Gerald Anderson took to social media to greet his girlfriend, Julia Barretto, who is celebrating her 24th birthday on Wednesday, March 10.
On Instagram, Gerald posted a photo of Julia at the beach, and in the caption wrote, "Happy birthday."
He tagged Julia in his post before adding the hashtag, #YouAreABlessing.
Last Sunday, March 7, it was Julia who shared her sweet birthday message for Gerald as the actor turned 32.
Sharing a rare photo of their sweet moment together, the actress wrote: “Everyday I celebrate you, but today I am extra grateful. Happy birthday my love, I am SO PROUD OF YOU.”
For the first time since rumors romantically linking them surfaced, Gerald admitted in a one-on-one interview with host Boy Abunda that was broadcast Friday, March 5, that currently, his heart is happy because of Julia.
Asked if Julia is the reason behind his smile, Gerald, in an apparent confirmation of their romance, said: "Yes, Tito Boy... It's a yes. [I'm] very happy."
The two, who co-starred in the Black Sheep movie "Between Maybes," first sparked rumors of a romance in mid-2019, amid the actor's controversial breakup with his former girlfriend, actress Bea Alonzo.
At the time, both Gerald and Julia denied having romantic ties, with the former clearing the latter as a supposed third party in his three-year relationship with Bea.
In an interview following his admission, Gerald said at this point in his life, he is happy to be able to move forward with the truth and just enjoy life instead of always trying to please the public.
“Kailangan tuloy pa rin yung buhay. Wala akong tinatapakan na tao. I’m just trying to live life and provide for my family, enjoy life,” he said.
