WATCH: A Father's Day Q&A—Richard And Juliana Gomez Share Surprising Things About Each Other
"The best thing a father can do for a daughter is to always remind them of the good things they have to do," Richard says.
Those words, while simple, is Richard Gomez's little nugget of wisdom he'd like to share with other dads raising daughters like Juliana—a young lady on the cusp of adulthood, getting ready to find her own way in life, yet someone her dad trusts without question.
Richard and Juliana embody Metro.Style's ultimate father-daughter goals and appear in its exclusive Father's Day cover, proving just how powerful and touching a healthy parent-child relationship can be.
#RichardGomez (@richardgomezinstagram) plays many roles. He’s an accomplished actor, a decorated athlete, a trendsetting model, Ormoc City’s respected mayor, and an emerging artist, but the role he holds most closely to his heart is that of being a loving father to his daughter, Juliana (@gomezjuliana). This #FathersDay, Richard opens up about the joys of fatherhood and getting to know his daughter, and Juliana lets us in on why she’ll be her dad’s number one fan for life, unconditionally.

According to Juliana, Richard is everything she wants to be when she grows up; and to Richard, she's the embodiment of everything the legacy of fatherhood should be—full of hopes and dreams, beaming with self-confidence, and driven by the right set of values needed to excel in life yet remain humble and grounded.
With pride and respect for each other, Richard and Juliana say that they're more alike than they are contrasting. Cut from the same cloth, they ride the same wavelength, communicating, growing, and loving the other in ways unique to their relationship.
