THE COCO-JULIA CONNECTION
Coco and Julia first worked together in the 2012 series Walang Hanggan.
While shooting Walang Hanggan, romance reportedly bloomed on the set.
But they both denied that they were in a relationship.
They worked together in three more projects: the movie A Moment In Time (2013), the drama series Ikaw Lamang (2014), and the weekly series Yamishita's Treasure (2015).
In 2015, reports claimed that Julia and Coco were officially in a relationship, but the two kept mum about it.
That same year, they did separate projects. Julia top-billed the TV shows Doble Kara (2015-2017) and Asintado (2018). Coco started doing the prime-time series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.
After Asintado, Julia took a vacation in Germany to spend time with her father. Back then, she was rumored to be pregnant.
In April 2019, showbiz insiders confirmed that Julia gave birth, and that Coco is the father of the baby.
But both stars and their camps neither confirmed nor denied the rumors.
In October 2019, "JULIA MONTES IS BACK" trended on Twitter after the actress was spotted in a supermarket.
In December 2019, Julia took to Instagram to promote Coco's Metro Manila Film Festival entry, 3Pol Trobol: Huli Ka Balbon.
