Claudine Barretto took to Instagram earlier this Saturday, June 16, to post her photo with her niece, Dominique Cojuangco, after they attended the same fashion gala last Tuesday, June 12.

The actress captioned their photo with "My heart," referring perhaps to how overwhelmed she was about their mini-reunion.

Based on her emotional reaction to her reunion with her niece, would she feel the same for Dominique's mom Gretchen Barretto?

Is Claudine reaching out to her sister?

Showbiz netizens will remember that Claudine has an ongoing rift with her elder sister involving some family issues.

But despite this, Claudine and Gretchen continue to show sisterly love by defending each other from bashers.

Back in July 2017, Gretchen called out a netizen who bashed Claudine by comparing their looks.

Claudine was still on the heavier side then, and Gretchen was quick to defend her sister by replying, "I DO NOT APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENT… do not put anyone down while praising me."

Then in August 2017, Claudine returned the favor by defending Gretchen concerning issues about her rumored affair with businessman Atong Ang.

The younger Barretto sister remarked that Gretchen and her partner, Tonyboy Cojuango were "very much in love."

She said in her exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Huwag sana lagyan ng malisya ng ibang tao.

“I mean, hindi kami… ako talaga, mas alam ko, ang ate ko, kaya sila nagtagal ni Tonyboy dahil loyal at faithful ‘yan.

"Very faithful yan.

“Masaya, masaya sila ngayon, yung pamilya nila.”
