Sharon Cuneta feels blessed to "renew" her friendship with ex-husband, Gabby Concepcion: "May God bless our renewed friendship, and may we truly learn to forgive as we say we do and keep only all the good that we shared..."


Sharon Cuneta feels overwhelmed by the resounding success of her onscreen reunion with ex-husband and former love team partner, Gabby Concepcion.

Since its online release yesterday, their fastfood commercial has spread like wildfire on social media, garnering over a million views and counting.

It has also triggered all sorts of "hugot feels" among netizens, especially their avid fans who have been long clamoring for their reunion.

Stories of fans getting kilig over the sight of Sharon and Gabby back together onscreen reminded the seasoned actress of their love team's lasting impact on the public.

Initially, Sharon had no idea what to expect from her very first commercial with her former partner after 26 years.

The 52-year-old star wrote in her Instagram post, "So many mixed emotions… I had a feeling this would be something special, mainly because every single thing Gabby and I ever did and made together (including our daughter, hahaha!) was a sure success—and in more ways than one.

"But I didn’t know what to expect in terms of how our public would receive us now that we are older...

"We have been apart for 26 years on-screen and not exactly friends off-screen.

"I didn’t even know what to expect of Gabby when we were about to shoot the TVC, and [I] prayed so hard that it would be, at least, pleasant…"

Suffice to say, it seemed like a pleasant and very promising reunion between Sharon and Gabby as seen from their behind-the-scenes videos.

My friend, Cathy, wrote this but it was my boss Margot Torres from McDo who forwarded it to me. I have been emotional all day since seeing Gabby’s and my TVC... so many mixed emotions. I had a feeling this would be something special - mainly because every single thing Gabby and I ever did and made together (including our daughter, hahaha!) was a sure success, & in more ways than one. But I didn’t know what to expect in terms of how our public would receive us now that we are older, now that we have been apart for 26 years onscreen, & not exactly friends offscreen. I didn’t even know what to expect of Gabby when we were about to shoot the TVC and prayed so hard that it would be at least pleasant. But now, since 10:20am today, I have been overwhelmed... too happy...in major disbelief...and I don’t know what else and how else I am feeling. I have been alternately crying and laughing - all from my heart - all day long. The TVC is a huge success. So very huge. God is truly good. Then I again realized the power of Gabby’s and my team-up...since he was 17 and I was 15 in “Dear Heart,” we had no idea we would be able to touch so many hearts...even make those from the A-B social bracket go to the cinemas to watch Tagalog movies again or perhaps for the first time in their lives...that we would always pull at our audience’s heartstrings and help them remember how love in its purest form - simple, true, beautiful - can make anyone of any age feel so consumed by it and by the joy only it can bring; for all to always feel young - and in love. Now there is more that only Gabby my original Prince Charming and I can do. Read the article. We probably have been doing this for years and didn’t even know it. Thank you, Gabby. For the years of true love, for KC, for all the happy memories. Thank you for and to McDonald’s for allowing us to do this together. Thank you to our amazing God who has allowed what I thought would never be possible in KC’s lifetime to happen.. that Gabby and I would (continued in next post) @concepciongabby @itskcconcepcion @p.c.jr @mcdo_ph

But among all the fans who rejoiced over their reunion, Sharon and Gabby's only daughter, KC Concepcion, may have very well been the one with the biggest smile, the loudest cheers and the most grateful heart.

"Apart from all the blessings that God has always showered [upon] us two... this reconnection with you has been His biggest gift."

so easily fall back into position and do our thing that we - and only we, may I say - can do. We just picked up from where we left off. The power of “US,” Gabby.??May God bless our renewed friendship and may we truly learn to forgive as we say we do and keep only all the good that we shared, for the next 100 years. Our baby girl is happy. She is also in disbelief. And also as thankful as I am that apart from all the blessings that God has always showered US two together with, this reconnection with you has been His biggest gift. Thank you to all Gabby-Sharon fans, old and new. From the bottom of our (blooming daw. Hahaha!) hearts. And yes, hang in there. This MAY just really be ONLY THE BEGINNING...???? HELLO, EVERYONE! We are Gabby and Sharon / Sharon and Gabby. Google us if you’re too young to have loved us two forever. Ask your older relatives and friends about us. We might still be just what you all needed, could learn a thing or two from, especially in this day and age. We love you!??Kitakits! #McDoKamustaKa #wearesharonandgabby #1981topresent #classic #chickenmcdoandfries #lovenaminto @concepciongabby @itskcconcepcion @p.c.jr @mcdo_ph
