accounts last Apirl 7, the Kapamilya star's 31st birthday.
"I became a dad first when you came into my life. I love you my big baby girl."

Another celebrity dad who has a good relationship with his stepson is TROY MONTERO.

Check out his most recent birthday message for Aubrey Miles's son:

"Happy Birthday Maurie!! I can't believe you're 15 yrs old. Last day of school, 1st day of your summer break and your Birthday all in one.

"I can't wait to teach you how to drive, ok not there yet but soon lol. Love you buddy!"

Meanwhile, Sherilyn Reyes considers herself the luckiest woman on Earth after meeting her Mr. Right, CHRIS TAN, who has been her partner/husband for 14 years.

Chris also has a "very inspiring" relationship with Sherilyn's son Ryle Paolo.


The former host/actress said in an interview with Philippine Daily Inquirer, "Once, Paolo told Chris, 'Dad, I may not have your DNA but I’m so much like you.'"

Some dads are more like tito to their stepchildren.

Batangas Governor Vilma Santos, for instance, has this to say about the relationship of his son Lucky, aka Luis Manzano, and her husband SENATOR RALPH RECTO:

"Lucky was 4 years old when he met his Tito Ralph. Ang magandang respeto kasi na binigay ni Ralph sa kanya, ‘ I’m your Tito but I’m not your Dad. In any decision na gagawin mo you want to tell me, tell me pero ang huli mong consultation mo sa Daddy mo pa rin.'

"In fairness with Edu, hanggang maka-graduate si Lucky, si Edu ang nagpa-aral kay Lucky."

JB MAGSAYSAY also knows where he stands.

In a interview with Bandila last year, he said, "I can never replace yung position nung daddy nila. Natutuwa ako because they acepted me."

"They" refers to Coleen Garcia and her brother Luis, the children of Maripaz Ortega, who became JB's wife in 2012.

Lastly, there are stepdads who have remained close to their stepsons even after they separated from their ex-wives.

Here's a touching greeting from Geneva Cruz's son Heaven to his biological dad Paco Arespacochaga and second dad KC MONTERO.

"Father's Day to both my two dads. The guy on the left [KC] is somebody who isn't related to me by blood but I don't like using the term 'step' unless it's to describe how he step in to a situation of having to raise a 3 year old kid..."

Early this year, JAMES YAP also got to have a gym workout with "Kuya Josh," the older brother of the cager's son Bimby and the eldest son of ex-wife Kris Aquino.


Lastly, Joey Marquez and Vandolph may not have a photo of them together, but Alma Moreno's son knows that he can always count on Tsong.

After Dolphy's death, Joey described how Vandolph was as a kid.

"Parating nakaakap, 'I love you' nang 'I love you.' Natutulog 'yan sa dibdib ko e gabi-gabi.

"Ang sarap nung feeling, kaya nung nilayo siya sa 'kin hinahanap-hanap ko 'yan," he said said.

Marquez also assured Vandolph then that he will continue to love him.

How about you, do you have a cool stepdad? Happy Fathers' Day to him and to all daddies!
