Actress Julia Barretto, the other half of JoshLia, has confirmed that her onscreen partner Joshua Garcia is courting her.
In an article written by Melba Llanera of PEP, it was disclosed that Barretto, in a press conference for JoshLia’s upcoming movie Love You To The Stars And Back, said that she allowed him to court her because she has feelings for him, too.
“I’ll be honest na lang. Pinayagan ko siyang manligaw kasi may gusto din naman ako sa kanya,” she disclosed.
[I’ll be honest. I allowed him to court me because I also have feelings for him.]
Barretto said she is happy that her whole family accepted Garcia.
“Very well-loved naman siya by my family, very accepted. ‘Pag may gatherings, hinahanap na rin siya [When there is a family gathering, they look for him],” she shared.
Earlier, Garcia was also introduced to Barretto’s father, Dennis Padilla.
“Okay naman. Mabait saka mahiyain. Actually, ‘di ko alam kung nahihiya siya o natatakot siya sa akin. Anyway, very respectful na bata. Gusto ko siya, very low key,” Padilla recalled their first meeting.
[Our first meeting was okay. He’s kind and shy. Actually, I don’t know if he’s shy or if he was afraid of me. Anyway, he’s very respectful. I like him, very low key.]
He said he is happy seeing all the efforts of Garcia; adding that he is also glad because he sees how happy Barretto is.
“Okay naman, basta mamahalin mo lang ang anak ko, wala naman tayong problema…. Twenty years old na naman si Julia. She’s a very intelligent woman and I know alam niya kung ano ang mga dapat at ‘di dapat gawin,” he further expressed.
[For me, it’s okay for as long as you will love my daughter, we won’t have any problem…. Also, Julia is 20 years old already. She’s a very intelligent woman and I know that she knows what she should do and what she must not.]
