Benjamín Vicuña will be the cover of the Chilean magazine Velvet for Father's Day along with all the children he had as a result of his relationships with Pampita Ardohain and China Suárez: Bautista, Beltrán, Benicio, Magnolia and Amancio.
The Chilean actor is on the cover of the special for the month of the Father, which is celebrated in June worldwide, there you can see him with his five children, all dressed in a similar range of colors: some with white clothes and others with more sand tones.
The phrase of the ex of Pampita who selected the edition of the neighboring country to accompany the image of the cover is: "My children are my life, I have no more than that." In the note they also addressed the unfortunate loss of their eldest daughter Blanca, to whom he dedicated a book that was published in May of this year.

Benjamín Vicuña's book dedicated to his daughter Blanca
In April of this year, the Chilean moved everyone by revealing that he would publish the book "Blanca, la niña que quería volar: 10 actos para conjurar el olvido" (Editorial Planeta).

With a post on his Instagram account, where he is followed by almost 3 million users, Vicuña announced and presented the cover of the first book written by him. With a prologue by psychologist Gabriel Rolón, the work is inspired by the mourning he went through after the death of his daughter Blanca, the result of his marriage to Pampita Ardohain.
Blanca, the girl who wanted to blow up the book published by Benjamín Vicuña to honor her little daughter, who died at age 6.
In Buenos Aires, the paper was presented by the actor at the Book Fair on Saturday, May 13, along with journalist Luis Novaresio. Then, the ex of China Suárez stayed in the place signing copies and talking to those who came to greet him.
"This is the most personal thing I've ever done. It has to do with the transformation and mourning for the death of my daughter," Benjamin Vicuña had said a short time ago in an interview with the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

"It is a giant tribute and, at the same time, a lifeline for many people, families and parents who have gone through the same thing as me," he said at the time.
"I think these healing or self-help books can be of great help," he added. And I decided to do it because a lot of people wrote to me... Inevitably, I became an ambassador of pain."
About this very personal work, Pampita expressed his approval to his ex-partner and father of her children. "He has my absolute support, because I respect very much that he has decided to take that step. If it does him good and he finds it necessary, I think it's barbaric," he said.

For its part, to remember Blanquita, the wife of Roberto García Moritán has inaugurated two squares. One in Pilar in 2021, the date on which the girl would have turned 15, and another this past May in Don Torcuato.
"The phrase that accompanies the games is always the same: 'With your light here we play,'" the model explained.
