- Ogie Alcasid's daughter, Leila Alcasid is currently staying in the Philippines
- Leila grew up in Australia together with her mom, Michelle van Eimeren
- Ogie shares some details regarding their condition over Leila's stay
The daughter of Ogie Alcasid with former wife Michelle van Eimeren is currently in the Philippines.
Leila Alcasid seems to be following her father's footsteps as she just officially signed to Star Music recently.
However, since Leila grew up with her mom in Australia, there will be minor changes once she stays here for good.
One would be living with her stepmom Regine Velasquez.
Ogie said that Michelle reminded Leila that she should follow Regine during her stay, which ABS-CBN reported.
"Binilinan ni Michelle at sinabihan din si Leila na 'o siya muna ang nanay mo ngayon.' So siyempre kung anuman ang sabihin ni Regine doon sa anak ko, na anak-anakan na rin niya, ay susundin niya," Ogie explained.
During Michelle's last visit in the Philippines where she guested on Magandang Buhay, she thanked Regine and Ogie for taking good care of Leila.
"Napakahirap sa isang nanay magpaalam sa anak. Pero sa pagmamahal ko sa kanya, kailangang i-support siya para hanapin ang dreams niya. Siyempre, proud naman ako. Hindi masyadong mahirap kasi alam ko naman na nandito yung isang set ng magulang niya. Napakabait ni Reg. Mahal na mahal ko siya."
According to Ogie, they are currently looking for a school where Leila could enroll.
"Ngayon ay pumipili na kami ng eskuwelahang papasukan niya. Siyempre 'yung maganda ay 'yung malapit lang sa bahay namin."
Former beauty queen Michelle van Eimeren is the former wife of Ogie Alcasid, they got married in 1996.
They have two daughters, Leila and Sarah Alcasid.
In 2007, the two have separated.
Ogie remarried to Regine Velasquez on December 22, 2010.
They welcomed their son Nathaniel James on November 8, 2011.
Michelle is also happily married to husband Mark Morrow.
