MANILA, Sept 23 (Mabuhay) — Actor Gerald Anderson posted a cryptic message on his Instagram account following a rumor that he got his fellow Star Magic artist Julia Barretto pregnant.
In his Instagram Stories post, Anderson posted a black image showing the words “Congratulations to me.”
The actor also used the fist bump, smiley and praying emojis.
On Monday, Julia denied the rumor that she is pregnant with Anderson’s baby.
On Instagram, the actress shared her own photo showing off her toned abs. In the caption, she wrote: “FAKE NEWS.”
Prior to Julia and Anderson’s posts, ABS-CBN’s talent management arm Star Magic also denied the rumor.
“Definitely it’s not true,” a representative of Star Magic said when reached for comment by ABS-CBN News.
The speculation began after veteran newscaster Jay Sonza posted on his Facebook page a photo collage of the two Kapamilya talents.
Part of his post read: “Congratulations sa aking kapitbahay sa Congressional Village, Bahay Toro, Quezon City.”
“Napatunayan nina Visoy (visayan tisoy) Gerald Anderson at anak nina Dennis Padilla at Marjorie na si Julia Barreto na kapuwa hindi sila baog. After months of love lockdown and ESQ (exact sex quadrant) – may nabuo sa sinapupunan ni Julia,” Sonza added.
To end his Facebook post, Sonza said: “Nahinayak ang batang Dadiangas. nasiyot man jud oi. kapugngan pay tren, dili ang gugmang gauros uros tawon. Happy Monday po. Makikibalita ako kung kailan ang kasal sa aking neighbor.”
In mid-2019, Barretto made headlines after she and Joshua Garcia decided to call it quits.
Later that year, Barretto was rumored to be the third party in Anderson’s relationship with Bea Alonzo, a matter which the actor has already denied. (MNS)
