Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto just laughed about the theory of the latter’s father Dennis Padilla about the status of their relationship.
Joshua had recently admitted that he was courting Julia.
Actor-turned-director Dennis, in a recent interview, presumed that the two were already a couple because they were often seen holding hands.
“Ewan ko rin eh. Siguro naging kumportable kami na may hawak kami. Alam mo yung hawak namin yung isa’t isa?” said Joshua in an interview at the press launch of their film Love You To The Stars and Back on iFlix.
“Like eto, etong feeling na ‘to, nakakakaba ‘to. Kaya eto yung ano namin...” Joshua said while looking at their interlocking hands.
Julia, for her part, explained why they are often seen holding hands.
“Nakakakuha kami ng strength from each other,” the A Love to Last actress shared.
While they seem to be aware of Dennis’ said interview, the tandem believes that he didn’t confirm anything.
“Kinonfirm ba niya? Parang sabi niya, feeling niya lang,” said Julia.
Joshua, meanwhile, made light of the issue and joked, “At least, alam natin na may points ako sa tatay niya. Hahaha!”
Julia added, “I think my Papa likes Josh to the point that he wants to believe that kami na…”
Meanwhile, The Good Son actor also confirmed that he recently gave the seasoned actor-comedian a special drink.
“Ayun humingi ako ng alak si Tito ko tapos binigyan ko siya para sa The Barker. Ayun masaya kasi pogi point siyempre. Pinapangako ko talaga kay Tito Dennis na aalagaan ko ang anak niya,” he said.
Aside from their upcoming soap, the tandem revealed that they are part of the Sharon Cuneta and Robin Padilla reunion film.
