(UPDATED) A day after their “relationship reveal,” photos of Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson doing relief distribution together emerged online.
In a set of undated photos shared by Kapamilya Online World on social media on Saturday, March 6, the two were twinning in their Coast Guard Auxiliary shirts during relief operations with the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary, the civilian support group of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).
Gerald is an auxiliary officer of the Philippine Coast Guard with the rank of lieutenant.
Department of Transportation (DOTr) Asec. Goddes Hope Libiran also shared the photo on Saturday on her official page to thank the “PCG Auxiliary family for being so helpful and generous.” PCG is an agency attached to DOTr.
On Sunday, the PCG confirmed the event by releasing the official photos on social media, saying it was held at an Aeta community in Iba, Zambales on Saturday, March 6, as part of Gerald’s birthday celebration.
The actor turned 32 years old Sunday.
The PCG said in a Facebook post that they “supported the relief operations in celebration of the 32nd birthday of Lieutenant Commander Gerald Anderson of the PCG Auxiliary (PCGA) in Barangay San Agustin, Iba, Zambales yesterday, 06 March 2021.”
“With the generous participation of the World Vision Philippines and actress, Julia Barretto, a total of 300 Aeta families residing at the Lupang Pangako Resettlement Area in Barangay San Agustin received basic commodities such rice, canned goods, instant noodles, biscuits, coffee, chocolate drink, and hygiene supplies during said initiative,” they added.
Last Friday, March 5, Gerald revealed in a one-on-one interview with TV host Boy Abunda that Julia is the person who’s making him “very happy”.
The revelation came after more than a year of dating speculations since they starred in the 2019 film Between Maybes.
Julia also got caught in the middle of Gerald and then-girlfriend Bea Alonzo’s controversial breakup.
