Days after news of her aunt Claudine Barretto being confined at the hospital made rounds, Kapamilya star Julia Barretto claimed that she is now on her way to recovery.
At the recently-concluded press conference of her upcoming debut film Para Sa Hopeless Romantic, Julia revealed that her tita is now out of the hospital.
“She's out of the hospital. She's at home now," she said.
Julia also added, "We were FaceTiming when she was at home and she's on her way to complete recovery."
According to Julia she has maintained her communication with her Tita Claudine.
"I was just speaking to her like an hour ago, we were on FaceTime because nag-FaceTime kami. Ipinakita namin, kami together [ni Iñigo Pascual], we did a Dubsmash kaya tinawagan ko siya," she said. "Sabi ko, 'Check mo yung Dubsmash namin.'"
Dubsmash is the hit application these days wherein users lip sync popular songs or movie lines then upload it online.
What's more according to Julia is that her Tita wished her good luck for her first foray into the big screen.
“She did, she did naman. And she wished me good luck for the presscon," she said.
Claudine and Julia were last spotted together during the latter's 18th birthday celebration last March.
Meanwhile, it seems that things are getting better for Julia's mother Marjorie Barretto and the latter's father, Miguel Barretto.
Marjorie recently posted a photo of her father on her Instagram account while gearing up for the recently-concluded Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao bout.
Marjorie's relationship with her parents Inday snd Miguel turned sour last year after she sided with her older sister Gretchen Barretto over their family feud involving Claudine's marriage with estranged husband Raymart Santiago.
