Grace and Lovi Poe’s Loving Sisterhood Shines In Lovi’s Wedding

During a speech during Lovi Poe’s wedding, Senator Grace Poe said their dad Fernando Poe Jr. would have been proud to see his daughter walk down the aisle.

Senator Grace Poe delivered a touching message for her sister, actress Lovi Poe, who married Montgomery Blencowe in England over the weekend.

In a reel posted by Tim Yap, Grace was heard about the first time she met Lovi. “I never knew that I had a sister until our dad passed away,” she said of their father, actor Fernando Poe Jr., who died in 2004. “And being an only girl, well, I knew I had a brother. I didn’t care because it was a guy,” she joked referring to their other sibling Ronian.

According to Grace, when she met Lovi, she found a “really young innocent child, weeping for our dad.”

“I felt so sad and so maternal. I could say maternal because Lovi is just a few years older than my son.”

“So I felt at that time not have I only gained a sister. I almost felt I had another child. Because I see the qualities of the father I loved.”
