Some years ago, Benjamin Vicuna and Pampita Ardohain experienced the worst fear a parent faces: losing a child and not being able to do anything about it. The incident occurred after they returned from a vacation in Mexico where Blanquita, the eldest daughter of the couple, contracted a bacterium against which she could not fight.
Although her mother is much more hermetic about this issue because of the pain it still causes her, Benjamin Vicuna yes, she usually uses her social networks to dedicate beautiful words to the little girl in special moments. This time, the Chilean actor celebrated his 16th birthday in a kind of melancholy that moved all his followers.
“Today time tells me that you are turning 16, the same time that evaporates memories with a cruelty not suitable for children. Time that accommodates and adorns. My little girl who taught me how not to be afraid of death, my sweet little girl who I was looking sideways at the TV, my inflatable princess, my enchanted elf, my angel with toy wings,” he wrote. Benjamin Vicuna.
The video where Blanquita can be seen playing in the sand with one of her brothers reached 200 thousand likes in a very short time, although what really moved her were the final words she had the founder of the Mori Cultural Center: “You are love in its simplest expression. Love that transmutes and does not die. Love that dazzles death, love that moves and moves me. Happy birth Blanca Vicuña Ardohain, reborn in all sunrises, reborn at every sign from God, every time we manage to beat time and understand that all this is just a dance step”.
The painful path faced by Vicuña and Pampita
Although their marriage went through a stormy divorce and moments of great rancor, currently the actors have a very cordial relationship for their three children and the memory of Blanquita who still, despite everything, continues to unite them in a very special way.
Even to celebrate the little girl’s 15th birthday, they decided to donate a square with swings and slides for the enjoyment of the children of a school in Pilar. As Pampita commented, the idea arose when a friend told her that a nun was desperate asking the leaders of the entity for a place of recreation for the children who were under her care.
