“Same sila ng papa ko. Sobrang simple lang, hindi sila ma-showbiz. Nagka-jive kami agad.”
This was how Joshua Garcia described Julia Barretto’s father Dennis Padilla whom he recently met for the first time.
According to a report by Pep.ph, Joshua admitted meeting the comedian-actor on Father’s day, June 18. Together with Julia, they had dinner somewhere along Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
“’Nung Father’s Day, magkasama sila, kasama ako ‘dun. Nagkita-kita kami sa Morato, nag-dinner kami. Ipinakilala ako, nagka-bonding naman kami, tawanan kami agad,” the article cited Joshua.
Describing Dennis as very funny, kind, and approachable, the 19-year-old lad admitted that he was actually nervous at first.
Asked on whether he is courting Julia, Joshua said, “Nakaka-pressure siya magtanong, pero habang tumatagal ‘yung pag-uusap, napapalagay na ako.”
As they have exchanged numbers, Joshua also shared receiving a “thank you” text from him. “Feeling ko, nagtiwala na lang siya sa akin, alam niya naman," he said.
