If you thought that the good-natured Moira dela Torre has a perfect life, then you thought wrong.
KAMI learned that Moira experienced a difficult childhood due to the annulment of her parents.
When her dad lost the custody battle, he tried to kidnap Moira. This forced her mom to go to Olongapo and keep her indoors most of the time.
Fortunately, her father changed and was able to reunite with her 12 years later.
“When my parents were annulled when I was 3 and my mom got custody, my dad tried to kidnap me. LOL
“So, to protect me, my mom and I went into hiding in olongapo where i stayed mostly indoors for the next few years. Mrs. Doubtfire was my best friend. I had the whole movie memorized. Although I didn't understand what was happening then, i remember understanding that I was in a similar situation as Mrs. Doubtfire's kids, secretly wishing my dad would show up dressed as a nanny.
“The movie's happy ending gave me hope that I would... so I waited. True enough, 12 years later, he came back into my life. No more kidnapping or hidden agendas.. he never dressed up as a nanny either but God had healed both him and my mom and i've had two homes since then. One unforgettable moment happened last August in San Francisco, where we got to visit Mrs. Doubtfire's home.
“This time spent with my dad, however brief it was, was one of the most surreal moments of my life. It was when it sunk in how faithful God really is. It was a dream to see him again in good terms with everyone, in the proper conditions. No cases. No papers. No issues. No drama,” Moira wrote.
Moira is best known for her song “Malaya.”
Her other singles include “Home,” “Sundo,” “Torete” and “Titibo-tibo.”
“Titibo-tibo” was the grand winner in the Himig Handog 2017.
