Marjorie Barretto took to social media to greet Gerald Anderson, the boyfriend of her daughter Julia, a happy birthday.
Gerald turned 33 last Monday, March 7. In her birthday message for the actor, Marjorie said: "Happy Birthday again! Thank you for all that you have been to our family. So thoughtful, fun, and ever so kind, especially to Erich (her youngest daughter). And for always introducing new adventures to us. Let's celebrate when you get back."
Responding to her message, Gerald wrote, along with a smiley face and a heart emoji: "Salamat po tita."
Since admitting his relationship with Julia in 2020, Gerald has been often seen spending time not just with the actress but also her family.
The actor was most recently seen spending Valentine's Day with the Barretto family at Marjorie's vacation house, the River Garden Resthouse, in Calumpit, Bulacan. Prior to this, he also joined the Barrettos for their Christmas Eve celebration back in December.
Meanwhile, aside from Marjorie, her daughter Julia also shared her birthday greetings for Gerald on Instagram.
Sharing a series of their pictures together, Julia said: "Happy birthday my love, my best friend."
Julia and Gerald, who co-starred in the Black Sheep movie Between Maybes, confirmed their relationship in March 2020, after more than a year of being romantically linked to each other.
Earlier, Gerald admitted that he already sees his girlfriend as “the one", but acknowledged that Julia is still very young, and that she still has so much to offer to the industry.
For her part, Julia admitted that she is willing to leave showbiz for a simple, more quiet life with her future family.
She has also expressed wanting to have a family of her own in the next five years. Noting that she will be 29 by then, Julia said: "That’s just really it. That is the perfect age. And I feel like if you want a lot of kids, you have to start early.”
