Julia Baretto set the online world abuzz after posting a photo of herself with Gerald Anderson on Instagram.
As Gerald marked his 32nd birthday, Julia penned a message expressing her gratitude to having her "Between Maybes" co-star in her life.
"Every day I celebrate you, but today I'm extra grateful," Julia wrote.
Telling her boyfriend how proud she is of him, she added: "Happy Birthday, my love. I am so proud of you."

Julia going public with her relationship with Gerald Anderson comes after the latter opened up about her relationship with him through a tell-all interview with King of Talk Boy Abunda.
When asked whether Julia is the reason behind his smile, Gerald responded by saying: “Yes, Tito Boy... It's a yes."
He added by saying: “[I'm] very happy.”
Meanwhile, Gerald also addressed the issues surrounding his split with Bea Alonzo.
“At that point nung pumutok, I’ve had my moments na parang, ‘Oh my God. Paano ko nalagay ‘yung sarili ko sa ganitong [sitwasyon]? What did I do?’ I try to be a good person. Bakit? I’m not gonna say na wala akong mali. I know. Pero kailangang umabot sa ganun? I mean, did we really have to take the social media route or path?" Gerald said.
"Ang pait, ang lala. Ang pinakamasakit pa is what I’ve heard even behind the cam. ‘Yung mga nakarating sa akin, ‘yung intimate moments namin bilang boyfriend-girlfriend. Parang, kailangan ba talaga umabot sa ganito?” he added.
He also clarified Bea’s claims saying he ghosted her.
“Tito Boy, I can remember that moment like kahapon lang siya nangyari. But I can’t... I don’t have the guts to put someone in a bad light because gusto ko linisin ‘yung image ko or ‘yung side ko,” Gerald stated.
“Ganito lang po ‘yun. Ano po ba ang definition ng ghosting? Kasi ang dating sa akin is parang nasa gitna kami ng dinner tapos nag-decide ako mag-back out and ‘di magpakita kahit kailan. ‘Yun ba ang definition? Or is it walking away from a very unhealthy, toxic — not saying na siya ‘yung toxic, but being together, we were very toxic,” he said.
He went on: “Hindi narerespeto ‘yung explanation na binibigay mo, hindi tinatanggap. After months and months and months and months of being on the rocks and [puro] away... I mean, ‘yun lang. I’m just gonna leave it at that. Bahala na po kung paanong ano, but if ‘yun ‘yung ghosting, I’m guilty of one of those two.”
Speculations about the real-score between Julia and Gerald started in 2019 following the latter’s controversial breakup with Bea Alonzo.
