For Ruffa Gutierrez, her daughters' reunion with their father Yilmaz Bektas after 15 years of being apart was "worth the wait," noting the whole process took "patience" and a "whole lot of faith."

In a TikTok video also posted on her Instagram on June 13, Gutierrez shared a montage of Lorin and Venice with Bektas, their half-sister Ilknaz, and their other Turkish relatives.

The video, set to Eddie Tom's rendition of You're Still the One, started with the family hopping into the car of Bektas, who waves at the camera as he's driving.

It also showed them having lunch together, as well as cruising on a yacht. There's also a slideshow of Bektas being sweet with Lorin and Venice.

"Trust in God’s perfect timing," Gutierrez wrote in her post. "It took patience and a whole lot of faith, but everything was worth the wait."

The actress reused the hashtag #NewBeginnings from her last post, along with the new hashtags #AtPeace and #ReunitedAtLast.

She said Lorin will vlog about her trip "soon."

Last June 10, Gutierrez said her girls "are super looking forward" to reuniting with Bektas, their "Baba," and Turkish loved ones after more than a decade.

Gutierrez and Bektas were married in 2003 and in 2007 said they already parted ways. Their marriage was annulled in 2012.
