Joshua Garcia admitted that he has been courting Julia Barretto. “Ngayon po, nanliligaw [ako],” he stated at the press conference of his new movie 'Love You To the Stars and Back' on Sunday, August 20, 2017.
The actor shared that he started courting the actress in January this year. “Simula nong , nito, this year,” he said.
After eight months of courting, asked if how's the development, Joshua replied, “Ganon pa rin po. Nanliligaw pa rin po pero malalim na ‘yung pinagsamahan namin. Mas kilala na namin ‘yung isa't isa.”
Joshua was then asked by the press why they are still in the courting stage to which he admitted that he is still afraid to ask Julia.
“Nakakatakot pa rin kasing magtanong sa kanya kasi di mo rin kasi ini-expect kung ano ang pwede niyang sabihin eh. Pwede siyang mag-hindi eh. Pero sa ngayon ‘yung trabahong pumapasok sa amin ang hirap sayangin eh. Kasi nakakatakot kasi talagang magtanong. Kasi lahat naman tayo natatakot ma-reject. Ako kasi, ako ‘yung taong ma-insecure, mababa ‘yung confidence ko,” he stated.
Meanwhile, in the same press conference, Julia was asked if Joshua is a priority for her. The actress responded, “If I’m being very honest, I’ve learned to prioritize my work but he’s become such an important person in my life and it’s not like nakakasagabal din naman siya sa trabaho ko, so I don’t see any problem naman kung if ever pagsabayin ‘yun.”
