ACTRESS Julia Montes has received a very special gift this Christmas.

In an Instagram post last Tuesday, Julia shared a photo of her with her biological father Martin Schnittka, a German national.

“Hindi ko aakalain na darating ang araw na ito, makikita at makakasama ko siya. Unang-una gusto ko magpasalamat sa Panginoon, na pinagkaloob niya ang pagkakataon na ito,” Julia wrote on her caption.

It was the first time for the 21-year-old actress to meet her biological father in person. She had been looking for her real father through online leads but to no avail.

“Malinaw pa sa isip ko nung mga panahon na ipagdasal ko na mangyari ang araw na ito hanggang sa sumuko na ako at nawalan ng pag-asa. Maraming ways talaga ang Panginoon para sa atin. Iba hinihingi natin, sobra sobra pa ang binibiyaya sa atin,” she added.

Julia thanked God, the father figures in her life, the CocoJul (Coco Martin and Julia) loveteam fans and her cousin Michelle for making the moment possible.

Born and raised in Pandacan, Manila, Julia’s real name is Mara Hautea Schnittka.

She grew up in the care of her mother, Gemma Hateau and her grandmother Flory after her father left them when she was still a baby. Both of
her parents were deaf-mute.
