Regine Velasquez featured her stepdaughter Leila Alcasid in her viral vlog on YouTube.
KAMI learned that Regine and Leila talked about a sensitive topic – step-parenting.
According to the famous singer, she did not try to act like a mother to Leila because she already has a mother, Michelle Van Eimeren – Ogie Alcasid’s former wife.
Instead of acting like a mother, Regine tried her best to be a good friend to Leila.
“Your mom called me. She said to me that she’s an adult, but not really. She needs guidance…
“Actually we had a conversation about this, eh, na ayaw kong maging nanay niya kasi meron na siyang nanay, eh.
“Parang she really didn't need me to be her mom kasi she already has her mom. So ang naging style ko was just to be a friend, which is easier for me and easier for her," Regine said in the vlog.
The Asia’s Songbird also discussed her past issue with Leila, saying that she got hurt when she saw her stepdaughter not having enough self-respect.
“I felt like I needed to tell you there was no direction whatsoever, you were having fun and it’s fine but you also need to give importance to yourself.
“Very conservative talaga ako… Babae ka, iningatan ka ng tatay mo at ng nanay mo, at hanggang ngayon iniingatan ka.
“Hindi ka namin basta papatulugin kung saan-saan, hindi ka nga pinapakagat sa lamok. That’s how much we love you and this is how much important you are to us. And then you go out and parang feeling ko, you don’t know your worth, as a woman and as a person…
“It was hurting me seeing that kasi anak na ang tingin ko sa’yo e. You’re like a piece of jewelry to us,” Regine revealed.
