Bianca Lapus grieves death of dad, unborn baby
Bianca Lapus expressed profound grief after she suffered from pregnancy loss on Sept. 19, the same day her father Zoilo Lapus passed away.
The actress-producer disclosed this through her Facebook page on Wednesday, Sept 20, as she thanked those who have reached out to her and extended their prayers.
“I am sorry I haven’t been really active on social media as I have been focused on my health and pregnancy,” she began, sharing her brother’s post on the details of their dad’s wake. However, the post appears to have been taken down.
“Yesterday was a sad and heartbreaking day. I lost both my baby [and] my dad,” Bianca continued. “Thank you for all the prayers in this difficult time.”
Bianca also penned an open letter to her dad in a separate post, admitting that she was “still lost for words.”
“Hi Dadiyo, I still can’t believe you’re gone. I am forever grateful to God that he blessed me with a dad like you,” she said. “Rest in Peace with our creator together with my unborn baby Z. I love you both.”
Fans and friends offered their condolences to Bianca and her family via the comments section.
Bianca has three sons—namely Elijah, Exequiel and Ethan—with her non-showbiz husband Jimmy Valesquez. Her eldest child, Isaiah, is her son from her previous marriage to “It’s Showtime” host Vhong Navarro. /ra
