For the first time in 15 years, Ruffa Gutierrez’s daughters marked Father’s Day with their dad, businessman Yilmaz Bektas.

Their half-sister Ilknaz shared some photos of their mini celebration on Monday, June 20 on Instagram with the caption: “We are so lucky to have you in our lives. Happy Father’s Day.”

Lorin commented “So so so blessed,” while Venice left heart emojis in the same thread.

The Bektas sisters are having a reunion with their dad after being apart for over a decade. They have been sharing some stunning pictures from their trip on social media, with some picturesque spots of Yilmaz’s hometown in the background.

Ruffa and Yilmaz tied the knot in 2003, but parted ways in 2007. While they cited “cultural differences,” the actress later revealed she dealt with physical and emotional abuse during their marriage, which was annulled in 2012.

If you, or someone you know, is being abused during this time of health emergency, don’t hesitate to seek help to stop the abuse.
