Jay Sonza retracts pregnancy claim about Julia Barretto


Jay Sonza has apologized for claiming that Kapamilya actress Julia Barretto is pregnant with Gerald Anderson’s baby. 

The veteran broadcast journalist earlier congratulated Julia and Gerald in a now-deleted Facebook post, fueling online speculations that the rumored sweethearts are expecting a baby.  

Following the furor, Julia and Gerald almost at the same time took to their Instagram accounts to address the issue. 

Julia shared a photo of her flaunting her toned abs which she captioned “FAKE NEWS :)”.

Gerald, on the other hand, insinuated on how “fake news” spreads faster during these times.


The Kapamilya artist management arm Star Magic also released a statement denying the preganancy rumors, saying “definitely it’s not true.”


Sonza on Tuesday then stated in Facebook that he was gladdened with the denial and withdrew his well-wishes to the Kapamilya stars.

“May umamin kasi. Kaya nagalak ako. Kung ganoon po, binabawi ko ang aking masayang pagbati,” he said.

He added: “Happy & excited kasi ako kapag may nabibiyayaan ng buhay. Pasensiya na kung napaaga ang aking Congratulations. Itatabi ko na lang muna iyong regalo  ko sa kanila.”
