Former celebrity couple Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto caught their JoshLia fans by surprise after the two playfully bantered on social media on Monday night.
Their exchange was initiated by the actress who was promoting their new project Love Unlock on Kapamilya Online Live.
“Cheers @iamjoshuagarcia,” she wrote.
Joshua replied thanking Julia for following him back on Twitter.
“Sa IG follow back na din?” Julia joked, referring to when she unfollowed the actor a few months back.
Joshua continued to tease his ex, promising that he will treat her to a burger if she follows him back on Instagram.
“May pa-unfollow unfollow pa kasi. Sige, papaburger ako,” he joked.
Julia ended their exchange after she assured that she will follow him again tomorrow.
“Wag ka abangers tonight, bukas na kita follow back,” she said.
Their brief exchange immediately caught the attention of their friends and fans.
TV host Bianca Gonzales even reacted to the two’s online interaction.
“Kayong dalawa haaaaaaaa. Mahal ko kayong dalawa alam niyo yan at bilang ate ninyo naloloka ako sa Twitter exchange na ito,” she said.
Filmmakers Dan Villegas and Antoinette Jadaone expressed their “kilig.”
“Kinikilig ako sa inyong dalawa @iamjoshuagarcia,” Dan said.
While their fans were clearly at their idols’ loveteam comeback.
Joshua and Julia ended their relationship back in 2019. Both of them expressed that they are still in good terms with each other even after their reel and real-life breakup.
