Gutierrez said the reunion, which came after 15 years, “took patience and a whole lot of faith, but everything was worth the wait”.

In a video on Instagram, Bektas was seen waving from the driver’s seat while their daughters Lorin and Venice sat in the backseat. The father and daughters reunited on a trip in Istanbul, Turkey. The family also went on a yacht outing, with Lorin and Venice seen with their half-sister Ilknaz on the deck.
