After months of admitted awkwardness toward each other because of the publicized rift, loveteam partners McCoy De Leon and Elisse Joson are in a better place now. The two are now on speaking terms because of work (their film Sakaling Maging Tayo under Black Sheep is showing on January 16) and have been observably comfortable with each other again. Today, as Elisse celebrates her birthday, McCoy posted a sweet birthday message on Instagram and an unexpected surprise video on Twitter.

On Instagram, McCoy posted a throwback photo of the two of them enjoying in Bali, Indonesia. Placed as caption is his expression of happiness for Elisse even if they’re both headed toward different directions.

On Twitter, McCoy’s surprise is a video greeting from a man who can be deduced as Elisse’s estranged dad. Elisse openly talked about her parents being separated during the digital conference for primetime series  The Good Son in 2017 and revealed that she grew up without a relationship with her biological father. Attached to the  video message is McCoy’s note, “Nabanggit mo dati isa to sa kasiyahan mo. Kaya ito regalo ko para sa kaarawan mo @ElisseJoson” WATCH:

Here’s the transcript:
“Bigyan mo rin sana ako ng pagkakataon na lubos kang makilala. Sa mga darating na panahon ay maaaring mag-retire na rin ako sa aking trabaho at sana ay mabigyan mo ako ng pagkakataong mameet ka personally at nawa ay magpatuloy nag maganda nating ugnayan para naman makabawi ako sa aking mga pagkukulang. Sana, Elisse, ay maihingi mo na rin ako ng pahintulot kay  Mommy Cristine mo na mabigyan ako ng pagkakataong magkausap tayo at iparating mo na rin sa kanya ang aking pasasalamat at napalaki ka niyang isang mabuting bata, isang mabuting tao. Pati na rin sa mga Titas at Titos mo. Hangarin ko lang naman na magkakila-kilala tayo nang lubos. Hanggang dito na lamang at sana ay maging maligaya ka sa iyong kaarawan. Pagpalain ka ng Panginoong Diyos. I love you.

UPDATE: Elisse Joson posted cryptic messages on Twitter which can easily be connected to McCoy’s birthday greeting post. Looks like the public posting did not sit well with her.
