My Daddy Dearest is a Filipino dramedy series created and written by Denoy Navarro - Punio, under the helm of Don Michael Perez and produced by GMA Network. This series headlines Ogie Alcasid and Jolina Magdangal with JC Tiuseco, and Milkcah Wynne Nacion. The series premiered on June 11, 2012 replacing Alice Bungisngis and her Wonder Walis on GMA early primetime block and June 13, 2012 worldwide via GMA Pinoy TV.[1]

Originally titled as Bongga Ka Tay! (lit. Dad, You Are Fabulous!, and also from the combination words Bong which is the name of the main character, and the Filipino gay lingo bongga which means fabulous) but was later changed to My Daddy Dearest.

Inspired on Sebastián Ortega's hit telenovela, Lalola, the series centers on Bong, played by Ogie Alcasid and his daughter Daisy, played by Milkcah Wynne Nacion. They've never been so close to each other and Bong, being a single parent and has no idea on how to raise his daughter all by himself. Daisy tried her best to get her dad's attention but because of one certain wish, everything goes beyond their imagination which changes Daisy's dad into a woman.

The series concluded on August 17, 2012 and replaced by Korean family drama, Smile, DongHae on its timeslot. It ran for 10 weeks with 50 episodes overall. Local afternoon-primetime series would take a break until Paroa: Ang Kuwento ni Mariposa aired on the same timeslot occupied by the series.


Bong, the son of a rich man who grew up without the guidance and care of his mother.

In the story, Bong is just like his father. He is a smooth "lady-killer" who lives the good life until he meets and falls in love with Rose who is a simple, loving woman who has a unique gift for growing and tending plants. Their love continues to blossom with the birth of a beautiful daughter named Daisy.

Unfortunately, fate has other plans for him and his family. Rose dies in a tragic accident during Daisy’s first birthday. As a result, Bong goes back to his old playboy ways, leaving his daughter to fend for herself. He is unaware of the daily torments that Daisy goes through in the hands of her Lola Mercedes, her Tita Daphne, and cousin Lily, who all want nothing more than to possess all of Bong’s inheritance, including the family company.

Despite the luxurious life she's living, Daisy feels lonely because of the absence of her father. Often, she finds refuge in her beloved mother’s garden, which unknown to her, is occupied by a small magical pixie named Winnie. Knowing Daisy’s pain, Winnie decides to help her by granting her one wish: for Daisy’s dad to become a mom instead!

Bong’s life turns upside down as he transforms from a Macho-Papa to a Sexy-Mama!

Meanwhile, Mercedes and her kin seize the opportunity and use Bong’s identity crisis as an excuse to take over the family company.[2]
