Megastar Sharon Cuneta and 20-year-old daughter Frankie "Kakie" Pangilinan share a sweet relationship, and it's been evident in their social media interactions. It's understandable for them to miss each other even more now that they're spending time apart. Frankie is currently in New York where she's attending university and Sharon is based in the Philippines. But luckily, the Megastar had an opportunity to reunite with one of her daughters, and she's making sure her visit counts.
Sharon flew to the US for the birthday of a friend, but since she's dropping by New York for a stop, she decided to surprise her daughter Frankie with a visit. "On my way to New York this morning to surprise KAKIE!!!" Her Instagram caption says, together with a video of her in a private plane with friends. Despite flying to New York for a different occasion, the Megastar said she'd still find a way to see Kakie either way. She adds, "I still would’ve come to NY for my girl even if I’d had to fly with a bird!"
While they haven't posted new photos as of writing, Sharon took her time to reply to people's comments on her post and gave updates about her reunion with her daughter. In one of her replies, she shared how "nakaka-touch" Kakie was for going the extra mile to make sure she was taken care of while she's in New York. Her comment reads, "Siya pa nag-lotion sa akin last night at kung ano ano pa. She even walked to a grocery nearby after midnight na to get me a gallon of water and some sodas habang naka-FaceTime kami the whole time at ninenerbyos ako even if we're in one of the safest areas!"
In another comment, she said that they're currently inseparable and are having a good time while catching up. "Super nakapulupot kaming mag-ina at tawa kami [nang] tawang nagkukuwentuhan!" How sweet!
Frankie flew to New York in August 2021 to resume face-to-face classes, and her family was emotional over her departure. The Megastar also posted a candid photo of her and Kakie crying while wrapped in each other's arms. She wrote, "My Kakie, my Baba, is flying back to New York right about now…& if my heart had already been breaking for days over her leaving and other matters, today it is in pieces."
