Sharon Cuneta on Coco Martin and Julia Montes: ‘Let’s be happy for them’

Sharon Cuneta encouraged everyone to just “be happy” for Coco Martin and Julia Montes after confirming their 12-year romance.

The Megastar expressed her happiness for the couple in an Instagram post on Sunday, May 28. “Umamin na ang nga anak ko, yay!” she began.

The actress revealed she became close to the celebrity pair in 2021, when they worked together on the now-defunct ABS-CBN series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano

“Whatever they may have gone through together, well, it all seems to have been for the best because they are so good to and for each other. They are happy and that makes me and so many others happy,” she wrote as she expressed her love for the two.

“I love them both very much—and no matter what, my friends know that I am protective and loyal and supportive—and that certainly will not change!”

“I believe people should focus on what is and what will rather be than what was. Let’s all be happy with our own lives and be happy for them,” she concluded.

This comes after Coco and Julia confirmed that they have been together for over a decade. “Napakasarap ng pakiramdam namin dahil ito, 12 years na kaming magkasama, pero pareho pa rin gaya ng dati. Nilo-look forward namin kapag may project kami na magkasama kami, and then kapag may pagkakataon, nakakalabas kami, nakikita kami ng mga tao, pero name-maintain namin ‘yung privacy sa buhay namin,” the actor said in a May 23 interview on ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol.

Coco revealed in a 2021 interview on the same program that he already expressed his interest in Julia when they crossed paths even before their projects with their home network in 2012. 

“Ano pa siya noon, bagets, mga 13, 14. Ako siguro, mga 21 tapos nagtangka ako sa kanya—nagtangkang mambola. Eh na-reject ako. Tapos, after that, nagkita na kami sa Walang Hanggan,” he said. 

The local stars started their romance in 2011 and have since worked on various projects as a love team, including Walang Hanggan (2012), A Moment in Time (2013), Ikaw Lamang (2014), and Wansapanataym: Yamishita’s Treasure (2015).
