Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion sharing the stage once more is a much-awaited moment for many Filipinos, and local celebrities made sure to witness it themselves.

On her Instagram account, Sharon showed her gratitude to her friends in the showbiz industry who have taken the time to attend their "Dear Heart" concert held on Oct. 27 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

In the series of pictures she shared, the Megastar could be seen beaming from ear to ear as she posed for a picture with her FPJ's Ang Probinsyano co-stars Coco Martin and Julia Montes.

Also in the mix are Cherry Pie Picache, Miles Ocampo, Lorna Tolentino, Shaina Magdayao, Angel Aquino, and John Estrada.

"Thank you to my FPJAP family! And Cherry Pie Picache and and my anak Miles Ocampo for your love and support! Family forever! I love you so much!" Sharon captioned her post. "Happy to see the FPJAP family at the backstage of Dear Heart concert."

But perhaps the most special appearance at the pair's concert was their daughter KC, who had shared an emotional moment with them on stage as she sang Sharon's own song Ikaw.

"Ang sarap niyong makita together sa isang stage," KC said while embracing her mother, who could not help but pull out a tissue to wipe tears from her eyes.

"'Yung past, past na 'yun e, but what matters is 'yung ngayon and 'yung bukas. And so pareho ko kayong mahal na mahal, na mahal na mahal," KC said before being met with loud applause from the audience.

Sharon, in turn, also had some sweet words for her daughter, "I trust in all the values we instilled in you, and I'm sure you'll make not only me, but your papa very proud. I love you."

"You both are my dear heart," KC told her parents.

Sharon and Gabby's concert, which is titled after their 1981 film of the same name where their romance developed, comes five years after they last worked together for a kilig-filled commercial for a fast-food chain in 2018.

The two of them revealed that they actually felt awkward around each other during rehearsals, brought about by their lack of communication for a long time until they reunited.

"In the beginning, very ilang kami. He couldn't look at me, I didn't know how to interact with him. Kanina lang kami nag konting warm up," the Megastar said while laughing during an interview with ABS-CBN News.

However, they have now expressed interest in keeping in touch for KC's sake.

The former lovers tied the knot in 1984. They welcomed KC a year later but got legally separated in 1987 until their marriage was finally annulled in 1993.  

Sharon is now married to former senator Kiko Pangilinan, while Gabby is now with Genevieve Gonzales.
