  • Jennica Garcia shared a personal message to her and her husband Alwyn Uytingco's two daughters on Instagram last April 9, 2021, hinting that their family's going through a rough patch.

    She said in the caption, "Athena and Severina, know that Nanay has no regrets. Yes, I get scared when I think about the coming months and years because this is not how I planned the two of you to grow up.

    "But despite the heartache I am going through, I am able to keep the Joy in my heart and will continue to praise God with every cry because even if my plans have failed, I know that our loving Father's plan for us is always good.

    "His decision to allow this to happen in our life is not to destroy us. Never to destroy us mga anak. Instead of sadness, lets rejoice because God is close to the brokenhearted.

    "Jesus, My Lord, I look forward to the day when you will reveal to me the answer to all my why's. I will patiently wait for your answer and in doing so, I will praise your name. JESUS CHRIST, my Redeemer, my Savior!"

    But one of Jennica's followers called her out, saying that "personal message to daughters should be said face to face, heart to heart and not posted on social media for personal consumption."

    The commenter even wondered if the actress's children would even bother to read the message meant for them.

    Jennica didn't let the comment pass. She replied, "My daughters are aged 5 and 2. Both do not know how to read. I posted this on my feed not just for my children to see one day but FOR MYSELF to be reminded of my mindset during this season in my life.


    "That I was faithful to the word of God on April 6th of 2021 AND MUST remain faithful in the years to come. I want to stumble on this post of mine again one day and say to myself: 'Wow, so this God's GOOD plan for us after all.'"

    She also hit back at the commenter: "Kayo po? Bakit di niyo try gamitin mukha niyo sa profile picture niyo? Galing niyo po magsalita kasi nagtatago kayo ano po? Alam mo kasi na may sa bastos yang tabas ng dila mo."

    Jennica's other followers, mostly women and apparently moms, were quick to defend her.

    One of them wrote, "As a woman, this is one way to release our stress, disappointments and negative vibes. Apart from that, this is also a reminder that GOD works in a mysterious ways. GOD is Good.

    "At darating ang araw na ang post na ito ay magiging katunayan sa mga bata na ang ina nila ay tunay na dakila na nalampasan lahat ng pagsubok sa buhay. Mas mabuting mabasa ng mga bata ang hinaing ng isang ina hindi upang siraan ang Ama kundi patatagin ang mga buhay nila lalo't higit pareho silang mga batang babae."

    Another one gave this explanation: "She posted this not to gain attention but as her way of coping up with the situation. It has always been said that writing your emotions can help you release stress and other negative vibes. Not all women want social attention, she just probably needs to air out her emotions which all I think are normal."

    Still another follower agreed with Jennica's way of expressing herself on social media, adding that "doing the same also so I can look back on it someday and be reminded of the experience."
