Ysabel Ortega is the daughter of Lito Lapid, action star and former senator and Michelle Ortega, actress and singer. She first appeared on primetime television as Angela in the hit series “On The Wings of Love” starring James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
Recently, Ysabel guested in “Tonight With Boy Abunda.” She was on the late-night talk show to promote the first week of “Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Araw Gabi.” She is part of the cast with Hashtags member Paulo Angeles. The drama is topbilled by JM de Guzman and Barbie Imperial.
Ysabel was in tears during the interview as she told of her father ignoring her birthday and holiday greetings, and how she misses him.
According to Isabel: “I always think of my dad so whenever it’s his birthday, I always make it a point to greet him,” she shared on “Tonight With Boy Abunda.” “And every holidays, lagi ko pa rin po binabati.”
When asked if Ysabel gets replies to her messages, sent through Lapid’s aide because she has no direct contact with her dad, the actress said no.
But despite the cold shoulder, Ysabel maintained that she still loves her dad and that she respects him for being one of the reasons that made her decide to pursue a career in showbiz.
Ysabel told his father: “Papa, if you’re watching, I really miss you and nandito lang po ako. No matter what happens I will always be here, I will always be your daughter, I will always love you, and I will always have respect for you.”
