When you say Ogie Alcasid, the first thing that comes to mind is singer, then comedian. And the last? Lucky.
Why? Because Ogie married Michelle van Eimeren, former Miss Universe candidate when the pageant was held in the Philippines in 1994. His malambing demeanor and golden voice must have truly charmed the lady. Before long, they married and had two lovely children, Leila and Sarah.
For a time, the family of four settled in Australia, Michelle’s home country. But Ogie usually returned to the Philippines to do projects. Sadly, the couple separated in 2007, and the kids remained with their mom in Land Down Under.

Leila is the older of the two at 19 years old. She is currently in the Philippines to try her luck in the showbiz industry, venturing into singing and acting. Unlike her mother, the young girl feels she’s not cut out for beauty pageants.
“I love acting. I'm taking workshops,” she said, likewise open to the idea of doing a movie with her father Ogie in the future.
Ogie’s second child is Sarah Alcasid. She’s now 15 years old and stays with Michelle in Australia. Sarah remains under the radar and it appears that she’s still in high school.
Three years after the couple’s separation and annulment, Ogie remarried. But this time, it was to fellow singer, Regine Velasquez. In 2010, they had their wedding rites at a resort in Nasugbu, Batangas. A year later, they had a son named Nathaniel James. Nate, as his family loves to call him, is now 5 years old.
Back in 2015, Ogie reunited with his daughters in Australia when he vacationed with Regine and Nate. It was one for the books because the Alcasid family also met Michelle’s current husband, Mark Morrow.

It seemed that Regine and Michelle bear no grudges with each other. In fact, Michelle and Mark are godparents to Nate.
To celebrate his 50th year, Ogie went to Paris with all his three children, former wife Michelle, and Regine, proving that all is well in the Alcasid family.
